The HERNIS 400 CCTV system is an analogue system consisting of an analogue video matrix and a PC based system server. The internal communication of the HERNIS 400 system operates on a Controlled Area Network (CAN) making it easy to add new communication nodes for camera stations and control panels. The modular design enables easy and virtually limitless expansion and use of decentralized systems. Its integration capabilities to external systems such as drilling, process, automation, security and safety systems on serial, TCP/IP, I/O or relay interfaces, makes the HERNIS 400 a versatile system. The 400 system can be remotely controlled (slave) constituting a part of larger CCTV systems, or it can be used to control other systems (master). It can further be configured as a hybrid system including both analogue and digital (IP based) features. By including an NVR you allow for simultaneous recording and streaming of all cameras. A programmable text generator enables camera names, prepositions and alarms to be shown in the video image adding to the operator’s level of control. The 400 system matrix may be equipped with audio. A redundant CPU makes the system less susceptible to hardware failures thus improving the systems overall uptime.
