The Economical Solution for Remote Monitoring

Nuclear remote monitoring applications are never straightforward – an off-the-shelf network switching system simply does not provide the level of performance required in the extreme environment of a reactor. Let Diakont use our years of operating experience to guide you to a video system that works for you. We offer a large array of customization choices to ensure that you get the best value for your investment befitting the specific needs of your operation. 


Multisensory Monitoring Solutions, Simplified

Complete networked systems include cameras with pan/tilts and lights, operator stations, remote operator stations, and a master control station with archive recording. Additionally, our user-friendly interface allows access throughout the system within established workgroups (i.e. Fuel Handling, HP, etc.). Facilitating multisensory monitoring of real-time reactor conditions, cameras can be fitted with guidance, lighting, remote radiation level measurement, audio (in-air only), and remote temperature measurement sensors.


Proven Reliability

Diakont’s networked video systems are built around our rad-hardened tube cameras, utilized throughout the nuclear industry for decades. Compared to bulky shielded CCTV cameras, which can weigh upwards of 75 lbs., Diakont’s CCTV cameras are valued for their compact size and natural resilience to radiation. What’s more, one of their key characteristics is that they remain operational 24/7, even during accident scenarios, providing reliable and critical visual and other data to operators. And with over 500 of Diakont’s radiation-tolerant CCTV systems already deployed globally, you can rest easy knowing your new system is recognized as a trusted, quality monitoring solution in the industry worldwide. 

Avoid Unplanned Trips

New customers who install Diakont’s rugged CCTVs systems in their facilities learn what our existing customers have long known: over time, our remote monitoring solutions not only pay for themselves, but have huge cost-savings potential by providing oversight of major components, predicting equipment failures, and even remotely disproving fire alarms. Even just a few hours of reduced production or stoppage during an unplanned event can cost millions of dollars in lost revenue and impact your facility’s rating and reputation. Diakont’s industry-leading CCTV systems put this solution to avoidable unplanned trips directly at your fingertips.
