Thermal imaging equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Hawk IR International : 29 June, 2007  (New Product)
Hawk IR thermal imaging cameras are available for a range of applications including intruder detection and comply with the ATEX directive for use in explosive environments.
Thermal imaging cameras offer unique solutions to some difficult problems. With the ability to "see" in total darkness, through mist or fog and with excellent contrast and sensitivity, thermal imaging camera stations can be used for a variety of duties; security, surveillance, navigation and process monitoring.

Thermal imaging camera stations differ from traditional illuminated infrared cameras, as they operate solely from radiated target heat. This results in systems with far greater sensitivity and much better contrast meaning better image quality and target acquisition.

The Equipment and Protective Systems intended for use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres (ATEX) Directive 94/9/EC came into force on 1st July 2003.
It covers all mechanical and electrical equipment and protection systems to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres, eg underground, on surface or at fixed offshore installations.

The countries covered by the Directive are all the European Union (EU) countries plus the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) countries.

Recent developments have allowed high technology thermal camera stations to be manufactured and certified to the latest ATEX Equipment Directive and deployed with excellent results across a variety of applications including;.

* Oil Spillage Detection.
* Imaging in total darkness.
* Imaging through smoke or fog.
* Intruder /personnel detection.
* Detection of hot (or cold) objects.
* Material differentiation.

Hawk IR International are the worlds leading manufacturer of ATEX Certified thermal imaging camera systems, both Fixed Stations and Handheld Cameras.
