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 thermal imagers in the Explosion protection zones 1,2, 21 and 22 and Division 2 according to NEC. 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.
