Explosion-protected cameras

June 2019 Surveillance, Industrial (Industry), Products & Solutions

Axis Communications has announced the release and local availability of three new cameras in its ExCam XF range.

With a robust exterior in a lightweight finish, the three new cameras, namely the ExCam XF P1367 Explosion-Protected Network Camera, ExCam XF Q1645 Explosion-Protected Network Camera and ExCam XF Q1785.

“Industrial environments are some of the most important to have surveillance in, yet they remain the hardest to monitor because of the environmental conditions that can affect the quality of images and longevity of the cameras,” states Justin Ludik, business development manager, critical infrastructure at Axis Communications SA. “Mines, manufacturing plants, industrial factories all pose not only risks from the outside, but risks from the inside too. It is with this that the ExCam XF range has been developed to assist and address two key issues faced by industrial sites namely protecting operations and reducing health, safety and environmental risks.”

The cameras are able to withstand temperatures from -60°C to 60°C, and are made from robust materials, but are still light enough to ensure easy installation and management, even on high towers or buildings. All three cameras are also ATEX, IECEx, and EAC Ex, Zone 1, 2, 21, 22, IIC, IIIC certified, ensuring only the best in quality and safety. With built in Lightfinder and Forensic WDR technologies, users are assured of perfect balance in scenes with strong variations in light and they can be seamlessly integrated into your existing security system.

Each camera in the range supports a specific application.

ExCam XF P1367: Features an i-CS lens that allows the camera to automatically set its focus, and the field of view can be adjusted remotely. Additionally, it delivers excellent image quality and detail even in low light. It delivers 5-megapixel resolution at 25/30 fps in H.264.

ExCam XF Q1645: The camera is engineered for light sensitivity and delivers HDTV 1080p resolution at 100/120 fps (with WDR disabled). It also supports electronic image stabilisation (EIS), which greatly improves video quality where the camera is subject to vibrations. Further, it also features an i-CS lens to automatically set its focus, and the field of view can be adjusted remotely.

ExCam XF Q1785: The camera is designed for 24/7 long-range surveillance of vital operation, such as conveyor belts. This is delivered through 32x optical zoom, combined with HDTV 1080p resolution at 50/60 fps (with WDR disabled). Furthermore, it provides high resolution footage even under extreme lighting conditions, has barrel distortion correction for great image quality, even at the edges of the image, and supports electronic image stabilisation (EIS), which greatly improves video quality where the camera is subject to vibrations.
