WTI’s Viper camera takes bite out of maintenance

WTI’s new Viper H.265 HD30L traffic camera eliminates much of the manual upkeep required by traditional camera deployments—saving transportation agencies hours of on-site maintenance.

Remote and continuous 360o rotation in both axes allows transportation agencies to tweak camera angles without sending a technician out to the field. This is especially useful in corridors with on-going commercial development that can block views. An operator can remotely tilt the camera when an obstruction—such as a new building, construction equipment or utility pole—is put up.

A hydrophilic self-cleaning window uses naturally occurring rainfall to clean debris off the lens. According to Lauren Schilling, a sales manager with the company, many agencies purposefully rotate cameras to the sky when rainfall is iminent to eliminate the need for regularly planned cleaning. In addition, a brake option for high winds can also lock cameras in place, eliminating the need to reposition cameras after storms or other weather events.

Schilling also draws attention to the cameras’ mobility as another cost-saving feature, pointing out that the camera can be deployed, set up and configured quickly. It can even be installed on emergency vehicles to provide monitoring capabilities on the move.

Manufactured locally in Ventura, Calif. and introduced to the market last year, the Viper H.265 HD30L traffic camera is currently deployed by state department of transportations, cities and county governments across the US — including in Texas, Florida, Alabama, California and other states.
