Convenient Filming and Photographing in ATEX Zone 2: The New ARMADEX OZC Explosion Proof Camera That Fits In Your Pocket

In recent years, a lot of connectivity and smart solutions have been introduced in the ATEX zones. For example Wi-Fi systems, LoRa (driving innovations in industry 4.0) and explosion proof smartphones. However, digital cameras where long left behind. The available products suffered low specifications and were very clunky. Ex-Machinery is proud to solve these issues by introducing their new ATEX Zone 2 Camera.

Specifications & Benefits

The Armadex OZC is capable of taking very high quality images that would not be matched by the latest smartphone. The lightweight, rugged camera features 4K filming (the resolution of a modern flatscreen tv) and 4x slow-motion.

The OZC is extra suitable for using on site, because it comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). This technology ensures that the video is stable, even when walking around. This makes for a much clearer and more professional image.

When inspecting sites or conducting maintenance, some parts may be hard to reach. The 5x optical zoom feature ensures lossless zooming both in videos and photographs. In addition to that the camera is equipped with a 2x digital zoom function, making for a total of 10x zoom whilst maintaining great image quality.
