The cameras feature stainless steel housings and offer amongst others full HDTV resolution image quality. They are ideally suited for video surveillance monitoring of onshore, offshore, marine, and heavy industrial environments, such as the oil and gas industry, as well as dusty environments, such as paper and textile industries.
“With the new explosion protected network cameras we are offering plant managers in the oil, gas, chemical processing, paper and textile industries a powerful video surveillance monitoring solution for hazardous areas,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “In addition, Axis’ broad safe area product portfolio complements these two new cameras, opening for new installations in new markets. We have partnered with Oxalis,a member of Eaton Corp., combining our profound knowledge of digital network systems with the expertise in explosion protection of Oxalis Group Ltd.”
The cameras are designed not to cause an explosion. Their housings prevent any inside spark or explosion from escaping and igniting gases or dust in the surrounding air. The cameras can also be equipped with certified, explosion protected accessories, such as wall mounts, pole top brackets and a pressurized washer tank.
They provide superb image quality and color fidelity, as well as a high level of flexible integration with other equipment, such as access control and fire alarms. They offer flexible remote accessibility, using any existing IP-based networks. XP40-Q1765 also offers continuous 360° pan-tilt.
The cameras are supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program, and AXIS Camera Station. The cameras also include support for AXIS Camera Application Platform and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities.
XF40-Q1765 and XP40-Q1765 for hazardous areas complement Axis’ wide range of network cameras for use in safe areas. The explosion protected network cameras and their accessories are planned to be available in Q4, 2015 through Axis distribution channels.
