This explosion-proof camera system is suitable for installation in hazardous environments, such as offshore rigs, oil pipelines and refineries, where a small spark can lead to an explosion. The camera’s enclosure is vacuum sealed and filled with inert gases, so even if a spark is generated within the camera’s enclosure, the inert gases will prevent the spark from triggering an explosion in the vicinity.
This system features a day/night camera with high resolution, a removable infrared-cut filter, and a 36x zoom lens (36x optical, 12x digital). The system’s electro-polished 316L stainless steel construction makes it suitable for all kinds of environmental conditions including marine applications.
The system has an operating temperature range from -76 to 140°F (-60 to 60°C). Two hours after being powered up, the entire unit can de-ice and be operational from a temperature of -13°F (-25°C). A built-in heater, window defroster/defogger, sun shroud, and blower are standard features of the system. The unit also includes 3 auxiliary output relays that can be configured for a variety of uses.
The 36x Day/Night Explosion-Proof camera also includes a window wiper, which is completely integrated into the enclosure and does not interfere with the viewing range of the system. The wiper can be configured to delay between wipes and to automatically shut off after a specified period.
The system’s variable pan and tilt speeds range from 0.1 to 40°/sec in manual pan, tilt, and preset modes. The tilt range allows for horizontal viewing of -90 to +90°. There are 80 preset positions with a preset accuracy of ±0.1°. The camera is also capable of 360° continuous pan rotation. The system comes with a power source of 24VAC. The power-up recovery mode of the camera allows the user to specify what operation the system will resume whenever power is cycled.
The system features built-in system memory in the power module to store camera- and location-specific pan/tilt settings including labels, presets, patterns, and zones. These settings are automatically downloaded if a new pan and tilt body is installed.
