With a Lowering System from MG Squared, MIC camera installation and maintenance can be performed on the ground by one technician, eliminating the need for bucket trucks, cone crews or lane closures. This provides tremendous cost savings as well as a more efficient and safer work process. It also frees design engineers from previous limitations on mounting heights, since pole and camera locations are no longer determined by where or how high a bucket truck can reach.
“The combination of MIC cameras and Lowering Systems from MG Squared delivers added flexibility for customers to maintain and service the MIC throughout its long lifespan. We expect nine years of operation from this camera, and MG Squared helps customers take full advantage of this; significantly reducing the total cost of ownership for traffic operations and transportation authorities alike,” said Zareh Megerdoonian, Business Development Manager - ITS, for Bosch. “With the release of the new MIC IP 7000 HD cameras, Bosch now delivers industry-leading HD imaging to the market with a solution that can operate in brutal environments and extreme lighting conditions, while providing the added ease of Power over Ethernet (PoE) installation.”The new MIC IP starlight 7000 HD delivers images in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 720p HD resolution at up to 60 frames per second. It provides video images where others fail, even down to 0.01 lux, and captures clear images in color down to 0.05 lux – when others switch to monochrome – to reveal accurate color details that support in vehicle identification. The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD offers 1080p resolution and captures multiple exposures of the same scene for maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions, such as in tunnels or under highway overpasses. Wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation ensure that moving objects are enhanced and can be easily identified.
The entire MIC family of cameras provides reliable surveillance in the most difficult outdoor locations, combining high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated IP architecture. The cameras withstand a wide range of conditions – from -76 to +140 degrees Fahrenheit with up to 100 percent humidity, as well as rain and snow, high wind gusts and significant vibration.
Likewise, the MG Squared Lowering Device has been proven to perform in the harshest conditions in installations throughout North America, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. MG Squared believes the successful integration of its system with the MIC cameras will be an added benefit to ITS and high-security applications for years to come.
