Industrial Video & Control (IVC) announced the availability of its APTZ-3045-04 industrial video camera, designed and certified for hazardous environments. The camera offers outstanding low-light performance in difficult, outdoor conditions and is available at a low price point.
IVC sells its line of Class I Division 1 certified video cameras to customers who demand high-quality video in areas where ignitable concentrations of gases or vapors exist. Devices classified as Class I Division 1 must also be intrinsically safe, incapable of causing ignition of a mixture of flammable or combustible material. IVC’s line of Class I Division 1 video cameras meets this rigid standard. The APTZ-3045-04 was tested and certified by Intertek.
“The APTZ-3045-04 gives our petrochemical customers an extremely cost-effective Class I Division 1 PTZ camera,” said Norm Fast, IVC's CEO. “Our certified cameras are used for monitoring pipelines, drilling operations, and production facilities. These cameras are also being used successfully in the aerospace and other industries.”
The APTZ-3045-04 is a rugged, high-resolution, analog, color video camera and includes an optical zoom ratio of 36x. This pantilt-zoom camera is housed in a Class I Division 1-rated stainless-steel enclosure.
When used with IVC’s Relay Server or Longwatch camera management software, the camera becomes part of a comprehensive process and safety monitoring system. IVC's software includes features to integrate camera video with SCADA systems in place. The APTZ-3045-04 is shipping now.
