MVIS/BARTCO UK | Tried and Tested Solar IP
Bartco UK have always been keen innovators, with a number of ‘firsts’ being brought into the UK VMS market, as well as leading the way when it comes to integrating other technologies into their VMS and Solar Intelligent Platform (Solar IP)
One innovation and first that hit the UK’s highways network is the Bartco UK Solar Intelligent Platform (Solar IP).
First produced in 2012 with the BARTCO solar 2012 unit, Bartco UK changed and made improvements to the product in 2013 – and became the Solar IP
The Solar IP is an innovative mobile product, allowing the flexible combination of a selection of temporary intelligent traffic systems equipment and event management solutions.
Bartco UK realised there was a need for a solar platform that could integrate with CCTV, ANPR, Lighting and HD Wavetronix radar, and the company have supplied the platform to highways for roadworks as CCTV units, the police for CCTV and ANPR and many other clients to use in off highways scenarios such as car parks
As Bartco UK were the first company with innovation of the Solar IP, especially as a CCTV platform, it is tried and tested. The system has been out on many schemes in the last 6 years, since it was designed and has proven to be a favourite with MVIS customers on motorway schemes.
Currently the proven MVIS Solar IP on hire utilisation is high, due to this the company are looking at building more for the hire fleet to meet the ever-growing demand of this tried and tested system. There are also a number of units being produced for major contractors and parking companies for use with CCTV and ANPR.
One major benefit of the platform is the combination of equipment housed in the platform may be easily altered to meet the client’s changing requirements.
The platform includes a 12V, 24V or 48V battery recharged operation by the latest solar charging system, and also includes new 250W solar PV panels designed to optimise ultraviolet light in a northern hemisphere environment. The Solar IP is not dependent on external energy supply and is environmentally friendly and silent in operation. It is simple and cost-effective to deploy, requiring no civil engineering and third-party communications.
Being a portable system and not always having to be lifted into place, the Bartco Solar IP brings safety features and benefits that other products on the UK market can’t deliver.
It’s the years of development, experience and constant adaption and innovation that sets the Bartco Solar IP above the rest.
