November 7, 2023
If you’re dealing with hazardous situations in your line of work, then you know the importance of security! Cameras will definitely make up a large part of your security protocols but know that these can kick start the fire when in close interaction with the flammable substance.
Well, unless these are explosion-proof cameras from SharpEagle! And you’ve guessed it, they are completely explosion-proof and ATEX certified, able to work in all zone 2, 1, 22, and the zone 21. Our cameras have an IP rating of 68, making them virtually indestructible.
So what products do we have for your wider view of what went wrong? Let’s get right into it.
What Is An Explosion Proof Camera?
Explosion-proof cameras are a type of camera designed to resist the effects of explosions in hazardous environments. These cameras come with a variety of safety features such as pressure ratings, gas classes, and flameproofing. They often include higher quality seals than regular cameras and are certified for use in areas prone to explosions due to combustible gases or dust.
An explosion proof camera will allow you to see what started the explosion and enable you to analyze the situation, but won’t be at fault for the explosion.
Working environments like chemical manufacturing sites, oil and gas facilities, transportation terminals, or even border defense need these devices that will be sturdy and resistant if a deadly event happens!
The ATEX-certified camera by SharpEagle is designed to be used in specific hazardous situations, as its enclosures are designed to keep any sparks from within the camera to interact with a flammable source and cause a fire or explosion.
This is exactly why SharpEagles’ cameras are the most reliable safety partner, as they are:
Manageable from distance
Enclosed in the highest degree of steel
Water and fire resistant
Offer IR vision
Internationally certified and tested
Benefits of Explosion-proof Cameras
Explosion-proof cameras have become a common tool for businesses in a wide variety of industries. The technology has enabled companies to develop and implement safety protocols, assess hazardous areas, and perform surveillance all in one. Explosion proof cameras by SharpEagle are designed to reduce risks by providing immunity from any explosions that occur in the vicinity.
This makes them extremely useful for businesses operating in hazardous or volatile environments, greatly reducing the risk of damage or injury to personnel and equipment. Additionally, these cameras provide businesses with high-quality visuals which can be very useful for process control, performance monitoring, and improving operational efficiency through better visibility into production sites.
The benefits of explosion-proof cameras extend beyond safety alone, giving businesses an effective security solution while also providing improved visibility and higher efficiencies across their operations.
Mini IR Camera
A perfect tiny camera that will shoot wide angles in both outdoor and indoor settings. The smallest camera on offer at Sharp Eagle, but ATEX certified in all hazardous zones — being bulletproof shock resistant, and extreme heat and cold resistant! Included is a night vision capacity at 2 and 5 MPx.
Explosion-Proof Compact Camera
The diameter of this camera is only 55 millimeters, yet it’s protected by a chemically hardened lens with a stainless steel housing of the highest quality, making it literally impenetrable. Despite its robust and rugged design, this one is only 436 grams but will withstand the harshest of conditions!
An infrared camera by Sharp Eagle is a small giant with a PTZ or Pan Tilt Zoom option, and a temperature resistance range of -30C to 70C. Its infrared capability allows it to catch everything even in the darkest situations. Nothing will be able to evade this one!
Fixed Dome Camera
Fixed-type camera with movable lens is made of stainless steel — this encasing will trap any sparks within it ensuring that this one isn’t a cause for the explosion. The dome camera is durable when it comes to corrosion, water, shock, and even bullets! Just like the IR camera, this one also comes with a night vision option.
Explosion Proof Zoom IR Camera
This stainless-steel camera comes is equipped with a universal joint bracket for ease of installation. It’s waterproof and shock resistant, and also comes in both IP and Analogue versions. As soon as this wide-area camera spots limited visibility movement it instantly jolts into infrared zoom mode!
Choosing the right camera for your hazardous environment is important—not only for safety reasons but also because it will help ensure that you get the best possible performance out of your camera system. These environments demand equipment that won’t fail you and won’t on itself be a cause for any fire or explosion! At SharpEagle we offer a wide range of explosion-proof products designed specifically for use in hazardous environments.
An explosion-proof camera is a specialized device designed to operate safely in hazardous environments where there is a risk of explosions. It is engineered to contain any sparks or flames within its enclosure to prevent ignition of flammable gases or dust in the surrounding atmosphere.
What does ATEX certification mean for explosion-proof cameras?
ATEX certification indicates that the explosion-proof cameras have been tested and approved for safe operation in explosive atmospheres according to the directives of the European Union. This certification is a recognized standard in ensuring equipment safety in potentially explosive environments.
In which hazardous zones can SharpEagle's explosion-proof cameras be used?
