Critical national infrastructure

Axis launches explosion-protected temperature alarm cameras: XF40-Q2901, XF60-Q2901 and XP40-Q1942

AXIS XF60-Q2901

Axis Communications has launched three explosion-protected, temperature alarm and thermal network cameras for sensitive industrial areas: the XF40-Q2901, XF60-Q2901 and XP40-Q1942.

Sectors/verticals

Operators of industrial plants can monitor remote, inaccessible and sensitive areas for rapid incident response and protection of employees, machinery and critical industrial infrastructure.

Features

Fixed XF40-Q2901/XF60-Q2901 explosion-protected temperature alarm cameras

  • Control and detect temperatures of equipment
  • Identify pipe leaks
  • Detect fire
  • Monitor equipment
  • Perimeter protection
  • Visually inspect and verify functions and processes are running correctly
  • Provide remote assistance with planned maintenance

Pan/tilt XP40-Q1942 explosion-protected PT thermal network camera

  • Detection of people in restricted areas and safety of personnel in hazardous areas
  • Supports Electronic image stabilization, which greatly improves video quality in situations where a camera is subject to vibrations, providing smooth and comfortable live viewing
  • Supports Axis Zipstream technology, which lowers bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising thermal imaging.

Integration

Based on industry standards and open protocols, and protected in heavy-duty enclosure, the new cameras seamlessly integrate with existing Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) architectures, complementing with thermal technology.

Compliance

Axis explosion-protected thermal cameras and temperature alarm cameras offer worldwide certifications, meaning that the cameras are compliant with specific country regulations across the globe.

Axis Communications says

“Industrial plant operators have a tremendously difficult task,” says Martina Lundh, global product manager for thermal and explosion-protected cameras at Axis Communications.

“They need to ensure efficiency and continuity in large-scale, critical industrial processes, while meeting all health, safety and environmental regulations, across multiple locations and, often, across huge areas. Our new cameras deliver critical real-time information, allowing for immediate incident response which can prove to be a life-saving benefit.”

Availability

The new explosion-protected cameras will be available through Axis’ distribution channels in May 2017.
