MG Squared to demonstrate MIC Series integration at ASIS


At ASIS 2013, MG Squared will demonstrate the integration of its Lowering System with MIC Series 550 high-speed pan-tilt-zoom cameras from Bosch Security Systems, Inc. MG Squared’s Lowering System is a device used frequently in intelligent transportation system (ITS) and secure perimeter installations. The device makes it even easier and safer to install and maintain pole-mounted MIC Series 550 cameras in any location, regardless of height.

“The combination of the MIC Series 550 and the Lowering System from MG Squared is field proven in installations around North America,” said Lloyd Uliana, Business Development Engineer, Bosch Security Systems, Inc. “It enables customers to mount our equipment at the best heights and locations for their traffic surveillance requirements, while providing improved access to the cameras for any maintenance needs.”

MIC Series cameras provide 550 TVL resolution with 36x or 28x optical zoom for sharp images even at great distances. When combined with a MIC Series IP Power Supply, which features an integrated IP video encoding system, the MIC Series 550 is transformed into a network surveillance camera that conforms to the National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol. This ensures that the MIC Series 550 camera integrates with traffic management devices.

Built to survive harsh environments, MIC Series cameras feature an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated housing to ensure complete protection against dust and water ingress without the need for pressurization. With a flat window, long-life silicone wiper and optional washer system, customers can capture images that are free from distortion in dry and wet conditions. For reliable operation in tough roadway applications, the cameras can withstand 130 mile per hour sustained winds and gusts up to 180 miles per hour, as well as shock and vibration up to 20g.

Likewise, the MG Squared Lowering Device has been proven to perform in the harshest conditions in installations throughout North America, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

With a Lowering System from MG Squared, MIC Series camera installation and maintenance can be performed on the ground by one technician, eliminating the need for bucket trucks, cone crews or lane closures. This provides tremendous cost savings as well as a more efficient and safer work process. It also frees design engineers from previous limitations on mounting heights, since pole and camera locations are no longer determined by where or how high a bucket truck can reach.

MG Squared believes the successful integration of the two systems will be an added benefit to ITS and high-security application end users for years to come.
