The Security Buying Group launches an ATEX-approved fixed camera.

14 August 2014

The Security Buying Group, UK agent for Grundig and Aimetis VMS distributor, has launched an ATEX-approved, explosion-proof, fixed camera solution using a Grundig vandal-resistant dome camera chassis.

“‘ATEX’ certification is a compulsory requirement for CCTV equipment operating in potentially explosive atmospheres,” explained Paul Scott, technical manager at Security Buying Group. “The ATEX rating is defined by the EU directive 94/9/EC. The explosive atmospheres may arise from a mixture of air and flammable materials such as gases, vapours, mists and dusts. The CCTV equipment is categorised by the severity of explosive atmospheres it can withstand. We have introduced this product range to support our work in oil, petrochemical, and off-shore markets.”

The OCULAR “F” fixed camera is ATEX EExde IIC T6 approved. This means it is explosion-proof, with a flameproof safety rating. It has a gas group rating for surface use (not underground) and is categorised as gas group C, for safe use with the most easily ignited gases, mists, vapours and dusts, such as hydrogen and acetylene. Its temperature classification is up to 85°.

The fixed camera is ø100mm x 150mm, made from 316L stainless steel and is amongst the smallest and most cost-effective, fixed camera solutions available.
