Cincoze Embedded Industrial Computers – At the Heart of Smart Security Monitoring
December 10, 2020 – Modern life is becoming more convenient as more smart devices join the interconnected world. However, when everything is connected, security risks increase, and people have started to pay attention. Smart security monitoring falls roughly into two categories: mobile and fixed. Mobile applications in harsh in-vehicle environments must withstand long-term stress caused by constant vibration and temperature extremes in public safety vehicles such as police cars, ambulances and fire trucks, and public transportation such as trains and cruise ships and airplanes. Fixed monitoring encompasses indoor and outdoor applications such as central monitoring centers and traffic monitoring. Regardless of the environment, smart surveillance systems need to provide functions like image and object recognition, motion detection, and screen warnings to aid disaster response, traffic management, information collection, and data integration.
High-Speed IP Cameras for Smooth and Reliable Operation
Today’s high-speed wired IP cameras use Power-over-Ethernet, drawing power through existing network cabling, rather than requiring a separate power source. In the smart surveillance system architecture, multiple IP cameras connected simultaneously cause additional pressure on the network resulting in unstable image transmission and insufficient PoE power supply inhibiting normal operation. Cincoze DIAMOND series embedded industrial computers have built-in multiple IEEE802.3at PoE+ compatible ports, each rated up to 25.5 W, which can meet each high-speed IP camera’s power requirements and stably drive all connected terminal devices.
Fast Storage and Backup
Monitoring and analyzing incoming video streams is just the first step, recording, storing, and backing up the stored data is also required. Cincoze DIAMOND series embedded industrial computers support SSD, HDD, and mSATA storage options and feature a PCIe x4 NVMe SSD slot, which can transfer and access large amounts of data quickly. RAID options include RAID 0/1/5/10, providing the most effective, safe, repairable, and cost-effective storage. For quick access to emergency footage, the storage area is accessible from the front maintenance panel. Data is easy to collect, the system is easier to maintain, and plug-and-play is supported.
Ultimate Performance and Safety Certification
In addition to recording and playing video, smart surveillance systems also need to automatically analyze video content to detect people and objects in real-time to provide near-instantaneous alerts to react to incidents quickly. Cincoze DIAMOND series has options for 9/8th Gen Intel® Xeon® and Core™ CPUs to provide real-time analysis of images, rapid notification and warnings, and monitor on-site conditions. DIAMOND series is designed for wide temperature range of -40–70 ℃, shock resistance of 5/50 Grms, and has safety mechanisms such as electrostatic discharge, overcurrent, and overvoltage protection. Many models have EN 50155 (EN 50121-3-2 only) and E-Mark, with the double certification meeting the installation requirements in various vehicles and monitoring systems.
The Cincoze DIAMOND series can be equipped with additional expansion modules, providing multiple I/O options for different monitoring setups. The DIAMOND series is a world-class embedded industrial computer suitable for any intelligent monitoring system from transportation and commercial monitoring to plant and power grid control rooms.
