Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting and equipment sectors, announced the release of an explosion proof network IP camera designed for observation in hazardous locations.
This camera is explosion proof, dust proof, ignition proof, weatherproof and tamper resistant providing operators with a live feed from inside tanks, reactors, vessels and more. This camera comes with built-in infrared and a 3-port junction box.
Explosion proof network IP camera
The EXPCMR-IP-POE-4MP-IR-FLX.23-JB.3.SFC explosion proof network IP camera is rated for use in Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups B, C and D; Class I, Zones 1 and 2, Groups IIB+H2 and IIA; Class II, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups E, F and G; Class III, Divisions 1 and 2 hazardous locations.
This camera features a built-in 1/3” progressive-scan CMOS image sensor that delivers up to 4.0MP resolution at 20 fps. This camera features a wide-angle lens with an 83-degree field of view to cover large areas.
This camera uses a true day/night IR-cut filter removal to produce clear images in low light conditions
Larson Electronics’ explosion proof network IP camera comes with built-in infrared and utilises 120dB true wide dynamic range and 3D digital noise reduction. This camera uses a true day/night IR-cut filter removal to produce clear images in low light conditions and automatically switches from full colour to IR mode when visible light falls below a certain level. Camera link-up is achieved via a customer-provided RJ45 ethernet cable that is run back to a customer-provided DVR system.
To record the stream from the camera a network video recorder (NVR) is required, but live-view is capable without any NVR system via remote access to the camera. A main stream and two sub streams are available for live viewing and each can be configured to different resolutions and frame rates. This camera can be mounted to ceilings and other surfaces or around corners from conduit runs.
This unit’s flex coupler is terminated inside an included explosion proof 3-port junction box. This unit comes with one pack of 3/4" EYM seal off and chico/fiber compound mixture for sealing the camera side of the flex coupler. Suitable applications include vessel, tank and reactor monitoring, remote observation of external facilities and more.
