Intertraff has been using components in its traffic enforcement cameras since 2015 that can withstand extreme temperatures, eliminating the need for additional cooling systems. This has enabled the cameras to operate effectively in regions with high temperatures, such as the Middle East, without bulky air conditioning systems inside the camera housings. This approach has also reduced energy consumption and the carbon footprint of the system.
By combining lower power consumption with solar energy, Intertraff has created a “self-sufficient” traffic enforcement camera that can be deployed in remote areas where power is not readily available. With just one solar panel, the camera can operate continuously, simplifying the installation process.
The integration of solar panels in traffic enforcement cameras offers numerous benefits, including significant cost savings, as there is no need to invest in additional cooling systems or install power lines. The system also reduces the risk of power outages, ensuring that the cameras are operational at all times. Additionally, solar-powered cameras contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future by reducing reliance on fossil fuels and lowering emissions.
In conclusion, Intertraff’s innovative use of solar panels in its traffic enforcement cameras has provided a sustainable and cost-effective solution to powering cameras in harsh environments. This has enabled the company to expand its operations into remote areas while also contributing to a cleaner, more sustainable future.
