Eight-channel recorder from Moxa Americas features support for SCADA systems and supports Modbus/TCP for direct communication. Courtesy: MoxaNetworking products provider Moxa Americas and ITS intelligent transportation systems has introduced an industrial-grade eight-channel network video recorder (NVR) designed to meet the special requirements of energy plants, water treatment centers, oil and gas pipelines, oil drilling platforms, chemical processing, public transportation, and other harsh environments. 

Scalable for remote management flexibility, the MxNVR-IA8-T supports bandwidth-efficient H.264, MPEG4 and MJPEG codec's and records up to eight Moxa brand IP cameras or video encoder VPort streams in event-triggered or scheduled recordings over IP networks. Two built-in 2.5 in. SATAII hard disk drive bays allows for user selection and simple expansion in video storage, while six DIs and two DOs support a variety of connected external devices.

Hardened design

Unlike conventional NVRs, the MxNVR-IA8-T has hardened features that include built-in protection against high EMI and electrical surges, superior reliability due to not incorporating a heater or fan, a wide operating range of -40 to 75 °C (-40 to 167 °F), and an ambient humidity range up to 95%. Standard NVRs, like those deployed in commercial video surveillance, often fail in industrial conditions, leading to security being compromised.

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems are often used to monitor and control industrial plants or equipment, as well as to safeguard government infrastructure including water treatment and distribution. The Moxa MxNVR-IA8-T supports Modbus/TCP for direct communication with SCADA systems, making it simple to create a distributed monitoring system over an IP network and allowing for the recording and transmission of critical alert videos in response to SCADA events. It also supports IEEE 802.1X for high network security.
