The combination solution: Ex-certified high-performance camera and Ex light

The ExCam IPM1137-LE combines the two devices camera and light in one. It is the ideal solution for low-light areas. A high image quality is of crucial importance in order to clearly capture a process and to be able to clearly identify the persons or objects involved. In order to optimize the performance of the camera in difficult lighting conditions (up to absolute darkness), the lighting and camera of the ExCam IPM1137-LE are optimally coordinated and the light can be easily switched via the camera.

The camera: 5 MP resolution meets a powerful remote zoom variofocus lens and MLPU

The ExCam IPM1137 is a cost effective megapixel network camera, particularly suitable for use in hazardous areas. Besides 5 MP resolution (2592 x 1944) it offers a powerful remote zoom variofocus lens and a Machine Learning Processing Unit (MLPU) . It is approved according to Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX), IECEx and EAC-Ex. These and other available approvals can be found in the download area.

The world's smallest LED spotlight for hazardous areas: liteServer Ex.micro

The liteServer Ex.micro is the perfect addition to our cameras in dimly lit areas. It has a built-in, energy-efficient, long-life LED. This is optionally white or infrared. IR lighting (wavelength 855nm) enables unobtrusive surveillance even in total darkness. The lighting series is approved in accordance with Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX) and IECEx.

Explosion-proof IP camera with ATEX, IECEx and EAC-Ex approval

The ExCam series is certified within the framework of the European (ATEX) as well as the international directive ( IECEx ). The explosion-proof housing is approved for ATEX group II for zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 including explosion groups IIC / IIIC. Furthermore, it now also has the EAC-Ex approval.

During the development of the ExCam IPM1137-LE, great importance was attached to safety, mechanical precision and high-quality stainless steel. In addition, a modular structure was at the forefront of the development. With regard to the technical characteristics, we have gone to the limits of what is feasible: In areas such as media resistance and ambient temperature, we are setting standards with the ExCam series.

Outstanding images as a basis for reliable analysis

A high image quality is of crucial importance in order to clearly capture a process and to be able to clearly identify the persons or objects involved. The highest image quality is the prerequisite for reliable analysis. Thanks to its resolution of 1944 p at 30 frames per second and thanks to Lightfinder and WDR, the ExCam IPM1137-LE provides a reliable basis for powerful analysis functions.

Remote zoom & vario focus

The ExCam IPM1137-LE offers a powerful remote zoom variofocus lens. Thanks to this you can control zoom remote.

Lightfinder and Forensic WDR

Lightfinder and WDR are responsible for good image quality despite weak light. Lightfinder ensures realistic and saturated colors even of moving objects even in low light. Forensic WDR compensates for differences in brightness in a scene, i.e. sharp images despite a high-contrast scene.

Artificial intelligence and camera? Clear!

Cameras have long ceased to be used for purely imaging surveillance. Due to the constantly improving processors and the associated performance of the cameras, the decentralized task of image evaluation can now also be carried out directly on the camera - so-called on-edge solutions. The advantage of this camera-based evaluation is above all a lower bandwidth usage, since the actual analysis is carried out from the raw data on the camera and only metadata has to be passed on. This means that events can be reacted to almost in real time. For more on this topic, see our technical report on artificial intelligence in camera systems.

Deep - and Machine learning makes it possible

Video motion detection has long made it possible to detect people or vehicles in certain areas. However, the error rate, eg due to shadows or objects, was relatively high and the detected movement could not be classified. With the technology of the ExCam IPM1137-LE (intelligent algorithms and machine learning processor unit) it is possible to distinguish between a person and a car in the image. The object analysis even goes so far that a distinction can be made between cars, trucks and motorcycles. Object analysis is interesting, for example, where the access of a person to a danger area in which a machine is moving is to be recognized and reported. This is where completely new possibilities arise.

Powerful analysis functions

The ExCam IPM1137-LE has a MLPU. This integrated MLPU opens up the possibility for analysis functions, such as differentiated object classification. It can reliably detect different objects and differentiates, for example, between a moped, a car, a truck or a person. It also supports third-party AI applications.

Media resistance and seals

The ExCam series is resistant to a large number of media!
The specially designed GYLON flat seals (PTFE) not only make the camera waterproof (IP68), but also resistant to a large number of chemicals. The extremely robust, scratch- and impact-resistant borosilicate glass of the windscreen fits seamlessly into the list of high-quality materials.


The limit values of the ExCam IPM1137-LE are between -30°C and +50°C.

Minimum installation effort & Power over Ethernet ( PoE )

Thanks to Power over Ethernet ( PoE ), data and power supply can be routed in one cable. This means that only a PoE switch or a PoE midspan is required for the connection in the safe area . The cameras are supplied with power via Power over Ethernet ( PoE according to IEEE 802.3af) via the network, eliminating the need for a costly installation of a separate power supply line. The ExCam IPM1137-LE delivers several different video streams simultaneously and supports H.264, H.265 and MJPG.

Day/night functionality

The ExCam IPM1137-LE is equipped with a day/night function. This makes them particularly suitable for use in outdoor or indoor areas with poor lighting. When brightness falls below a certain level, the camera automatically switches to night mode to produce high-quality black and white images using near-infrared light. Near-infrared light, which is between 780 and around 1000 nanometers, cannot be perceived by the human eye, or only to a limited extent . The image sensor of the ExCam IPM1137-LE can recognize and use this light. The infrared cut filter is automatically detachable.

Local Recording Storage & Edge Storage

The ExCam IPM1137-LE has a microSD / microSDHC / microSDXC slot for memory cards (card not included), which means that every camera has an integrated recording memory. In addition, the camera supports active recordings in a NAS (Network Attached Storage).
