DUBAI –Axis Communications announced its new explosion-protected bullet camera designed for Zone/Division 2 hazardous areas at the 2023 Intersec conference.

The AXIS P1468-XLE Explosion-Protected Bullet Camera is the world's first explosion-protected camera designed specifically for Zone/Division 2 hazardous areas Axis communication stated in its product announcement materials. In particular the camera is designed for Zone 2, 22 and Class I/II/III Division 2 according to international standards (ATEX, IECEx, NEC).

The camera uses the “Ex e” protection method, referred to as “increased safety” or “non-incendive." Using that method ensures that no arcs or sparks can appear, and excessive temperatures cannot be reached thus preventing the ignition of gas or dust in the environment. The AXIS P1468-XLE is considered a robust, weather resistant fixed camera that delivers 4k quality resolution under any lighting conditions thanks to its use of  Lightfinder 2.0, Forensic WDR, and OptimizedIR. Axis boasts that the camera is as easy to install as any standard camera.

“For customers who have wanted to use video surveillance in Zone/Division 2 hazardous locations, the only realistic solution so far has been to use explosion-protected cameras certified for Zone/Division 1 hazardous locations,” said Jesper Olavi, global product manager at Axis. “But these heavy-duty enclosures are over-engineered and unnecessarily expensive for Zone 2/Division 2 hazardous locations. With the launch of AXIS P1468-XLE, customers will have the chance to bring high-quality video surveillance and advanced analytics into locations where they were previously rarely used due to the prohibitive cost.”

He continued, “AXIS P1468-XLE highlights the benefits of Axis designing and manufacturing our own explosion-protected cameras. In designing every element of the camera, we can ensure the methods employed for explosion protection are based on an individual camera’s requirements, rather that creating a ‘generic’ enclosure designed to fit many cameras. It’s a process that leads to an optimal solution for specific environments and use cases.”

The AXIS P1468-XLE is one of three new products that Axis Communications debuted at the show, which also included the AXIS Q1961-TE Thermal Camera and AXIS A1610/AXIS A1610-B Network Door Controllers.
