Using the Centurion XPC, maintenance engineers, safety managers and inspectors in oil, gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and other facilities can safely capture still and video images to safely document operations and plant conditions, even in explosive atmospheres.

Once back in a safe environment, users can quickly and easily download the images to a personal computer for review, analysis and storage. They connect the camera through a USB port and simply drag and drop selected images and videos-no special software is required.

CorDEX has named leading distributor TRANSCAT first to distribute the Centurion XPC explosion-proof digital camera in the United States.

“We are extremely excited to be promoting CorDEX Instruments latest Explosion Proof product”, explained Jay Clark, Director of Vendor Marketing for TRANSCAT. “Safety is very important to our Oil, Gas & Petrochemical customers and this product helps them to capture images in Class I, Div. 1 areas safely, the new Centurion XPC fits neatly into our current product portfolio”

The Centurion XPC explosion-proof digital camera is certified for image capture within a Class I, Div.1 Groups B, C, D hazardous (explosive) area. Incorporating a 5 Megapixel sensor and up to 4x zoom, Centurion XPC has the ability to capture images up to 10 Megapixels, as well as moving pictures in AVI format.

With its still and moving image capture capability, Centurion XPC allows documentation of equipment and processes within an explosive area quickly and easily for maintenance, safety and quality control. It is designed for all weather day/night operation and is rugged and durable enough for use in such challenging environments as offshore drilling rigs.

Incorporating an onboard, fully automatic strobe flash, Centurion XPC can capture still images in extreme low light situations at the touch of a button. Users can review still images and movies on the armored 2.4 inch LCD screen located at the rear of the camera, even in the field.

Available with onboard image storage of 2Gb, the Centurion XPC can store hundreds of images which are then transferred via high speed USB communications link to a PC, once in the safe area. Each camera comes with a removable, rechargeable 1000mAH NiMH battery pack.

Centurion XPC is also supplied complete with a battery charging station, mains power pack, USB cable, battery removal tool, documentation CD/Manual. Additional battery packs and accessories are available from CorDEX Instruments Authorized Distributors or online.
