Camera Enclosures for Extreme Environments

These special enclosures are designed to protect IP cameras from harsh environments. The first set of IP camera housings is designed to operate in extremely high-temperatures such as blast furnaces, or rocket test viewing. These liquid-cooled enclosures are designed for very high-temperature environments. The second set of enclosures are designed for saltwater applications like marine or coast patrol, industrial or chemical applications, and where external agents are highly corrosive.

High-Temperature Enclosure for Optical IP Cameras

Camera enclosure for ovensThe TVIP-N2XW enclosure is designed to protect an IP camera used for viewing the inside of blast furnaces, foundries, or other high-temperature applications such as viewing a rocket test.

The N2XW housing is constructed from electropolished stainless steel and consists of a body with a double chamber for the circulation of a cooling liquid or air. The N2XW is enclosed by two thick flanges at either end and allows cables to pass through by means of two PG13.5 cable glands on the back flange. The front flange can be equipped with tempered glass or quartz glass for higher temperature.

Features of TVIP-N2XW

  • Made of AISI 316L electropolished stainless steel
  • Steel cylindrical chamber for internal circulation of cooling liquid linked to an external circuit
  • IP66/IP67 Supplied air barrier
  • 2 PG13,5 cable glands nickel-plated brass for external connections
  • Available accessories: camera power supply, air filtering group for glass cleaning, tempered glass (max 260°C (500°F)) quartz glass (max 400°C (752°F)) infrared glass (max 260°C (500°F))

High-Temperature Enclosure for Thermal IP Cameras

enclosure for thermal cameraThe TVIP-N4TW enclosure is a liquid-cooled housing for thermal cameras. Special glass is used to allow proper operation of the thermal camera.

The enclosure can be equipped with zinc selenide glass designed for thermal video cameras with a wavelength from 7.5μm to 14μm, or sapphire glass for shortwave thermal video cameras, with a wavelength from 0.75μm to 4.5μm.

Features of TVIP-N4TW

  • Made of AISI 316L electropolished stainless steel
  • Steel cylindrical chamber for internal circulation of cooling liquid linked to an
    external circuit
  • Zinc-Selenium glass for thermal cameras, wavelength 7.5 – 14μm (up to
    200°C/500°F)
  • Sapphire glass for shortwave thermal cameras, wavelength 0.75 – 4.5μm (up to
    400°C/752°F)
  • Designed to operate in high-temperature environments
  • IP66/IP67

Stainless Steel Enclosures for Harsh Environments

Enclosure for extreme environmentThe TVIP-N3XM is an example of some of the stainless steel enclosures available. These housings are used in saltwater and other harsh environments.

The N3XM was developed for installations in highly corrosive areas such as industrial chemical, petrochemical, marine, naval and offshore platforms.  The enclosure is made from electropolished and passivated AISI 316L stainless steel for maximum protection against deterioration.

Weatherproof IP66/IP68, it provides complete protection against dust and it’s submersible down to 40m (130ft). The options of a wiper and water pump ensure a constant cleaning of the front window For the coldest environments down to -40°C (-40°F), the range includes a specific version with a reinforced heater. The housing can be installed on Pan & Tilt head, to obtain a complete positioning system.

Features of TVIP-N3XM

  • Made of AISI 316L electropolished stainless steel IP66/IP68,
  • Submersible down to -40m (-130ft), equal to 4 bar max pressure
  • Cylindrical body enclosed by two 6mm(0.24in)-thick circular flanges
  • 2 PG13,5 cable glands nickel-plated brass for external connections
  • Available accessories: heater and double heater (for temperatures down to -40°C (-40°F), camera power supply, wiper and washer pump

 

Stainless Steel PTZ Enclosures for Saltspray and other Extreme Environments

Stainless PTZ IP camera systemTVIP-N4XPTZ DELUX pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera system is designed for off-shore or on-shore applications where there are salt water spray and other corrosive environments.

This is a 2-Megapixel HD PTZ camera which integrates very low-light imaging and encoding technology for outdoor video surveillance, allowing recordings to be produced with incredibly bright and vivid colors both by day and by night.

In addition to improved light sensitivity with outstanding color reproduction and greater noise reduction, the DELUX technology gives an advanced new performance in terms of proportional zoom control.

The system is protected to IP69 standard. This means it not only can be emersed in water, it can also be cleaned with a high-pressure, high-temperature water jet.

KEY FEATURES

  • Stainless steel AISI 316L
  • Camera Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels), 60fps
  • Zoom lens: 30X, 4.5mm – 135mm (61.6° wide to 2.5° tele)
  • Minimum Illumination:
    • Color: 0.006lx
    • B/W: 0.0006lx
  • pan 360 continuous rotation, tilt +90 to -90
  • Video compression H.264/AVC, MJPEG, JPEG, and MPEG4
  • Up to 3 simultaneous video streams in FULL HD
  • Operating temperature: from -40°C (-40°F) up to +60°C (140°F)
  • Protection degree: IP66, IP67, IP68, IP69

 

Dual optical and thermal PTZ cameraThere are other enclosures in this family that are designed for different size cameras and for thermal cameras. The range includes different models that can meet the needs of any application:  housings that are adapted for immersion in water, with an air barrier for cleaning or cooling of the front window; housings for Hi-PoE cameras that are powered via Ethernet cable.

These housings can be used in places such as tunnels and high-pollution areas, in underwater monitoring systems, for the management of industrial processes, and in blast furnaces and foundries.
