Explosion-protected bullet camera

Issue 2/3 2023 Surveillance, Mining (Industry), Products & Solutions

The AXIS P1468-XLE Explosion-Protected Bullet Camera is the world’s first explosion-protected camera specifically designed for Zone and Division 2 hazardous locations. The camera is designed for Zone 2, 22 and Class I/II/III Division 2, according to international standards (ATEX, IECEx, NEC). The device uses the ‘Ex e’ protection method, an explosion-protection approach referred to as ‘increased safety’ or ‘non-incendive’.

This method ensures that no arcs and sparks can appear, and that excessive temperatures cannot be reached, during normal operation of electrical equipment. As a result, electrical equipment using ‘Ex e’ protection cannot ignite gas or dust in the surrounding potentially combustible environment.

AXIS P1468-XLE is a robust, impact- and weather-resistant fixed camera, which delivers excellent image quality in 4K resolution under any light conditions, through Lightfinder 2.0, Forensic WDR, and OptimizedIR. Compact and lightweight in design, the camera is as easy to install as a standard camera. By design, the camera is unable to provide sufficient energy to ignite gas or dust in the atmosphere to cause an explosion, therefore removing the need for any traditional explosion-protected enclosure.

The multitasking camera provides many benefits within health and safety applications and operational efficiency. Early detection of smoke and fire, ensuring that personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn and used, and monitoring restricted areas bring significant health and safety benefits to organisations. In operational efficiency, the camera can be used for visual verification of various processes and as part of an advanced data-driven sensory network.

Built on ARTPEC-8, AXIS P1468-XLE includes a deep learning processing unit (DLPU) enabling advanced features and powerful analytics that run on the edge. In addition, it is possible to extract and send metadata for further analysis, which can be used for trend monitoring and predictive maintenance. Built-in cybersecurity features help prevent unauthorized access and safeguard the system.
