Video monitoring & surveillance is indispensible in any workplace. But different work conditions demand different types of equipment for security. In industries like oil & gas, energy, mining, nuclear power and construction, where employees and assets are constantly exposed to a range of hazardous threats, a traditional CCTV camera is not fit for the job. You need an advanced technology suitable to address the inherent challenges of the work environment. Explosion proof cameras or ex-proof CCTV systems are ideal for monitoring and increasing occupational safety in such hazard-prone work environment. There are a host of explosion proof cameras available in the market such as explosion proof fixed camera, explosion proof PTZ camera, explosion proof night view PTZ camera and more. Here’s how installing explosion proof camera at your work facility can help in improving occupational safety as well as productivity.
Rugged & reliable
Explosion proof cameras are built reliably with a very sturdy frame. These cameras do not give in to extreme weather conditions or work environment and help you keep a close eye on operations with consistent performance.
Ex-proof CCTV systems can be integrated with any mobile or computer device. This will enable you to monitor ongoing activities at the rig or plant no matter where you are, which in turn will contribute to productivity of operations and safety of employees.
Long range & night vision
These cameras come with an option of long range and crystal clear night vision view. This feature enables 24/7 monitoring of your facilities and ensures that your employees and assets are secured at all times.
Intrinsically safe cameras available in the market are oftentimes promoted as an alternative to explosion proof systems. But such intrinsically safe cameras are useful only to prevent short circuit and spark, whereas explosion proof cameras are marked for installation in Zone 0, Zone, 1, Zone 2 or other zones as specified to offer long-term and trouble free performance.
The most essential function of ex-proof systems is that they work effectively even in the unlikely event of fire or explosion. Being equipped with DVR unit for recording, the camera will ensure that you have footage of the incident which can later be used for analysis and training purposes, and also to resolve legal matters.
