SeSys will also demonstrate its MOBOTIX core based ATEX and IECEx certified cameras at Security Essen 2014 MOBOTIX AG, a leading manufacturer of digital high-resolution, network-based video security systems has announced that SeSys, an Advanced Partner has shipped its 500th ATEX / IECEx digital IP CCTV camera based on a modified MOBOTIX core within a unique design certified for use within inhospitable, hazardous or explosive areas. The SeSys ATEX and IECEx certified models offer high resolution images for live monitoring and can include integral storage to record any images for post processing or record keeping. Recording can be event driven based on motion, light, or an external trigger for example a temperature or water vapour sensor. Events can also generate alarms, sending images to alert users or alarm receiving centres of any activity. All units have been validated by Sira, the UK’s leading Notified Body for Ex Product Certification across both the ATEX and IECEx standards. The cameras are certified for ATEX zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 as well as IP66 rated and an optional IP67 rating. The SeSys models utilise core MOBOTIX features such as Power-over-Ethernet, no moving parts and decentralised connectivity which allows the cameras to be quickly installed and integrated into existing environments. The SeSys models utilisecore MOBOTIX featuressuch as Power-over-Ethernet,no moving parts anddecentralised connectivity “Our ATEX cameras have proven popular with defence equipment manufacturers and contractors due to their small size and extremely high levels of reliability,” explains Dan Eames, Technical Director for SeSys, “With no moving parts and a purely digital PTZ function, cameras do not need servicing once deployed – in fact some of our original units deployed in 2008 have run continually without requiring any maintenance which can be an expensive process requiring production lines to be suspended.” The cameras are used for both security and manufacturing control processes. For example, in one installation, ATEX cameras are used to display the lights and dials on a remotely operated piece of equipment in a high risk area. “In that installation, a particular set of lights turning on will generate an alert to staff in the control room,” says Eames. According to Eames, at half the cost and a third of the size of legacy analogue ATEX certified units, SeSys has experienced strong demand for its cameras and will be demonstrating the units at the upcoming Security Essen 2014 event. Dominic Chapman, UK country manager for MOBOTIX, added, “We actively encourage our partners to build on our technology and develop new use cases and we applaud the technical evolution that SeSys has shown in establishing itself as an innovator in this exciting sector of the market.”

The relocation will provide the UK operation with more demonstration, meeting and parking space Mobotix AG, a leading manufacturer of digital high-resolution, network-based video security systems will move its UK headquarters to new offices in Stockley Park, near Heathrow. The relocation will provide the UK operation with more demonstration, meeting and parking space and will also be available to partners for customer engagement and training sessions. "Although our Gherkin office has proven popular, some of the feedback from partners suggested that a larger space, a more nationally accessible office with easier parking would be appreciated,” explains Dominic Chapman, UK Country manager for MOBOTIX, “Our move to Stockley Park benefits from good national and international transport links and we now have enough space to accommodate two separate groups on site simultaneously with access to a dedicated meeting room and full audio/video presentation capability.” Stockley Park is ideally situated just 15 miles west of London and two miles north of Heathrow Airport. The Park enjoys some of the best communication links in the south east, located adjacent to the M4, only two miles from the M25, with good rail connections to central London and the Thames Valley.
