Mobile Surveillance Unit
The mobile surveillance trailer is designed to provide a single solution
for the deployment of surveillance and video storage in locations where
either power or Internet capabilities are inadequate or impractical. Primarily
geared towards the oil and gas industry, the units can be placed almost
anywhere where a hardwired solution is not viable.
The primary power source for this system is an array of on-board deep
cycle batteries. Solar panels are used to recharge and supplement these
batteries during daylight hours and perform best on sunny days. Should
weather factors diminish the available sunlight or, if for any other reason
the solar system is unable to keep up with the system demands, a fuel
efficient on-board diesel generator is also monitoring the power system.
The generator will self-activate, running only long enough to recharge
the batteries. After sufficient recharge is achieved, the generator will
shut off and continue to monitor until reactivation is necessary. Additionally
there is an 110VAC battery charger included if constant AC power source
is available. To power the system with AC, you need only to connect power
to the trailer unit with an extension cord rated at 16 gauge or larger.
Should this power be interrupted, the system will revert to solar/generator
- 5'x8' single-axle metal-framed trailer
- Stabilizer Jacks
- 30’ Pneumatic (optional 20’ cable-driven) telescopic mast,
with pre-wired Nycoil cable conduit
- Solar: Three (3) 200-watt 12VDC solar panels with 30A charge/status/load
- Battery: Eight (8) 350Ah deep-cycle battery
- Generator: Air-cooled single cylinder diesel engine powering a 12VDC 150A
generator, intelligent battery status monitoring, and auto-start, charge,
and stop capability. (est. fuel consumption, 4hrs/US gallon)
- Fuel Capacity: 30 to 50 US gallons
- 100A-12VDC battery charger (powered by external 110VAC source)
The system is equipped with four (4) full hi-definition (up to 2688X1520)
bullet cameras. Each camera is capable of 3x optical zoom. Vari-focal
lens allows up to a 93-degree horizontal viewing angle. Each of these
cameras is equipped with 30 LED IR illuminators with a range of up to
33 meters in total darkness. The bullet cameras are rated IP66 for dust
and moisture resistance, making them ideal for construction or other environments
where dirt and moisture may be a concern.
An additional 2.1 MP high-definition (up to 1920x1080) Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ)
dome camera is also included. This camera allows up to 20x optical zoom
and is equipped with ten high powered IR LED that can illuminate and area
of total darkness up to 495’. It can configured to auto patrol multiple
specific areas of concern - each with its own level of zoom, be manually
controlled by authorized personnel through the monitoring software interface,
or set to a static location, such as an entrance gate for a detailed visual
record of employee and visitor traffic. The PTZ is also rated IP66 for
dust and moisture resistance.
Supplemental lighting is also included and can be configured in the form
of visible illumination (detectible by the human eye) to actually light
the protected area or infrared (IR) for more covert monitor/recording,
if visible illumination of the area is not desired. Visible illumination
can be configured to automatically come on at night, and then turn off
during the day.
Server & Additional Electronics:
The Network Video Recorder is capable of managing 4 to 64 cameras. Video
storage utilizes Western Digital (Purple) Surveillance Hard Disk Drives.
The WD Purple series HDD is specifically designed to handle the 24/7 activity
of a surveillance system. Video archive storage can easily exceed four
months locally, depending upon configuration.
The 21-inch HD monitor allows local interface to the server and enables
it to act as a stand-alone
solution. The system can also be accessed remotely either by a local network
if available (i.e. construction yard with offices and a established network
in proximity), or over the internet, dependent on suitable commercial
wireless availability (recurring expenses would apply).
