Axis Explosion-Protected Cameras Enable Agile Incident Management
Axis Communications launches three new explosion-protected cameras for use in sensitive industrial areas: XF40-Q2901 Explosion-Protected Temperature Alarm Camera, XF60-Q2901 Explosion-Protected Temperature Alarm Camera and XP40-Q1942 Explosion-Protected PT Thermal Network Camera. The cameras allow plant operators to monitor remote, inaccessible and sensitive areas, allowing for rapid incident response and protection of employees, machinery and critical industrial infrastructure, according to the company. Based on industry standards and open protocols, and protected in heavy-duty enclosure, the new cameras integrate with existing supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) architectures, complementing with thermal technology.
Typical industrial applications for the fixed XF40-Q2901/XF60-Q2901 Explosion-Protected Temperature Alarm Cameras include control and detection of temperatures of equipment and leaks in pipes, fire detection and monitoring of equipment and perimeter protection. They help visually inspecting and verifying functions and processes are running correctly, and providing remote assistance with planned maintenance.
Typical applications for the pan/tilt XP40-Q1942 Explosion-Protected PT Thermal Network Camera include detection of people in restricted areas and safety of personnel in hazardous areas. XP40-Q1942 supports electronic image stabilization, which reportedly improves video quality in situations where a camera is subject to vibrations, and Zipstream technologies, which lower the bandwidth and storage requirements.
Axis explosion-protected thermal cameras and temperature alarm cameras offer worldwide certifications, meaning that the cameras are compliant with specific country regulations across the globe, according to the company.
