Visex ATEX and IECEx Certified Camera Enclosure

The VisEx camera housing is suitable for housing various POE (Power Over Ethernet) camera and vision systems where operation in a Zone 1 hazardous area is required.

Some examples of where these could be (and have been) used:

Zone 1 areas vision inspection – large quantities of flammable liquids, gasses, ignitable vapour or mist is expected to be present for long periods of time under normal operating conditions (eg – aerosol filling plants, oil refineries)

Zone 20, 21 and 22 locations (the IEC has recently introduced the three-Zone system for combustible dust locations). Areas in which a combustible dust, as a cloud, is present continuously or frequently during normal operations in sufficient quantities to produce an explosive mixture. (eg: ammunition assembly inspection)

Manufactured in marine grade stainless steel and toughened glass, the VisEx camera housing offers excellent environmental protection with protection to IP66/67 as standard.

If required, we can supply both a camera system and the enclosure as a completely certified unit.
