Chubb Systems has launched a television outstation (TVOS) and an all-weather traffic monitoring CCTV camera system that it says delivers the high quality images demanded by smart motorways. The unit comprises a long-range, high-resolution camera with optical zoom and back light compensation, an infrared array with 500m range, and a television base unit (TVBU).
The system’s infrared array enables the TVOS to deliver images in zero light conditions to monitor traffic flow and motorway incidents as well as increase safety for the highway’s workforce.
Added benefits include physical and cyber security accreditation and a remote maintenance service for software upgrades and alterations. The TVBU also serves as the outstation element in the Highways England CCTV network, connecting the relevant cameras to the National Roads Telecommunication System.
