The ARMADEX Ex-M OZC 3 is the only explosion proof camera boasting a 4x optical zoom. Designed for ATEX Zone 2 (Gas) environments, this camera merges compact durability with high functionality. It withstands drops up to 2.1m, operates down to -10 degrees Celsius, and resists dust intrusion.

The OZC 3 is a modified version of the TG-7, in collaboration with OM System.

This camera excels in hazardous areas, offering specialized shooting modes for low light and dusty environments (construction mode), alongside a mode tailored for clear capturing labels. Ideal for maintenance and inspection tasks, it’s engineered for precision and safety.

Note: ATEX Regulations necessitate the xenon flash tube’s deactivation, but the LED flash remains operational, ensuring visibility and functionality.

This product includes a tailor made PELI Rugged Case.
