Dutch global supplier of advanced video surveillance solutions, Siqura, launched its next generation “ExPLORE” range CCTV systems on 10 November 2015. An improved range of state-of-the-art video surveillance solutions, these systems are explosion protected and perform safely and reliably in harsh environment. The range of analogue, IP and thermal cameras, provides everything needed to successfully monitor all kinds of CCTV projects no matter how complex, both onshore and offshore, in the Marine, Oil and Gas industry.
Next generation cameras for harsh conditions
The advanced ExPLORE 2.0 range features electro-polished, highly corrosion resistant 316L stainless steel, ideal for offshore locations. The range is complete with models equipped with thermal imagers that provide vision at night and in difficult lighting conditions.
The improved electronics have increased the reliability of the entire system and offer more and easier integration features:
- The operating temperature is increased to 60°C with peak temperatures up to 75°C.;
- All PTZ and fixed cameras can be selected with integrated analogue, IP over fibre or IP over coax;
- Combined with integrated 24 Vac, 115 Vac and 230 Vac power options, installation is made easier and cost-efficient without the need for additional, expensive Ex-d enclosures;
- Mounting accessories, washer tanks and conduit cables are manufactured to the same standards of ruggedness and durability.
During the facility’s lifetime, these adaptable systems can handle a multitude of operational situations, such as new or larger operations. The open CCTV architecture enables migration from present CCTV systems to next generation IP-based solutions. From many (remote) locations, via multiple video streams in various qualities and formats, these systems enable remote monitoring of a large number of onshore and offshore installations. They provide simultaneous monitoring, high quality evidential recording, long-term recording and surveillance of operators with mobile devices.
Roger Decker, Managing Director: “We listened to our customers and implemented their requirements in our next generation and safe area range of ExPLORE; enabling us to fully meet the requirements of the challenging world of marine, oil and gas.”
Siqura’s mission is to enable the operator to make the right decisions in critical situations that could lead to disruption or even environmental disaster. These innovative and high quality products offer operators peace of mind, contributing to personnel safety and protection of property.
