Axis Presents Security Cameras for Offshore Wind Farms
Axis Communications has launched a new range of SAE 316L stainless steel security cameras for offshore wind farm installations.
The new Axis Q60-S series can withstand the corrosive effect of sea water and has IP66, IP6K9K, NEMA 4X and MIL-STD-810G 509.5 approvals, ensuring protection against dust, rain, high pressure/steam jet cleaning, snow, ice and salt. Pressurized nitrogen prevents internal condensation. The cameras feature 360° wide coverage in resolutions of up to HDTV 1080p and great zoomed-in detail with up to 36x optical zoom.
AXIS Q60-S cameras, with SAE 316L stainless steel and a nylon clear dome cover, can operate in -30°C to 50°C (-22°F to 122°F).
They come with a multi-connector cable and a media converter switch that allows for network connection using standard network or fiber optic cables. The switch also enables the cameras to connect to external alarm devices via two configurable input/output ports and to 12 V power. Stainless steel mounting accessories are sold separately.
The new top-of-the-line AXIS Q60-S PTZ Dome Network Cameras in nitrogen-pressurized stainless steel casings are ideal for surveillance and remote monitoring applications in marine, mining, oil and gas environments, as well as food, medical and clean room manufacturing facilities. The rust-free cameras can resist the corrosive effect of sea water and cleaning chemicals, and withstand high-pressure steam cleaning. Pressurized nitrogen prevents internal condensation.
“AXIS Q60-S cameras provide exceptional video surveillance and high durability for reliable performance in demanding indoor and outdoor environments,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. “The stainless steel models are the latest additions to our newly upgraded AXIS Q60 PTZ Dome Series.”
All AXIS Q60-S cameras support shock detection, which mechanically detects and triggers an alarm if the camera has been hit. AXIS Q6042-S and AXIS Q6044-S provide electronic image stabilization, which reduces the effects of camera vibrations (from wind or traffic) to provide clearer, more useful video.
