Temperature monitoring in hazardous areas can optimize operational efficiency

    Across a wide range of industrial processes, temperature is an indicator of machine or system health. While rising temperatures can indicate the potential for overheating, lower temperatures can signal a pressure leak. As a result, the ability to effectively monitor system temperature is an important contributor to optimizing operational efficiency. Most seriously, rapidly rising temperature … Continued

      Protecting the world’s data centers

      Data centers have become an intrinsic part of modern society.

        Protecting electrical substations with thermal technology

        Electrical substations frequently face challenges from a number of sources. These include vandals, intruders, hazardous weather, and high energy demand periods. On top of this, there’s the difficulty of the substations being unmanned and often remotely located. This makes them harder to protect from intrusion, theft, and sabotage. Substations are vulnerable points in the electricity … Continued

          Choosing the right explosion-protected camera

          Hazardous areas where flammable material such as gas or dust are liable to an increased risk of explosion are common in settings ranging from petrochemical plants through to food processing factories. Often, it’s essential or beneficial to use electrical equipment in these environments. This includes network cameras to ensure health and safety, security, and operational … Continued

            How to manage the changing cybersecurity landscape for critical infrastructure and industrial operations

            Consultants and specialists designing and implementing surveillance and security solutions for industry and critical infrastructure face unique pressures. The physical protection of such ‘essential entities’ (as regulation increasingly refers to them) is obviously paramount, but today they also face the need to support protection from attacks in the digital realm. In addition, a changing regulatory … Continued

              Explosion-protected cameras, explosion-proof cameras and flame-proof cameras. What’s the difference?

              We’ll admit it, the technology industry can be terrible for creating jargon which almost seems designed to confuse rather than bring clarity. In our area of the sector, a question we’re often asked is: “What’s the difference between an explosion-protected camera, an explosion-proof camera and a flame-proof camera?” In truth, the answer is: “Not very … Continued
