Surveillance – Monitoring Cameras for hazardous and explosion-proof further evolved and replaced the classic sensors in the field of automation systems. The digitization of the video signal increases the options for effectively integrating it into existing system control processes and control processes. The requirements placed on this Surveillance and monitoring in the risk of explosion and danger zones from simple monitoring with the help of statistical and passive video sources to explosion-proof cameras with zoom functions and intelligent analysis electronics and complex PTZ cameras, such as dome camera systems with or without integrated audio. . These areas include: Oil & Gas off / On Shore, Petrochemical & Oil-Gas refineries, Coal & Gas supply for Electric Power Generation, Electric Power distribution, Airport-Seaport areas, Heavy Industry, and other hazardous & extreme environments.


Oil and gas are extracted, transported, stored and refined under very harsh conditions. To maintain complete safety standards at all times, explosion-proof products and systems must be able to provide the highest performance and reliability, and must withstand heat, cold, humidity, vibration and shock. It must continue to operate year after year with minimal maintenance requirements. We maintain the entire process above with CCTV Video Technology ANTI – EXLPOSION, FLAMMABLE, and HAZARDOUS Area to ensure the entire production process runs optimally.


There are many types of mining materials for fuel – power generation. The mining and coal production processes contain dangerous and flammable gases and dusts. In particular, dust and gases generated from raw material storage, distribution and transportation equipment require the highest level of explosion protection. Therefore, all coal mining and other mining production processes, whether during dredging, transportation and storage, require a very strict monitoring and monitoring system to prevent any bad risks.


Likewise in the referinary process, after transporting crude oil or gas released from land and sea areas, it undergoes a process of production, refining, and refining of raw materials to be processed into fuel or household products for use in economic conditions. The gases or environments generated today cause corrosive, acidic, or sulfuric environments, and it should be possible to maintain the full functionality of the equipment even in situations where the functioning of human resources is difficult or impossible, such as such an environment.


For industrial production activities or logistics subsidiary activities, toxic chemicals, strong bases or strong acid hazardous substances are produced, stored and handled in small or large units. These substances are highly flammable and are well controlled from fire. Due to the nature of the material, common plastics or materials prone to oxidation are not included.


The automotive industry accounts for the largest share of industrial production activities in the 20th century. There are many parts and processes, and there are also processes that can cause fires and explosions. In particular, these explosion-proof conditions are required for the painting and painting process. Various paints and raw materials used in the painting and painting process are highly flammable substances that can be generated in the form of dust, and fire explosions can occur even with invisible flames.


Oil and gas are emitted from extremely harsh areas, such as onshore and offshore. When oil rigs are installed and operated or eviction areas become the Arctic, the environment must withstand the harsh and extreme cold seas, and in the case of desert areas, the warmest temperatures reach at midday and the extreme temperatures drop at night. . This is accompanied by a harsh environment with very high vibration and shock from the release equipment. Monitoring devices operating in this environment must be extremely durable.

The ETEX / EICEX International certificate camera is designed to supply high-quality products and systems that can withstand extreme vibration and shock, as well as in the hottest, humid and coldest environments, and strives to develop products that can operate 24 hours a day in any environment in the world.


Video surveillance systems in many facilities require anti-corrosive enclosures to withstand corrosive and harsh environments. For example for marine applications, saltwater corrosion will easily cause rust and damage the system. This challenge occurs in the application of analysis, monitoring and optimization of operations in Seaport, harbor shipping and logistics.
Due to its inevitable corrosive environment and high value, finding a highly durable yet flexible video surveillance system for this critical facility has become difficult but essential.


OPTOLUS, providing solutions to withstand the most corrosive environments, the stainless steel / explosion-proof series gives you the flexibility to upgrade the camera that best fits your case. High durability and easy-to-clean characteristics of stainless steel prevents damage to corrosive materials, moisture from the installation area. Nitrogen filling is also optional to further avoid internal corrosion and reduce the risk of explosion.


Steel mills, which are used to produce and supply metal and steel, which are the main basis of industrial production activities, are an environment where large amounts of gas, dust and high heat are generated, and the imaging equipment required for these places requires the use of these materials. special stainless steel. In addition, there are still many types of power plants that generate electricity, namely energy that is supplied to all communities, including all industrial activities, but especially major nuclear power plants that store gas and fuel, and areas prone to explosions and fires. exists in many places. In the event of an accident, the highest level of explosion protection is required in raw material storage, battery storage room, hydrogen storage room, etc., which will likely develop into a large-scale accident.

OPTOLUS, ensures the high quality anti explosion CCTV needed by power plants, steel mills and other industrial energy facilities, and assists in safe operations by designing and supplying them according to the specifications required for each production location.


The way a biogas power plant works is based on a biological principle: organic decomposition. After fermentation it is filled with biomass, which is initially biogas, and then usually in the second stage electricity and heat are generated through fermentation.

Why are explosion-proof cameras even needed for biogas installations?

The substrate is often kept airtight in the fermenter for 30 days at a temperature between 35 ° and 55 ° C to ensure that anaerobic decomposition process takes place. Microorganisms break down the substrate, producing exhaust gases such as carbon dioxide, sulfur gas, air vapor, and methane. The greatest danger to biogas plants lies in the fact that the gases produced are explosive and can be ignited by sparks.

OPTOLUS supplies ATEX – explosion-proof CCTV needed to monitor the entire process of biogas plants and other energy facilities, and assists in safe operation according to the specifications required for each location and place of BIOGAS Power Plant Operation.
