Dvtel deliver security system for South African Power Utility

Power Utility secured using DVTEL and Vingtor-Stentofon

The original security system wasn’t able to effectively cover the site’s perimeter, which stretched for more than seven kilometers.

The challenge

Remote areas of the site were surrounded by a zoned, full-height electrified fence that set off many false alarms. Due to the long response time and cumbersome handling of events within the remote areas, frequent unwanted false alarms were highly resource-intensive. Eskom needed a complete, reliable, and fully integrated solution that addressed the shortcomings of the existing system and provided better situational awareness of the entire site. 

Vingtor-Stentofon allows verification and respons to alarms

The solution also includes several technology integrations that further enhance andoptimize the security system. The Vingtor-Stentofon intercom integration allows the operator to visually verify the alarms and talk through the intercom via IP audio, achieving moreefficient handling and control of the incident and greater collaboration with theresponding staff.

Electrical fences driven by Moxa input devices tied into the DVTELsystem help provide better situational awareness of site entry points and furtherdecrease false alarms by combining data from sensors with video analytics alarm data.
