CCTV Cameras for Use in Explosion Risk Areas

SAMCON cameras are manufactured in such a way that no ignition spark can escape the camera housing (explosion proof camera housings). Thus the cameras can be used in explosion risk areas, such as 

  • Oil plants and gas plants (Onshore and Offshore)
  • Chemical Industry
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Refineries, fuel depots , pipelines and distribution stations
  • Security Surveillance
  • Power plants
  • Mines, Compost Plants/Waste Fills
  • Wastewater treatment plants and landfills
  • Port facilities and logistics hubs
  • Food processing and pharmaceutical plants
  • Rigs, biogas plants and silos

Samcon exproof cameras can be an alternative for the following brands, distributor and manufacturers: Avex CCTV, Axis XP40-Q1765, Bartec, Bosch Ex Series, Pixavi, Coex, Dexter Dex, Exsite, Hernis, Kongsberg, Maximus Mobotix, Olarco, Oxalis, Papenmeier, Pelco, SBE DHSR, Schrader Bergbau, Seatronics, Stahl EC, Sesys, Tecnovideo, Videotec Maximus.

Blast Proof and Rugged Cameras in Explosion Proof Housings: The ExCam Series

The ExCam Series consists of different video cameras that are approved for dust and gas explosion risk zones in accordance with the EU directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX).The ExCam Series is the world´s smallest explosion proof camera system in its class. The main advantage lies in the modular build up: various different housings and electronical parts make it easy to assemble explosion proof cameras that suit your particular needs. The ExCam Series consist of analogue cameras with variofocal lenses, motorzoom cameras with infrared cut filter and digital network cameras with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixel (FullHD).

Explosion Proof Camera Housings (Ex-Proof Camera Enclosures)

All our camera housings are explosion proof, designed with IP67 protection and resistant to seawater. Care for something lighter? ExCam cameras in an aluminum housing are perfectly suited for outdoor applications and have outstanding heat conduction properties when combined with the sun shade. Something refined? Try an ExCam in a stainless steel housing. Extremely refined and compact, the stainless steel housing is perfectly suited for applications in chemically aggressive environments.
