Explosion-protected PTZ

October 2018 Editor's Choice, Surveillance, Products & Solutions

Axis Communications has added the ExCam XPT Q6055 Explosion-Protected PTZ Network Camera with low weight and profile, to simplify installation in hazardous environments.

The PoE-powered camera helps production managers to ensure operational efficiency, while also meeting all safety, security and environment regulations. ExCam enables real-time monitoring of the site and visual identification if an alarm has been triggered. The camera facilitates smarter decision-making for resource allocation and actions in case of an incident.

Designed for potentially hazardous environments, such as refineries, oil rigs, food processing and chemical plants, the camera is certified for use in explosion-prone environments according to international standards. The stainless-steel housing is certified to worldwide standards (ATEX, IECEx, EAC), protecting against corrosion in harsh outdoor environments, as well as preventing damage from water and dust. The broad temperature range allows it to be installed in arctic as well as desert conditions.

Image quality is not compromised by durability, as HDTV 1080p and 32X optical zoom offers superb zoomed-in views of people and objects of interest, as well as focus recall to ensure the image is instantly in focus to provide lightning fast monitoring across vast areas.

It can also easily be integrated with an existing surveillance system, offering savings on employing specialists to install the device. Furthermore, it weighs less than a traditional explosion-protected PTZ camera, making it easier to install and manage. This is particularly useful in situations like on oil rigs, where heavy winds present a challenge.

The power source, provided by the included AXIS T8154 60 W SFP Midspan, offers a long-distance fibre connection so it can be positioned in a dedicated junction box on the ground. This increases safety, reduces the possible points of failure, and makes troubleshooting any issues easier as it is more accessible to the technicians. Axis’ built-in analytics are also included to help security managers make smarter decisions.
