Chubb Systems has launched a television out station (TVOS), an all-weather traffic monitoring CCTV camera system which meets the specific technical specifications required by Highways England for its Road Investment Strategy.

The TVOS unit delivers images in ultra-low and zero light conditions, thanks to its infrared array. This means that even in the toughest lighting conditions, the camera provides regional control centres (RCC) the required exceptional images to monitor traffic flow and motorway incidents as well as increase safety for the Highways’ workforce.

The unit is comprised of three key elements: a long-range, high-resolution camera with optical zoom and back light compensation; an infrared array with 500m range; and a television base unit (TVBU). Added benefits of the unit include physical and cyber security accreditation and a remote maintenance service for software upgrades and alterations.

“Alongside the TVOS camera head’s technological benefits are cost reductions,” said Dave Dunnagan, sales director, Chubb Systems. “Capital costs are reduced with no special brackets needed to hold the camera head in place. The unit’s ongoing costs are minimal as power consumption has been reduced.”
