New line of explosion protected cameras from Axis

Lund, Sweden

The new explosion protected network cameras have been designed to address two key issues faced by industrial sites: protecting operations and reducing health, safety and environmental risks.

Three new cameras from the Axis Communications Excam XF range are designed to provide superior protection while also protecting the reliability of a business’ operations and employee safety. With the new cameras’ analytic capabilities, businesses can also make smart decisions about security operations and resource allocation.

The new range of cameras, Excam XF P1367 explosion-protected network camera; Excam XF Q1645 explosion-protected network camera; and Excam XF Q1785 explosion-protected network camera, have been designed to address two key issues faced by industrial sites: protecting operations and reducing health, safety and environmental risks. The cost savings achieved by the improved operational efficiency and lack of accidents that can be achieved with the cameras’ features provides tangible return on investment.

When a sensor is triggered, the fixed box explosion-protected cameras let operators visually verify safety information from the system, or monitor the process, to ensure operations remain running smoothly and personnel are able to work safely.

Key feature benefits for all three cameras include ATEX, IECEx, and EAC Ex, Zone 1, 2, 21, 22, IIC, IIIC certified; temperature ranges between -76 °F to 140 °F (-60 °C to 60 °C); Lightfinder and Forensic WDR technologies to ensure effective balance in scenes with strong variations in light.

The new cameras have been designed for easy and cost-efficient installation with PoE and they are low weight, making installation and management easier even on high towers or buildings. 

Engineered to integrate into existing systems, each camera has been designed to address specific use cases, for example the 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. This makes it ideal for detecting unauthorised individuals, monitoring employee safety in hazardous areas, monitoring production efficiency and verifying information from sensor systems.

The Excam XF Q1645 model is engineered for projects where light sensitivity is key and it 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. As such, it gives operators reliable real-time information about the status of the industry processes, such as monitoring temperature gauges, sensors and/or valves in the industry.

Finally, the Excam XF Q1785 has been designed for 24/7 long-range surveillance of vital operations, such as conveyor belts. This is delivered through 32x optical zoom, combined with HDTV 1080p resolution at 50/60 fps (with WDR disabled), which provides effective zoomed-in views of people and objects of interest. 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.
