Centurion XPG

Share this on social media:

Cordex Instruments, a developer of portable equipment for explosive atmospheres, has released the Centurion XPG, ATEX certified, 5 Megapixel digital camera with strobe flash. The Centurion XP-series cameras offer best-in-class visual image capture for petrochemical and chemical applications. The cameras support applications within Zone 1 IIC T4 type G (Vapour) explosive atmospheres and will provide users with the ability to document equipment with both still and moving images.

Centurion XP cameras are not only restricted to the field of workplace safety, but can be used to help document compliance with Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR), assure malfunctioning equipment and processes are identified correctly, and enable rapid, accurate repairs to ensure plant operation is at maximum efficiency.

The camera is equipped with a 5 million pixel detector array with onboard interpolation options allowing an increase in image resolution to 10 million pixels. A 4x digital zoom allows the camera to be used for both intricate plant details and wide area shots. Onboard memory options range from 512Mb to 2Gb, which can allow thousands of pictures to be stored onboard (depending upon selected resolution). Images and movies can be searched within the explosive area quickly via the keypad and are viewed on a bright 2.5-inch TFT screen.

Centurion XPG is designed for all weather day/night operation and incorporates a high intensity strobe flash for low light work. The camera is removable, with a rechargeable battery pack allowing almost 3 hours' continuous operation. Additional batteries can be charged in the non-hazardous area for fast turnaround, maximising the cameras return on investment. Communication and data exchange with the camera is performed in the non-hazardous area via a high speed USB connection.
