Complete CCTV solutions for hazardous areas in the CPI

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

In plants where extensive piping, decentrally placed reactors and transport equipment or remote loading and unloading stations require guard tours by specially trained staff, adequate surveillance can present major cost factors. This company’s IP-based camera systems (photo) are an economical alternative for safely identifying potential hazards and reducing personnel costs. The manufacturer also offers a service package that includes user-specific planning, project engineering, configuration and commissioning of the closed-caption television (CCTV) systems, as well as corresponding training. Solutions for the surveillance of extensive areas are based on a combination of fixed cameras with series EC 94x PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) remote pan and tilt cameras with optical zoom. Certified according to ATEX, IECEx, NEC, CEC and EAC for hazardous Zones 1, 2, 21, 22, the cameras provide detailed images even in difficult light thanks to full HD resolution and low-light technology. — R.
