Major Iranian Iron Manufacturer Finds IP Solution
Increase the security and efficiency of the factory
Foladin Company is located in Amoul city, close to the Caspian Sea in the northern reaches of Iran and not far from the capital city Tehran. Foladin manufactures iron products, and it is one of the biggest companies of its kind in the country.
Their facilities include offices and factories that are filled with machinery, as well as a large parking lot and various outdoor settings. As a leading manufacturer, the company was looking to build upon the solid foundations it had already established in the industry by increasing the security and efficiency on its manufacturing site. To accomplish this, Foladin had its sights set on an IP surveillance solution to monitor the production process inside the plant as well as all of the activity that takes place on the premises. Ultimately, they found what they were looking for, thanks to the combined efforts and cooperation of distributor Pooya Fara Negar (PFN) and VIVOTEK, who together provided a cost effective IP solution of superior quality. Before the agreement being made, Foladin Company also made evaluation on products from other leading surveillance brands. However, VIVOTEK was chosen for its high quality and value. By April of 2014, the project was successfully deployed, and fully satisfied the customer's expectations.
Equip the manufacturing site with enhanced security
Faced with the task of tackling surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, and video analysis, a fleet of over 200 VIVOTEK cameras was installed on the manufacturing site. Included in the installation were two of VIVOTEK's sleekest models, FD8136 and FD8166. These ultra-mini fixed dome cameras are not only designed to be compact in size, they pack a mean punch as well. With selectable focal lengths, high viewing resolution, and 1- and 2-megapixel CMOS sensors respectively, Foladin's production halls are well equipped. These cameras stealthily capture superior image quality without drawing people's attention. Three additional models were installed for the outdoor and parking areas: IP8332-C, FD8137HV, and SD8362E. The latter camera is an extremely durable, dynamic, and detail-capturing workhorse. It comes with a tamper detection function, meaning that an alarm will be triggered if anyone attempts to block, redirect, defocus, or spray-paint the camera. The former two cameras excel in resolution, and between them, they have weather- and vandal-proof housing, WDR technology and removable IR-cut filters for all lighting conditions. Further, built-in IR illuminators on the FD8137HV ensure optimal visibility, and the camera is capable of handling diverse lighting conditions both day and night, making it a perfect solution for outdoor environments.
Immensely secure Foladin with VIVOTEK solutions
William Ku, VIVOTEK's spokesperson and vice president of the International Business Division, remarked on the benefits that the installation brought to the manufacturing site: "With over 200 cameras in place, the manufacturing site at Foladin is immensely secure, and the models with which we outfitted the premises provide surveillance that is second to none. Whether inside the buildings or outside on the grounds, ease of video control and analysis mean that our solution has brought a level of security to the company that both operators and employees can feel confident in."
