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.

In addition to its 5kV, 32A rating, this Deep Sea Tether Connector also features dynamic pressure balancing via free flow of dielectric oil from the surface to the connector, enabling ROVs to operate at subsea depths of up to 7000m.
