The new Ex-proof enclosure of the IRCamSafe-Series enable you to install infrared cameras in explosion-hazard environments. The enclosure complies with the latest explosion protection standards and they are certified for a wide selection of infrared cameras.

The IRCamSafeEX is ATEX certified and allows you to install temperature measuring IR cameras in the Ex-protection zones 1,2, 21 and 22. The certification comprises the whole systems which includes the enclosure with all its integrated components like infrared camera, heater and interface controller. This means the installer/user requires no additional certification for the operation of the above mentioned camera models.

This makes the IRCamSafeEx indispensable for any early fire detection or condition monitoring application in explosion-hazard areas of industrial plants.

The enclosure comes with an integrated controller which is equipped with 2 LWL- and 2 Ethernet connections. This enables a flexible network integration in star topology and ring topology. Furthermore, the integrated controller features several digital I/O channels and sensors for temperature, humidity and pressure. Among other functions, the I/O channels enable the user to switch on/off the camera and the heater via remote control. The access is accomplished through an integrated web interface or Modbus TCP/IP. IRCamSafe Ex-AXB/C is also supplied with a heater which effectively prevents fogging and freezing of the protection window.
