The MBE 500 is smaller, lighter, and more cost-effective than the VIMTEC MBE 1500, and is designed for basic outdoor monitoring tasks.
The unit can operate up to 6 days autonomously without reloading. An optional on-board fuel cell system allows operation of up to 60 days. The MBE 500 TA has the same high standards as the bigger MBE 1500 regarding high quality components, mobility, easy operation, and tamper security.
After setting up the MBE 500 at the desired location video cameras will detect potential incidents, and the Heitel video recording and transmission system sends the data to the control center for verification.
The VIMTEC MBE 500 can be set up in a few steps even by people with limited technical skills in just a few minutes. Once it has been placed in position the four crank supports are extended. The MBE 500 has a 6 m long pneumatic telescopic mast for surveillance. Once the mast has been extended to the desired height, the video management system is activated. A phone call is made to the control center to check that it’s picking up the signals from the MBE 500.
The monitoring covers a variety of perspectives depending on the components of the mast head. The control center can respond to incidents reported by the MBE 500 by addressing individuals directly through loudspeakers and if necessary taking further action. All video images will be saved on spot as a permanent or event-controlled recording. The MBE contains a sophisticated security system for its own protection. Breaking, theft or vandalism can be detected and reported reliably.
