Power resource for ANPR parking

by Mark Rowe

Revader Security has supplied its PowerPak mobile battery unit to Parking Awareness Services. It’s for use in private car parking to support their automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) use. PowerPak provides power to cameras operating where mains power supply is intermittent, interrupted or absent.

Parking Awareness Services is a company that offers parking enforcement, management and hardware. Having found battery packs from other suppliers to be unreliable, they are using the PowerPak to upgrade their equipment, Revader report.

PowerPaks can be installed in virtually any location, the makers say, in minutes and repositioned alongside camera equipment according to changing demands, such as moving crime hotspots. PowerPaks are weatherproof, with an IP66 rating.

Parking Awareness Services is using the PowerPak to support the operation of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras mounted to daylight-saving lamp posts, pictured. The PowerPak 400 model has been designed for use at 4G live monitoring of cameras operating on time-switched supplies, such as daylight-saving lamp posts.

Matthew Wild, Director at Parking Awareness Services said: “We have been absolutely thrilled with Revader’s PowerPak, which has been used to upgrade existing equipment from an unreliable supplier. This now lets us provide our ANPR services on sites where time-switched lamp posts are installed, saving our clients costly groundworks and re-wiring.”

Available in a range of sizes from 400Wh to 2000Wh, PowerPaks can be used alongside Revader cameras and also work with a range of devices from other manufacturers. All units can be used as a stand-alone power pack, remotely powered on/off and used for live monitoring of linked camera footage. Visit
