Lenox Instrument Company announces the addition of Internet protocol (IP) net workable models to its line of high-temperature, Furnace Camera HD and Hot Area Camera Systems. The web browser enabled models offers the user maximum flexibility and connectivity for viewing and recording real-time color video images via a standard web browser or by integration into other video management systems.
These Ethernet camera systems allow users to record camera output on a network connected PC, server, or digital video recorder and then easily access images remotely from any PC on the corporate network or the internet. The digital camera systems are capable of generating a configurable IP, high-definition resolution, MPEG-4 video stream at up to 25 and 30 images per second (for PAL and NTSC respectively).
The Furnace Camera HD System’s water-cooled stainless steel camera housing mounts in a 3.5 inch (89 mm) opening and is capable of operating in hostile environments up to 4250°F (2345°C). The Hot Area Camera System’s water-cooled aluminum camera housing allows operation in environments up to 500°F (260°C) with pinhole or 300°F (149°C) with window. Both the steel-housed and aluminum-housed systems can be configured with a variety of lens options, including zoom capability, and are available with several mounting styles such as pan-and-tilt, cradle-mount and flange-mount. Lenox High-Temperature Camera Systems provide engineers and operators clear, high-resolution images of burner flames, material alignment and movement inside the furnace, refractory condition, and other “high-heat” processes found in iron, steel, metals and glass processing industries.
