Lightweight, explosion-protected camera for great video quality in hazardous areas

17 January, 2020
Axis Communications has launched a new stainless steel camera with ATEX/IECEx/EAC Ex/IA/PESO certifications for use in potentially combustible zones. Ideal for indoor processing plants, this lightweight and robust camera offers a wide field-of-view and delivers great 3 MP image quality at up to 30 fps.

ExCam XF M3016 weighs just 3 kgs so it’s easy to install with only one person. And, unlike some larger cameras, this compact fixed box camera, can easily fit wherever you need it. It’s powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) and includes a pre-connected 5 m (16 ft) non-armored cable. Additionally, with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) it ensures clarity even when there are both dark and light areas in the scene.

It includes AXIS Camera Application Platform and because it’s based on open standards, it supports a wide range of 3rd party analytics so it’s possible to add analytics and other applications to meet specific security and business requirements.

Key features include:

  • 3 MP at 30 fps, wide field-of-view, WDR
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Powered by PoE with non-armored cable
  • ATEX, IECEx, EAC Ex, IA and PESO
  • Zones 1, 2, 21, 22; Groups IIC, IIIC

This product offers Axis Zipstream with support for H.264 and H.265 which significantly lowers bandwidth and storage requirements by 50% or more without compromising image quality.
