What makes the VCS different from off-the-shelf security DVR's?

As former steel process engineers, we realized the need for a tool that assists in troubleshooting mill problems that VCR/DVR's just don't do.

 

The concept of what type of VCS or DVR is completely different. DVR's have 4,8, or 16 camera systems. The VCS is based on Total Images per Second. It's clear that you have more scalability with the VCS. Do you want to purchase another DVR when you've reached that 8 or 16 camera limit? It's easy to add cameras on the VCS you originally purchased.

 

The following summaries Five Key Benefits of the VCS:

  • The VCS can be integrated within your PLC or Level 2 computer systems. Track images by product number and date. When you want to see images for heat # 1234, slab # 23456, or coil # 345678, just enter the ID number.

  • Unique Camera Configuration - Image Capture Rate:
    • Highest for critical cameras, ie, 10 Images/Second & above
    • 3-9 ips for less critical cameras
    • Even lower for other monitoring cameras, 1-2 ips

  • Unique Camera Configuration - Storage Capacity:
    • Longest for critical cameras, ie, 30 days or more
    • 14 Days for less critical cameras
    • Even lower for other monitoring cameras, ie, 7 days

  • We offer three high end Video Capture System products:
    • VCS 100 Series has an 8 Disk Drive capacity
