Bosch Security Systems, Inc. introduces the Extreme Series Camera EX65 model Explosion Protected. This high-performance, affordable camera holds international explosion protected certifications to provide safe surveillance for hazardous locations, including oil and gas, petrochemical and chemical facilities.
Designed for extreme environment operation, the Extreme Series Camera EX65 model's electropolished 316L stainless steel construction protects the camera from corrosion by reducing the risk of imbedded contamination - making it ideal for offshore applications. The Extreme Series Camera EX65 model is also available in anodized aluminium for onshore environments, with both housings providing NEMA 4X and IP67 ratings to safeguard the equipment from harsh weather conditions. The camera can withstand temperatures from -58 degrees to 140 degrees Fahrenheit with a heater that activates at low temperatures to resist ice build-up and a sunshield for reliable operation in the hottest desert settings.
Featuring powerful Dinion 2X Day/Night technology, the Extreme Series Camera EX65 model delivers uncompromising surveillance in all lighting conditions for these critical sites. Bosch's Dinion 2X Day/Night cameras provide 20-bit image processing and an extended dynamic range to reveal more than is visible with the human eye alone. The cameras also feature Smart Backlight Compensation to optimize light levels for objects of interest in areas with a bright background. Providing the most detailed view of scenes with difficult lighting helps customers achieve accurate video verification, faster response times and safer facilities.
An available explosion protected infrared illuminator, supplied separately, further enhances around-the-clock surveillance by delivering clear images even in complete darkness. Bosch illuminators feature Constant Light technology to deliver a consistent level of lighting performance throughout the life of the product. Powered by a microprocessor, this advanced technology automatically controls and adjusts light output to compensate for the degradation that naturally occurs with all LED illuminators. In addition, 3D Diffuser technology provides even illumination across the entire scene, eliminating hotspots and underexposed backgrounds. Adding infrared illumination with the Extreme Series Camera EX65 model helps critical sites reduce costs by eliminating the need for conventional high-voltage lighting.
The Extreme Series Camera EX65 model has an integrated junction box, a one-piece design and multiple mounting options that make installation fast and easy. With support for Bosch's Bilinx communication, the Extreme Series Camera EX65 model also allows customers to remotely configure and control the camera without additional cabling.
