The VBOX Video HD2 High-Definition cameras (RLACS222KIT) consist of a single 6 m cable attached to each camera, and do not allow for extension cables due to the nature of the signal. The Video VBOX Pro Standard-Definition cameras (RLACS244KIT) allow for cable extensions so there is more flexibility to capture footage from several points-of-view.
Any cable damage to the SD camera kit could be easily replaced by replacing the extension cable whereas damage to the HD camera cables would require replacement of the entire camera assembly. The heavy duty accessories for the Rugged Video VBOX Standard-Definition system have been specifically designed at the request of VBOX Mining users to protect the equipment.
A modified Pelican case has been designed around the Video VBOX Pro and its ability to use bulkhead connectors to connect heavy duty VBOX cabling to the outside of the Pelican case. Some users have applied a similar approach to the VBOX Video HD2, but since inline connectors cannot be used, a simple hole and rubber grommet has been applied to the lightweight VBOX case to protect the VBOX Video HD2 in a mining environment.
