Digitale Network Camera

The MEKRA platform camera is based on a high-quality modular development platform that allows individual and customized solutions, specially adapted to the customer's wishes, to be realized in one camera.

The camera is recommended for use in agricultural and construction machinery, forklifts, buses, recreational vehicles, vans, trucks, fire trucks and municipal vehicles, among others. Due to the camera's modular design, it can be adapted to the respective vehicle type in a time- and cost-efficient manner.

The camera is characterized by its particularly robust housing, which makes it ideally suited for use in harsh environmental conditions. In addition, it can be used in all weather conditions thanks to a particularly powerful integrated heater that defrosts the lens within a few minutes.


The netwerk camera uses the SOME/IP protocol (ISO 17215 standard) for communication with the vehicle's control unit. This is done either via 100Base-T1 (BroadR-Reach) or 100Base-TX (Fast Ethernet).
For the integration into your system we offer an open source interface.
