The CAM/IR 180 are intrinsically safe cameras. An intrinsically safe instrument that has been designed from the ground up to use low voltage and current together with detailed electronic and mechanical design to eliminate any possibility of generating an ignition source in a hazardous (explosive) area. The instrument has been approved by a notified body to international standards such as ATEX and IECEx. The IEC standard that TC7000 complies with is IEC EN 60079 – 11.

These cameras comply with ATEX/IECEx and have been rigorously tested not only to ensure they will not generate a spark but are also robust enough to maintain that integrity when impacted or subjected to extremes of temperature. This ATEX/IECEx certified camera is, of necessity, much tougher than an equivalent safe area product even if for example the IP rating is similar.

Hazardous areas must be defined into designated zones and instruments must be certified for those zones. The type of hazardous atmosphere (gas, dust, mining) must be specified and the auto ignition temperature of that Zone must be identified with instruments selected that are rated safe for that temperature. If you are in the petrochemical industry you will already be aware of the Zone 1 hazardous areas in your workplace and the restrictions on uncertified instruments. Within those areas you will want to regularly scan for hotspots in:

  • Refractory lining - crackers, heaters
  • Pipe insulation, missing or damaged
  • Steam traps
  • Electrical systems and switchgear
  • Flares
  • Tank insulation and level
  • Motor bearings, gearboxes, electrical connections, shaft misalignment
  • Pipe trace heating and missing or degraded insulation


Additional Applications:

  • Explosive dust environment in sugar, grain, chemical, foodstuff industry
  • Mining industry, coal, ore, precious metals
  • Marine, all LNG and other petrochemical carriers
  • Pharmaceutical - dust and inflammable vapours
  • Aerospace - presence of jet fuel
  • Water and sewage processing - methane presence
