IP-rated housing makes industrial cameras more versatile
21 March 2017
Industrial cameras need to be able to work in a number of different environments and some applications require special protection classes for the cameras.
Important for the selection of the suitable camera case are the environmental conditions, concerning splash water, dust and particles, as well as temperature and vibrations. When a system is used in a rough, industrial environment, it has to fulfill other requirements then when it is used in the clean room. For certain environments an extreme vibration and shakeproof is of importance. Other applications require a high temperature resistance.
The EyeProtect housing, from EVT, offers all-round protection for industrial cameras and allows them to achieve the desired protection class and type. The protection class (class I to III) is important because it specifies the protection against contact. The protection type (IP XX) specifies the protection against the infiltration of particulate material and liquids.
EyeProtect provides up to IP67 which means it is dust-proof and protects the camera if it gets submerged in water. The housing is available in three different diameters – in sizes S, M, L (available inner diameter from 29 mm up to 85 mm). Its length is be adjusted. The minimum size is 100mm and it can be extended in steps of 25mm which gives enough space house a wide variety of cameras.
It is also possible to select between M12 connectors and a PG cable gland for the connection between the camera inside and the connectors on the back of the housing, where it gets the power and network connection.
