ANPR Cameras

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras are now

an essential element of road safety and national security strategies across Europe.

This case study looks at the need for weatherproof

power and data connectivity to provide uninterrupted operation of ANPR networks.






The Challenge


ANPR cameras need to be kept up and running during all weather conditions.

The systems require reliable power and data connections which can

withstand harsh environmental conditions to allow vehicle movements to

be tracked and reported from remote locations. Bulgin was asked to provide

a durable and waterproof connectivity solution to eliminate potential downtime for ANPR systems.


Buglin’s range of environmentally-sealed Buccaneer connectors

offer a robust, easy-to-use solution for power and data connections.

Our Standard and Ethernet Buccaneer connectors ensure secure,

‘fit and forget’ connectivity down to -40 °C, even in

heavy rain and high winds. Together with an IP67-rated,

vandal-resistant housing and the use of industrial components,

this provides a secure, low maintenance solution ideal

for use across national road networks.


The Results 


Integration of the Standard and Ethernet Buccaneer connectors into the

design of roadside ANPR cameras allows continuous operation of vehicle tracking networks,

providing consistently high quality images, even under adverse environmental conditions.
