Pelco introduces explosion proof cameras for IFSEC 2017

Attendees at this year’s IFSEC International will have the opportunity to experience a number of new and innovative cameras from Pelco by Schneider Electric (Stand D800). Headlining these advanced solutions are the company’s ExSite Enhanced Explosion-Proof Cameras which are engineered to survive in the most demanding environments, and Optera Panoramic Multi-Sensor Cameras that are integrated with the industry’s leading VMS providers to deliver panomersive HD imaging that puts you in the middle of a scene.

“Where Pelco imaging technology was perhaps a step behind the competition, we are clearly taking the lead once again with new solutions like our ExSite Enhanced Explosion-Proof Cameras and Optera Panoramic Multi-Sensor Cameras,” said Kevin Saldanha, Director Product Management, Pelco by Schneider Electric. “ExSite Enhanced cameras are engineered to survive like no other with a virtually indestructible housing built to eliminate the possibility of electrical discharge which can cause explosions in some environments. And our Optera panoramic cameras make multi-sensor panoramic cameras ideal for mainstream use with the right combination of performance, reliability, cost-efficiency and now VMS compatibility. We’ve got it all covered!”

ExSite Enhanced Explosion-Proof Cameras’ robotically welded water- and corrosion-resistant stainless steel housing meets the tough NEMA Type 4X standard for use in extreme environments such as oil and gas facilities, chemical plants, manufacturing and more. Its unique patent-pending direct drive pan-tilt system is devoid of belts, gears or pulleys to eliminate stray electrical discharge while providing the highest levels of physical integrity. They also feature Pelco’s exclusive SureVision™ technology to capture superior images in difficult lighting conditions where highly contrasted lighting sources exist within the same scene. Some other features include an enhanced WDR of 130 dB, advanced low light performance with full color down to 0.05 lux, anti-bloom technology, 3D noise filtering, enhanced tone mapping for color accuracy, and more.

Optera™ Panoramic Multi-Sensor Cameras provide completely stitched, seamless and blended 360°, 270° and 180° panoramic views with electronic PTZ capability across the entire panoramic image for superior wide area surveillance and forensic scene analysis. Featuring Pelco’s exclusive SureVision technology, Optera Panoramic Multi-Sensor Cameras capture superior images in difficult lighting conditions where highly contrasted lighting sources exist within the same scene. Optera Multi-Sensor Cameras also feature Smart Compression technology, which reduces bitrate usage, resulting in up to 70% savings on storage. Additionally, Pelco Optera Panoramic Multi-Sensor Cameras are integrated with over 20 VMS solutions, including exacqVision, Genetic, Milestone, OnSSI, Vista, Verint and Qognify, to ensure seamless implementation and ease of use.

Additional imaging solutions from Pelco being highlighted at IFSEC, include: Esprit Enhanced HD PTZ Cameras, which now include SureVision with 130dB of True WDR and low-light performance up to 20 times better than previous Esprit HD PTZ Camera models. Built with Pelco’s iconic Esprit Series positioning system, these cameras deliver best-in-class image quality and pan/tilt performance, and full HD 1080p 30x optical zoom. Esprit Enhanced cameras are available with either standard or pressurized optical zoom modules that deliver exceptional image quality and high-speed positioning capabilities in the toughest outdoor environments.
