Oncam’s 360-degree Evolution becomes first surveillance camera to earn NSF food sanitation certification

The 360-degree stainless steel Evolution camera from Oncan has earned certification from NSF International to standard 169 – the first CCTV camera to do so.

Certification to the standard, which relates to ‘special purpose food equipment and devices’, gives the Evolution camera a strong USP in the food and drink manufacturing sector where sanitation is a top priority.

“The NSF mark is a testament to the fact that Oncam’s stainless steel camera was designed and produced to demonstrate our commitment to quality, compliance and safety,” said Justin Wheatley, VP of product management for cameras at Oncam.

“The unique form factor opens up a world of possibilities for those applications with the need for stringent sanitation requirements and protection from the elements. It is the perfect addition to our product range and innovative 360-degree surveillance technology offering.”

The Evolution camera is commonly used in harsh environments because of its corrosion resistance to salt and chemical spray. Suitable sectors include food processing, industrial/chemical plants, vehicle wash stations, ports and marine applications and prestige architecture.

Available in 5MP and 12MP models, it was awarded a Gold Award at the 2016 Merilon Awards at the Safety & Security Asia event in Singapore. In 2017, it received the Money-saving Product of the Year award from Buildings Magazine.

Evolution is also rated to the most stringent rating for IP protection against water and dust ingress, IP69K, and is IK-10-rated against vandalism. The camera enclosure, which is constructed from electropolished marine-grade 316 stainless steel, is more resistant to corrosion and rusting than traditional steel.

NSF independently tests, audits, certifies, trains and consults for the food, water, health science, sustainability and consumer product sectors.
