|Bosch Extreme Environment Cameras are all-environment cameras for harsh weather applications
For Norwegian Cruise Line, it was difficult to find cameras that were able to withstand the type of extreme environments that their cruise ships found themselves in at times. “Our cruise ships must be able to withstand storms – when wind can go up to 125 miles per hour. And, we demand the same thing from the cameras that we install in the open deck areas,” explained Samir Kljajic, Fleet Surveillance Manager of NCL. “Not to mention residual salt and galvanic transfer related corrosions,” Mark White, General Manager of Empire Automation stated. “After years of developing anti-corrosion kits for various cameras, the end result was disappointingly the same – the cameras lasted less than two years. Norwegian Cruise Line needed cameras that would help them monitor their open decks day and night even in the harshest conditions.”
Bosch Extreme Environment Cameras get the job done even in the toughest environments
Mark White evaluated the Bosch cameras and discovered that the Bosch Extreme Environment cameras were able to meet NCL’s wind and corrosion resistance requirements.
“We have been installing EX14 Bosch Extreme Environment cameras for years now on NCL cruise ships, and we have had no issues with them. Product reliability is the reason why we come back the Bosch Extreme EX14 cameras project after project.”
Samir Kljajic cannot agree more: “Ever since we’ve bought the Bosch Extreme EX14 cameras, I haven’t considered anything else to monitor our cruise ships’ open decks. For our application, mainly monitoring open decks day and night, they are unbeatable.”
