Surveillance Camera Solutions (CCTV)
Security on premises and in office buildings is growing increasingly in importance. The monitoring of indoor and outdoor areas using IP video cameras and access control measures are being expanded constantly. Specific cabling implementations and remote powering (PoE) are often used in this area.
Security solutions for premises
Security on premises and in office buildings is growing increasingly in importance. The monitoring of indoor and outdoor areas using video cameras is being expanded constantly, with cameras that communicate via Internet Protocol (IP) becoming increasingly popular. Video and control signals can be transmitted without any issues via standard data cabling.
Access control terminals and door locks are increasingly migrated to IP systems. Dedicated LAN cabling is also the ideal solution to connect such devices.
Separate LAN cabling for security
A challenge is posed by the often remote position of the surveillance cameras (CCTV) and access control devices. We recommend planning the cabling separately to the office cabling. In many cases, cameras have to be attached to the outside of the building, where there are no outlets nearby. For such cases, R&M has developed the field-mountable FM45 RJ45 connector, which can be connected directly to installation cables of any length in an instant. An extra terminal outlet, causing an unnecessary (dis-) connection point, can be omitted.
Combination of indoor and outdoor requirements
In order to protect the connections from environmental influences such as moisture, dust, and chemicals, R&M offers suitable housings and boxes that meet high protection classes.
Cabling that runs indoors and outdoors have to conform to both sets of requirements. Indoors, fire protection classes have to be fulfilled. Outdoors, some protection against moisture and water have to be applied. Specialized cables, often with dual material jackets, can offer this feature.
Integrated power supply solutions
The power supply of the cameras also must be taken into account. This can be made via classic low-voltage distribution (e.g. 230V) or via a remote power supply over the data network (Power over Ethernet (PoE) or Power over Ethernet Plus (PoEP)).
In FO solutions, a power supply concept together with the data connection must be included. Hybrid
FO / Power cables may offer a solution here.
