Product Information
Product Specification

The WCCTV Network Rail Type Approved Tower (Certificate Number PA05/04778) is a rapid deployment CCTV tower that has been specifically designed to provide video surveillance for track-side, level crossing and depot applications.

It is the only rapid deployment CCTV tower with PADS approval for track-side deployment due to its non-conductive design.

The Network Rail Type Approved Tower integrates wireless technology (4G and 3G) to transmit live and recorded video and alarms, a market leading Predator camera with infrared imaging and 360 degree pan, tilt and 36x zoom, audio speakers to enable a remote challenge to occur and a removable hard drive (up to 4TB) for local storage.

As a truly rapid-deployment CCTV system, it can be installed and fully-operational in just a matter of minutes - making it ideal for temporary or mobile rail applications.

Powering options include:

The Network Rail Tower can be used as a project management and Health and Safety tool. Office based personnel can access the cameras during working hours to solve onsite problems and check regulations are being followed by personnel and sub-contractors, reducing the need for site visits.

It can be provided as a standalone solution or as part of a managed service pack - including survey, installation, monitoring, maintenance, redeployment and 3rd party key holder escalation.

The Network Rail Tower is available for sale or on a rental basis.
