Video surveillance: HD video camera monitors harsh, hazardous environments

Monitoring system: Industrial Video & Control (IVC) announced the availability of its AMZ-HD41-2 compact, industrial video camera, designed and certified for use in hazardous environments. This heavy-duty camera offers 1080p resolution and excellent performance in a range of lighting conditions.

IVC sells its line of Class I Division 1 certified video cameras to customers who require high-quality video in areas where ignitable concentrations of gases or liquids 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 AMZ-HD41-2 was tested and certified by Intertek.

“With the introduction of the AMZ-HD41-2, we are continuing our customer commitment to deliver a range of certified video cameras that perform exceptionally well in harsh or hazardous conditions,” said Norm Fast, CEO of IVC. “Our certified cameras make it possible for customers in a range of industries – from aerospace and manufacturing to petrochemical and water/wastewater – to improve operator awareness and ensure the safety of personnel.”

Manufactured in the United States, the AMZ-HD41-2 is an HD, color video IP camera. It includes a 3x motor-driven optical zoom and a wide dynamic range for quality images in varying light conditions. It’s housed in a heavy-duty, cast aluminum, weatherproof enclosure suitable for hostile environments. A stainless steel enclosure option is also available.

The AMZ-HD41-2 works with IVC’s full line of video management software offerings including the IVC Relay Server and IVC’s Longwatch camera management software. The camera also integrates easily with 3rd party video security systems or can be operated through a user’s SCADA system. The AMZ-HD41-2 is shipping now.
