Rail Installation

by msecadm4921

Video network firm, COE, is behind a CCTV installation on the high-speed rail track, which will eventually link Madrid to Barcelona and the French border.

Revenga, the Spanish Value-Added-Reseller (VAR) for COE, has been commissioned to install CCTV across more than 450km of railway track for the high-speed rail line between Madrid-Zaragoza-Lleida. This first phase of the line includes camera locations at technical buildings, commercial buildings, stations, substations, bridges, overhead crossings and tunnels. Signals from some 500 cameras are transmitted via ATM to key concentration points using COE 300 Series equipment over a single mode optical fibre. In addition to video, audio and data are transmitted over the same fibre, with data channels controlling PTZ cameras, domes and other devices and the audio channel governing access control applications.

COE are also behind a new city centre surveillance project in The Hague. Q-CAT, COE’s Dutch Value-Added-Reseller (VAR) has teamed up with Siemens Nederland to complete the 105-camera project, which is owned by The Hague City Council and controlled by Haaglanden Police Force. The scheme crosses two axes in the city centre, from Central Train Station to Train Station Hollands Spoor, with 87 fixed and 18 dome cameras. Completed to a two-month deadline, Q-CAT carried out all installation work and provided the fibre optics equipment, fibre cables, tubing and closure mounting. Cameras were supplied by Siemens. Each camera has a twin-fibre system connected to COE Series 200 command and control system, enabling them to be operated remotely from Haaglanden police station. The network was constructed using a new fibre tube system, which enables every camera to have its own tube and duplex fibre. Five key points along the network have underground dividers from which a central tube is connected to the police station with 48-fibre minicable. Each camera is protected by vandal-proof RVS (stainless steel) pipe and housing.
