Introduced at Traffex 2005, the Spike+ is a next generation enforcement camera with wireless operation.

The camera has a local storage capacity of 75,000 vehicle number plates that are encrypted using industry standard technologies. The camera itself can be controlled remotely via a web server software package that also allows live images to be displayed.

The Spike+ itself uses a monochrome CCD (Charged Coupled Device) surrounded by a ring of infrared LED’s. These capture the vehicle number plates and with a combined colour camera contextual images can also be recorded. The small size of the camera unit makes it easy and fast to install on site, and ideal for covert operations.

Paul Negus, Managing Director of PIPS Technology who developed the camera said:

“PIPS is able to supply complete ANPR and enforcement solutions; camera and software are fully integrated in a single enclosure. Spike+ is a further step forward in ANPR combined with enforcement.”
