Intrinsically Safe, High-Resolution, Digital IP Camera
SeSys ATEX and IECEx certified digital IP CCTV cameras are designed to be compliant with international standards and facilitate remote monitoring in inhospitable, hazardous or explosive areas. Whether the camera is to help improve safety by reducing risk or to support remote monitoring of an area of interest cutting down on journeys, the range of high resolution certified ATEX and IECEx cameras from SeSys contain solutions for all hazardous applications.
Also known as intrinsically safe or explosion proof CCTV cameras, they reduce the dangers posed to personnel - and provide live video images that can be accessed via a web browser or the Control Centre software package, included with the camera, to allow inhospitable or inaccessible areas to be monitored from a safe distance.
SeSys ATEX and IECEx cameras provide clear, high resolution images for live monitoring and include integral storage to record any images for post processing or record keeping. Recording can be event driven (using motion light, or an external trigger for a sensor for example) and these events can also be used to generate alarms, sending images to alert users or ARCs (alarm receiving centres) of any activity.
Cameras are connected using PoE (Power over Ethernet), providing associated installation and maintenance cost savings and an installation that is flexible, reliable and safe.
Providing digital PTZ and optional day/night lens functionality, SeSys ATEX and IECEx camera have no moving parts; ensuring low power, low maintenance and a long lasting (high MTBF) camera system and the most cost effective solution.
For low light areas that require monitoring, the ATEX and IECEx cameras can be fitted with integrated LED lights and input triggers that can be switched on and off as required. LEDs provide a long lasting and low power solution, achieve maximum intensity very quickly, illuminating the area in front of the camera. The lights can switched on and off via the camera's web interface, and automatically switch off when they are no longer in use.
SeSys have added to their range of ATEX/IECEx range of certified cameras a new thermal model. Within a 316 stainless steel housing, the camera has powerful analytics to monitor movement as well as a temperature sensitive option that can be used to trigger an alarm based on the temperature of an area of interest. Particularly suited to perimeter monitoring and asset management, the certified thermal cameras support early warning alarms being raised for a wide range of applications.
Temperatures between -40C to +550C in increments of+/- 10C can be measured. This temperature sensitivity is also useful for detecting moving objects with the camera's built in analytics capable of tracking movement of an object and generating alarms accordingly.
Power consumption is an industry leading 6W and utilising standard PoE networking keeps installation and commissioning at a flexible and efficient level that can be quickly and cost effectively managed.
Events may be recorded via a trigger input into the camera. For example, the trigger may be from a process control instrument that activates the camera, sending an image to an email address or FTP server. An input barrier is used for compliance and safety. If the LED lighting unit is included, the lights will activate automatically to provide a clear image on the area of interest.
ATEX and IECEx certified IP CCTV cameras for gas and vapour environment in zone 1 and 2 and dust environments 21 and 22.
ATEX is a European standard and IECEx is recognised internationally in countries that include USA, Canada and Australia.
