I have a customer who owns/runs a commercial factory kitchen. We have recently installed a fiber backbone in the "dry" areas. The site consists of about 50ish cameras throughout the plant. about 25 of those being in the food prep and packaging areas.
Every day, at the end of production and packaging the staff get into cleaning mode and everything is sprayed with a mild cleaning chemical and pressure washed down. That mixed with the 32 degree temperature produces a humid and foggy environment for about an hour or so. The ceilings where the cameras are mounted are roughly 40ft up. Right now the existing cameras in place are analog/analog AHD(everfocus EHD935F), with some of those home runs being about 600ft or better.(we inherited this system)
The issues we are having now is some condensation building up in the camera, or the pressured jets pushing past the seal of the camera. And some of the cameras holding water, leaving potential for leaks, which would not be good around food production.
My thoughts are going back with eyeball cameras that are IP67 Rated. Sealed body.
I was looking at the UNIVIEW Line - IPC3614SR3-DPF28
couple that camera with their 64ch NVR, and my cabling runs get to a max of 200ft, using the Fiber Backbone.
Any thoughts or real world experience in this area would be greatly appreciated!!!
