Axis Communications introduces a unique, outdoor-ready cabinet, specially designed for Axis outdoor network cameras. The cabinet blends in together with the camera and can be installed on wall, pole or corner. The camera can be mounted on the door of the cabinet for a sleek design and easy installation. AXIS T98A-VE Surveillance Cabinet Series protects mains power and low-voltage units, such as power supply, media converter and fuse from tough weather and vandalism.

“Up till now, installers have had to look elsewhere to find a solution that could join and protect different components, such as midspan, power supply, media converter, fuse, surge protection and mains power units used for a network camera installation. Axis’ latest system solution is the answer to their quest, and it saves time and money in the field,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management. “AXIS T98A-VE Surveillance Cabinet Series is designed for electrical safety and to enable installation in steps, with a compartment that fits many accessories and it is made of material that withstands extreme weather and protects against impact and vandal acts.”

AXIS T98A-VE Surveillance Cabinet Series comes with a mounting plate to simplify installation and cable protection attachment. For better installation efficiency and money saving, the inner compartment with a DIN rail can be split into two sections: one to fit mains power units such as fuse and surge protection, and another section for those units that do not require installation by a certified electrician. The cabinet is IP66-rated for protection against the ingress of dust and high pressure water jets from any direction as well as IK10-rated for protection against impact and vandal acts. An optional electrical safety kit is available, which includes surge protection, a fuse and an alarm-door switch to detect intrusion or vandalism of the cabinet. AXIS T98A-VE Series comes in four versions for flexibility, dependent on whether fixed, fixed domes, or PTZ dome cameras are used, or if the cabinet is used as standalone unit.

The surveillance cabinet provides the complete solution for those installers who have been searching for third party suppliers for connection or electrical-safety boxes. AXIS T98A-VE cabinet is ideal in city surveillance or critical infrastructure installations where a sturdy, vandal-resistant and water-protected box is a must.

AXIS T98A-VE Surveillance Cabinet Series will be available in Q2 2012.
