The utilization of a Lowering System provides distinct benefits in both the design and maintenance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and security surveillance systems. The Lowering System allows the entire camera and housing to be unlatched from its position atop a pole or structure and lowered on a stainless steel aircraft cable to ground level. When the camera is lowered, the only cable travelling within the pole is the lowering cable. The sensitive data and video cables are secured and separated inside the pole, which means the cables are not subjected to stress or bending over pulleys during the operation. Locking and guide pins cause the camera to lock into the exact position every time. This provides for safe, simple and quick camera installations, maintenance or replacement.
•Eliminates costly and cumbersome bucket/lift trucks and associated
•Safe and simple ground level maintenance or replacement of devices
mounted to lowering system.
•Maintenance cost, time, and personnel reduced.
•Lowers cameras, light fixtures, and other devices electrically in seconds
or manually in minutes.
•Mountable at any height or location and on most existing structures.
•Mountable to customized concrete, steel, aluminum, and fiberglass poles.
•External system available for easy retrofit onto existing infrastructure.
•Patented contact connector compatible for most ITS devices and
•Contact connector disconnects electrically, allowing only movement
of the stainless steel lowering cable during operation.
•Eliminates engineering design constraints with regard to camera
location or mounting height.
•Custom contact connectors for use with IP communications, coax,
power and twisted pair.
•Compliance with EU legislation.
