Security Cameras for Extreme Environments
For wet or harsh outdoor locations, maritime applications, and potentially corrosive or explosive environments, suitable cameras are required – cameras that are engineered to survive in such conditions while delivering security with excellent performance. There are good reasons that such cameras come equipped with sun shrouds, heaters, and blowers, and are constructed of rugged 316 stainless steel – these cameras are engineered for survival in these real-world environments.
Cameras for Exposed Outdoor Installations
Challenging outdoor security camera installations must take extreme temperatures, rain, and ice into account.
Where indoor cameras may have an operating temperature range of -10°C to 55°C (14ºF – 131ºF), robust outdoor models have much more comprehensive operating temperature ranges up to -60°C to 60°C (-76º – 140ºF). Also, they are certified to a full set of demanding standards so that they can survive not only falling water but even direct hose-downs without damage.
Security Cameras for Harsh Conditions
Other harsh conditions for security cameras include not only the temperatures and water challenges mentioned above, but also corrosive environments and protection from the ingress of foreign objects such as dust, lint, fibers and flyings. For such applications, rugged cameras are designed to be protected from all these conditions, meeting the strict NEMA Type 4X standards, among others.
For the ultimate in safety and survivability, these rugged cameras are flameproof, dust-tight, and explosion proof. They bring the best practices of safety science into the real-world installations that security managers need for chemical, energy, and infrastructure facilities, and they do so with the highest level of functionality, performance, and speed.
