Performance Intrinsically Safe Helmet Headlamp

  • Intrinsically safe
  • Approved for Class I, Division 1, Groups A,B,C,D
  • 24 white LEDs
  • 44.2 Lumens
  • Low profile with 45° quick tilt
  • Powered by 4x AA batteries
  • Up to 8 hours at full power
  • Tap on/off switch
  • Waterproof to 20 feet / 6 meters
  • 2-year warranty

The Performance is approved for use in Class I hazardous locations even where group A & B gases may be present. These include hydrogen and acetylene, and means that it may be used in all Class I, Division 1 & 2 locations without having to consider which gas hazard is present.

Photo of the Foxfury Performance intrinsically safe helmet headlamp mounted on a safety helmetDesigned for use with or without a safety helmet the Performance has an attached battery pack* containing four AA batteries, yet the weight is only a fraction over 10 ounces. The low profile LED light bar may be tilted downwards by 45 degrees, and power is turned on & off by a simple tap switch. It works best for activities within a 20 foot range, but can illuminate up to 150 feet away.

*Note that operation in hazardous locations requires that the battery pack may not be opened. Batteries may only be changed when the headlamp has been returned to a non-hazardous location.

Photo of the Extronics iCAM100 explosion proof video cameraiCAM100 Compact Fixed Focus CCTV Camera

The iCAM100 is designed for use in hazardous areas where surveillance is required in tight spaces. The camera is a perfect choice for use in a CCTV network, or simply as a single point monitor of a process operation.

ATEX certified for Zones 1, 21, & 2, 22, and has IP65 ingress protection against harsh environments. 316L stainless steel and GRP construction.

The iCAM100 uses a high specification color CCD sensor operating down to 0.5 Lux and producing 380 line output in PAL format. Connection to a video monitor such as the iVID100 monitor below or CCTV system is made using either 75Ω coax or 150Ω differential signal cable outputs.

 


 

iVID101 Explosion Proof CCTV Monitor

The iVID101 consists of a 12.1 TFT LCD display mounted in an ATEX explosion proof enclosure behind a glass viewing window. It can be connected to various types of video input signals including the iCAM100 and similar CCTV cameras. 24 VDC output is available to power the camera.

Options are available on request including external push buttons for pan, tilt, & zoom, video multiplexing, and full/quad screen functions. Other custom engineered solutions are available on request to meet your specific needs.
