Electronic equipment such as network cameras that are installed in hazardous environments may be at risk of igniting vapors, gases, dust or fibers in the air surrounding them. A new explosion-protected camera line is suitable for hazardous environments such as oil and gas, mining and industrial sites. The cameras are also optimized to operate reliably even at increased temperature variances. 

The Avigilon H5A cameras by Motorola Solutions include advanced video analytics capabilities coupled with the explosion-protected camera form factor. The system is equipped with enhanced object detection and tracking, along with support for Avigilon Appearance Search technology, an AI-powered search engine that can sort through hours of video to improve incident response times. 

The camera line also features new Unusual Activity Detection to provide site-wide intelligence with the ability to highlight abnormal activity such as the unusual location or the abnormal speed of a person’s movement. This edge-based intelligence distinguishes between typical and atypical events by continuously learning what constitutes normal activity for a scene over time. For example, if there is an individual running through a highly restricted area on an industrial site, a security guard will be notified in the Focus of Attention interface to locate where the person is and take measures to address the situation, according to

The Explosion-Protected camera is certified for hazardous locations according to applicable international standards, making it an efficient video security solution for markets such as oil and gas, mining, industrial and food production sites.
