Live from ISC West: Moog offers explosion-proof HD camera system
Moog Inc. has unveiled its EXO Explosion Proof High-Definition Network Camera System for the oil & gas, petroleum processing, fertilizer, and mining industries at the ISC West 2014 expo and conference in Las Vegas this week. The EXO Camera System was designed for the most hazardous, explosive environments, usually the areas in the immediate vicinity of the source of fumes and dust, and therefore requires the highest degree of explosive prevention. Using the segregation method -- these Class 1 & 2, Division 1 camera systems allow users to install cameras wherever a need for surveillance exists and containment protected systems cannot be installed.
The camera system captures 1080P full HD video in Class I & II, Division 1 hazardous environments, offering 9x the resolution of competing systems. Unlike most camera systems limited to Zone 1 environments, the Moog EXO camera safely operates within constant fumes and dust of Division I environments by using its self-monitored purge mechanism. The H.264 and ONVIF-compliant EXO camera includes an open-architecture network appliance to speak with major VMS systems. It features a 316 stainless steel and IK10 vandal-resistant enclosure.
According to Moog, its EXO Explosion Proof camera system isolates hazards, via purging, with a supply of inert gas. Moog designed the camera system to UL standards for hazardous environments, and Moog engineers developed the purged and pressurized enclosures to meet UL NFPA 496 requirements for electrical equipment, and ULNFPA 60950-1 requirements for information technology equipment.
“We design and produce high-quality, scalable physical-security and process monitoring solutions for extreme environments in areas of asset protection, threat intervention, border protection, system health monitoring, and communication around the world,” said Christopher Lindenau, director of sales and marketing for Moog Sensor & Surveillance Systems.
