Baxall monitors pharmaceutical plant

August 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Baxall has had its CDSP9000 cameras and Pyramid matrix installed at the new Pfizer OSP4 drug manufacturing plant in Southern Ireland.

40 Baxall CDSP9000 0,5" colour cameras have been fitted throughout OSP4 (organic synthesis plant 4) for process monitoring, safety and security purposes. These digital signal processing cameras provide clear images across a wide range of illumination conditions due to their high resolution and four-colour balance mode.

Most of the CDSP9000 cameras are installed in flameproof 'EExd' camera and flameproof 'EExd' telemetry housings, due to the presence of flammable gases.

The cameras are controlled via a Baxall Pyramid matrix switching system, which has the capacity to take 144 cameras in and 32 monitors out, although 18 monitors are currently being used. Five Baxall keyboards are installed in the control room to control the matrix.

In addition, six Baxall CDSP9713 cameras and two domes controlled by Baxall Dax dome convertors have been installed in the carpark. These are operated via a Baxall ZMXPlus CT32M4 multiplexer.
