Explosion-protected camera systems for hazardous areas

10 April 2017

R. STAHL has extended its range of explosion-protected camera systems for use in hazardous gas and dust environments.

The EC-940-PTZ series of explosion-proof Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras provide high definition (HD) images for video surveillance and process monitoring, particularly for use in harsh environments, where the presence of gases or flammable dust can create a potentially explosive atmosphere. Certified for use in Zone 1 and 2, Group IIC T6 (Gas) and in Zone 21 and 22, Group IIIC T85° (Dust), the cameras are suitable for a range of onshore and offshore applications, including oil and gas, marine, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

The Full HD, 1080p, 60fps (frames per second) cameras feature a 30x optical zoom, which enables accurate identification of small details within its field of vision, with the ability to transmit these images via Ethernet, H.264/AVC and MJPEG compression, with ONVIF Profile S compatibility, to other third-party products. 

The robust EC-940-PTZ camera unit is protected to IP66 rating to ensure a long operating life in temperatures from -40°C to +60°C. The camera also has a built-in wiper for the front glass, which is automatically actuated by movements of the camera, ensuring that images are always perfectly clear.

The ATEX/IECEx certified cameras are available as pre-wired options with armoured cable and barrier cable gland, simplifying installation. An analogue version of the EC-940-PTZ is also available.
