Larson's camera features an infrared LED array for low light conditions.

A hazardous location analog observation camera, HAL-CRM-CRNM-ALG-1080P-12V, is equipped with an infrared day/night LED array. This 1080p inspection camera is operated remotely from a centralized control room on 12V DC and has a fixed lens configuration with a 3.6 mm 90-deg. lens to capture large areas.


The camera that allows operators to see live feed from inside tanks, reactors, vessels or other hazardous observation locations, from a centralized control room. The remote observation not only saves time and money but protects workers from having to enter hazardous locations. This 1080p analog camera features an infrared LED array to allow for low light and up to 50 ft of nighttime visibility with an automatic switchover to IR mode when light goes below the present level.


The infrared cutoff filter removal transmits images with zero latency to HD resolution through a customer-provided metal clad coax cable connected to remote mount DVR systems. The camera itself features one lux sensitivity, built-in color CCD camera with a 1/3-in. CCD sensor and a two-wire transmitter. The camera lens has a viewing angle between 28 and 60-deg. with a minimum lens-to-object distance of 3.15 in.


The HAL-CRM-CRNM-ALG-1080P-12V operates on 12V DC and can be linked up with customer DVR systems via a customer provided coax cable with a BNC connector through a ¾-in. NPT. The NEMA 4X housing is waterproof and constructed of corrosion and chemical resistant polycarbonate. The camera weighs just 8 lb. – conveniently lightweight – and comes with an adjustable flat surface bracket and two screws for easy mounting.
