Surveillance is crucial to prevent theft and ensure the safety of the goods moving through the port. Coastal weather can reek havoc on cameras. One of the greatest challenges to the port’s surveillance operations is the huge volume of windblown sand.
The local MESSOA partner, installed a CCTV solution with more than 40pcs of Messoa SDF416U cameras on Crane's in Haifa port. Each Crane has four cameras to observe and control it. The Messoa SDF416U housing rated IP67 and is very tolerant of temperature and humidity changes.
MESSOA cameras were chosen for their robustness since they operate even in an ocean climate with very little maintenance. Also, MESSOA combines a high image resolution with an internal video output and V-Phase Adjust, thus fulfilling important safety requirements so that the cameras can also be used to warn employees of dangerous situations.
"When we saw the images from a MESSOA camera for the first time, it was like watching a DVD - the images were so clear. This sort of quality has become an absolute necessity in our sector", explained Officer manager. Those were the main reasons for choosing MESSOA. He adds: "It is not enough to see what is going on - we also have to be able to hear it. Our entire safety depends on these two features."
Why use WDR and Vandal-proof camera?
The SDF416U utilizes Lumii II technology to overcome night time issues. Vandal-proof housing that is IP67 certified is designed specifically for harsh environments. An optional heater maximizes protection of the camera in extremely cold weather. The unique temperature range from -30° to +
