CorDEX Instruments is launching the ToughPIX 2300XP Series of explosion-proof digital cameras. It complements and inherits proven characteristics from the company's established Centurion XP range. However, the ToughPIX 2300XP Series also brings to market several new features, the most significant of which is an onboard memory of up to 8GB that is claimed to be unique for this type of camera.
Clearly the benefit of this larger memory is the camera's ability to capture even more high-quality still and moving images, in AVI format, with a resolution of up to 10 megapixels. This not only enables maintenance professionals to get the most from survey time, but also ensures that images of equipment and processes are crisp and highly detailed. Images are then easily transferred via high-speed USB to a PC in a safe area.
The rugged, IP54 camera body is made from anodised aluminium with an over-moulded anti-static cover. It has a backlit, armoured glass, 2.4inch LCD screen for image capture and review in the field, and incorporates onboard, fully automatic strobe flash for image capture in extreme, low-light environments. ToughPIX 2300XP Series cameras also feature a red-eye reduction function and a six-times digital zoom.
Another important differentiator of the ToughPIX 2300XP Series - and the entire CorDEX Instruments' range - is its ergonomic design. All large, easy-access controls are located so that even if thick protective gloves are being worn, the camera is very easy to use. The new ToughPIX 2300XP Series is ATEX-certified for image capture within a Zone 1 IIC T4 hazardous (explosive) area. As with all CorDEX Instruments' cameras, these new models have no need for a hot work permit. They are instantly usable and powered by a dedicated, removable and rechargeable NiMH battery. All models in the ToughPIX Series come complete with battery, charging station, power pack, battery removal tool, USB communication wand, documentation CD and hard carrying case. Also standard is a hand strap to provide extra stability when shooting images.
