Global technology company Bosch has launched EXTEGRA IP 9000 FX, a new family of explosion-proof IP cameras developed for safe operation in hazardous environments. Whether exceptionally hot or cold (-50-¦ to +60-¦ Celsius), poor lighting conditions, great distances or high moisture and dust levels in the air, the new cameras deliver the highest quality of security relevant images. The cameras are ATEX and IECEX certified and tested according to the IEC standard EN50130-5. Overall quality and safety are further assured with the CSA and IEC 60950-1 certifications.
For use in caustic environments, the cameras are offered in stainless steel versions. Both the stainless steel and aluminium housings are IP68 and NEMA 6P certified. The products feature a 30x optical zoom with autofocus, enabling remote configuration to detect objects from nine to 700 meters (2,296 ft). The cameras can be powered over Ethernet (HiPoE) or 24 Volt, ensuring continuous availability of power supply.
The EXTEGRA IP 9000 FX family consists of two models. In extreme low light situations, the EXTEGRA IP starlight 9000 FX camera excels by delivering HD video images and easily capturing fast-moving objects at 720p HD resolution and up to 60 frames per second. It continues to provide video images where other cameras fail, even down to 0.0103 lux. Similarly, clear HD images are captured in full colour right down to 0.052 lux, when other cameras switch to monochrome.
Bosch has specifically designed these two cameras to be heavy duty, yet easy to install and maintain.
