Various versions are available with connections for 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 16 cameras. Depending on the version, the servers are equipped with up to six signal lines and four alarm outputs. In case of a event or a fault, it enables messages to be generated and forwarded independently. The operator, service engineer or alarm control center is alerted by means of e-mail or SMS (short message service) as required: either directly or via the Internet.
Several picture sections can be monitored by means of the integral motion detection function, and trigger events when changes occur, e.g. generate a SIMATIC PCS 7 message.
One product version with integral digital recording offers the opportunity for recording the pictures locally on the video Web server over a longer period and to evaluate them later in the SIMATIC PCS 7 system. In this way it is possible to view and evaluate not only the event itself, but also the important period leading up to it.SIVICON is maintenance-free, easy to install and can be controlled by means of SIMATIC PCS 7 or any Internet browser. A convenient HTML interface is available for configuration purposes.
The SIVICON video Web server is integrated into SIMATIC PCS 7 by means of ActiveX controls. There is one ActiveX control for displaying video pictures and one for controlling the cameras. In addition there is the option of forwarding events that have been recorded by the video Web server to the SIMATIC PCS 7 signaling system by means of an additional application.
