IDEAL Showcases Network Testers and Supplies at 2013 ISC West Exposition

SYCAMORE, IL, March 13, 2013 – As part of an initiative to expand its presence in the video surveillance market, IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. today announced it will attend the International Security Conference & Expo (ISC West) held at the Las Vegas Sands Convention Center, April 10-12, 2013. IDEAL will be showcasing a series of product innovations designed to help security professionals boost productivity and profitability as they transition their customers from analog to IP-based video systems.

A pillar in the electrical industry for nearly 100 years, IDEAL is now offering the tools security professionals need to stay competitive in the fast-changing $5 billion video surveillance marketplace. However, rather than focus on cameras, storage or other hardware, IDEAL has leveraged its expertise in the electrical sector to engineer the hand tools, connectors and supplies used to build the cabling backbone, along with high-end testing solutions that assure the highest network availability.


As IP video continues to play an expanding role in the future of video surveillance, there has arisen a need for affordable, simple-to-use testers to troubleshoot the networks hosting IP cameras and servers. IDEAL has stepped up with a suite of advanced solutions such as the new SecuriTEST™ PRO CCTV/Security Tester that allows a single contractor to test, aim, focus and program cameras. In addition, there is the new LanXPLORER™ Gigabit Ethernet Network Analyzer with PoE and PoE+ testing, a capability welcomed by IT administrators who's networks are increasingly hosting IP cameras utilizing PoE (Power over Ethernet) as a power source.


According to IPVM research, there are an estimated 100 million surveillance cameras deployed worldwide, each requiring reliable connectivity to operate. IDEAL is a leading supplier of the RJ45 and BNC connectors used to connect cameras to surveillance networks, plus the cable cutters, wire strippers, crimpers and compression tools contractors need to securely terminate coaxial, fiber optic or twisted pair wiring. Its newest addition is the RF Coax Crimp & Compression Kit, a collection of essential crimping and compression tools targeted at facilities that maintain their own CCTV systems.

IDEAL will be displaying these and many more innovative products in ISC booth 7128. To learn more visit www.idealindustries.com.
