What is an explosion proof camera?

Explosion proof cameras are the equipment which are best suited for hazardo
us explosive areas. These cameras are designed to prevent ignition of the s
urrounding gases and dust in these environments. They either contain any ex
plosion within the device, or prevent sparks exiting the device and trigger
ing an explosion. This means that the camera system will not cause an explo
sion, however survive explosions outside the enclosure.
Explosive environments can be found in a number of places. Oil and Gas indu
stry is one among them. Since it involves a risky environment, your camera  
needs to be explosion proof. It holds the certain benefits:

? The Explosion proof cameras, especially the stainless steel model
s are the resilient explosion proof cameras. Their weather resistant stainl
ess steel casings have a rating of IP67, which makes them absolutely dust-t
ight and watertight.

? Despite their light weight and small dimensions, all cameras are  
designed using the ?pressure proof encapsulation? type of i
gnition protection; this means that products in pressurised enclosures need
 no additional monitoring equipment.

? Its minimum sensitivity of 0, 0004 makes the cameras so sensitive
 that it does not need powerful lighting technology. This means that in com
bination with a 50 watt headlamp, the cameras can replace comparable system
s with 400 watt xenon lights.

? To be considered as an explosive proof, the camera must meet the  
standards identified by ATEX or IECEx. ATEX was created to protect workers  
from explosive risks and provide common standards for all equipments traded
 within the EU. IECEx is an international standard. These standards define  
the type of environment and the protection level required by the equipment.

The different types of cameras and their benefits available for oil and gas
 industries are:

? Ex compact camera ? it is a small lightweight, modest and
 a compact camera which makes it easier to be installed in the smallest cor

? Ex AFZ Camera ? the Ex zoom camera offers day and night i

? Ex TIC Camera ? the IP69K protected thermal imaging camer
a allows surveillance without a light source.

All the cameras hold the benefit of Aluminum and stainless steel and are de
signed for extreme temperatures. These cameras are shock and vibrant resist
ant and are signed under the ATEX and IECEX certified zone.

With all this features in hand, you are sure to have continuity and capture
 details even in the most hazardous areas.
