The Conversion Cable... service replacement made easy...

Ruggedized domes, such as the Oculus from Silent Sentinel, have been used widely throughout CCTV schemes for almost 10 years now with more than 6,000 units from Silent Sentinel alone.

Ruggedized domes, such as the Oculus from Silent Sentinel, have been used widely throughout CCTV schemes for almost 10 years now with more than 6,000 units from Silent Sentinel alone. As many of these hard working domes are nearing the end of their working lives, the replacement cycle for CCTV integrators is well underway.

Where systems are being upgraded as part of a refreshment plan, the issues that can arise from changing products to the latest versions can be predicted and easily managed. However, when a replacement is required with a more urgent response then there is a need for certainty that the replacement product can easily be installed and set to work.

Silent Sentinel have been very mindful of this requirement from their supply partners and have ensured the complete Oculus product range supports a wide range of protocols, mounting and cabling systems. The latest addition to the range to make this even easier is the Conversion Cable, which enables a product such as the MIC 400 to be replaced without the need for any cabling changes. Simply by removing the old camera and installing the conversion cable, the Oculus set to the Forward Vision protocol is ready to be installed. While it is always advisable to shut down the power supply, many units have been “Hot Swapped” without the need for any other actions. James Longcroft, Silent Sentinel, said “a number of our clients are now replacing older versions of the Oculus, MIC and even some of the more recent entrants to the Rugged Dome market with our product range.

This is allowing them to narrow the number of products needed to be held in stock to support their CCTV estates and the Conversion Cable has been very welcomed in making this task even easier.”
