BACKGROUND License Plate Recognition (LPR) systems allow a law enforcement agency to conduct surveillance on potential suspects and monitor for suspicious activity at a fraction of the cost of using staff. A securitycompanyin St. Petersburg, Florida has become a leader in providing law enforcement and security organizations, with next-generation LPR systems, and needed a solution to power their remote security operations.
THE CHALLENGE These systems typically consist of at least one high-end Pant-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera with power requirements approaching 60 watts. Depending on the application, this camera may also need a heater or blower system and an IR light source. The typical mobile LPR system will have a solar panel and battery for power that will operate at either 12VDC or 24VDC. Since most IP cameras run off of PoE, there is a requirement to get from the 12VDC and 24VDC available from the solar battery to the 48VDC to 56VDC required for the PoE input.
SOLUTION Antaira's INJ-0200G-60-24-T is the perfect solution for the project's needs, with an IEEE 802.3bt Type 3, and capability of providing up to 60 Watts of power to tail end devices!
