The TCS-II system is a rapid deployable Mesh camera system. Each TCS-II camera node incorporates a mesh radio, an Axis M7001 IP encoder and a 36x zoom dome camera into a rugged IP66 chassis. The TCS-II can be powered from high capacity 24 hour battery packs, or from AC mains.

TCS-II cameras are supplied with a bracket suitable for wall or pole mounting. The camera can be hung from the bracket and can be secured by a padlock.

The rugged weather proof enclosure of the TCS-II camera is suitable for long term outdoor deployment, making them ideal for surveillance, perimeter security, fire control and CBRN applications.

All TCS-II camera nodes within the system are combined in a fluid self forming, self healing mesh containing up to sixteen camera nodes. All nodes within the mesh exchange data on a single frequency. The TCS-II is supplied with an integral 1W amplifier, and will typically operate at a range in excess of 5km where line of sight is available or 600m to 1km where line of sight is not possible.

Control is achieved using a comprehensive web browser application, and the system can store up to eight different configurations for easy recall.

The highly flexible mesh topology means that data can be exchanged between nodes in a point-to-point, or multi-point fashion, range can be extended by using nodes as repeaters.

Security of the entire mesh network can be ensured by the use of the optional AES128, or AES256 encryption.
