With rising value of scrap metal and struggling economies throughout the world, theft of copper and other materials is on the rise. Surveillance is increasing at energy substations, power plants and other critical infrastructure locations in attempt to deter thieves from cashing in stolen copper wiring, aluminum doors and other materials at scrap yards or metal melting facilities. ForTronix has developed industrial quality video surveillance and fiber optic system that can be networked with multiple locations and cameras to withstand the tough environment including vibration, extreme heat, moisture and low light conditions.
Remote monitoring and fiber optic of the electric power grid is as important as ever. Whether you need to monitor equipment, or protect from theft and tampering, having real-time connected monitoring is critical to your operation. ForTronix’s Camera and Cloud Service provide an end-to-end solution for remote monitoring of electrical substations and other critical infrastructure areas. The cameras can be installed and online in minutes. The Cloud Service and web application provide a turn-key monitoring solution with no integration or expensive custom software. The rich feature set provides data logging, alerts and alarms, and image archive.
“Electrical power supply is one of the fundamentals for social production and public life.“
With a comprehensive reform in electrical power sectors network, all power plants are about to improve production efficiency by realizing safe production and downsizing staff. Set up a surveillance center in coordination center to monitor data and images of power plants so that we can have a real-time and direct understanding of the whole operation in each power sector, and thus respond to emergency timely. ForTronix surveillance system will definitely contribute to the power industry development. If you represent an electric power company, and need to upgrade or expand your facility’s video surveillance system, you’ve come to the right place. We’re experts at designing IP surveillance systems as well as wireless security solutions in remote areas. We can customize any surveillance system to meet your company or cooperative’s needs. Electric utility surveillance and optical communication is beneficial in the following ways:
. Helps to keep workers from violating safety protocols
. Decreases liability
. Ensures facility meets security regulations
. Deters trespassers and unauthorized individuals from entering high-security areas
. Enables mobile viewing for off-site monitoring
. Captures incidents which might hinder electricity production
