XP40-Q1942 Explosion-Protected PT Thermal Network Camera helps you monitor employee safety and detect the unauthorized individuals in hazardous areas. With its heavy-duty stainless-steel housing, XF40-Q1942 is certified for explosion-prone applications.

A combination of 360° pan and 90° tilt capabilities and VGA 640×480 thermal resolution means that the AXIS XP40-Q1942 Explosion-Protected PT Thermal Network Camera can accurately detect, verify, and then act upon events taking place in a large area and at a great distance.

In addition, thanks to a combination of dynamic histogram equalization, enhanced local contrast and dynamic sharpening, XP40-Q1942 improves image contrast for sharp video with great detail in all conditions.

Typical applications include detection of people in restricted areas and protection of employees and critical infrastructure, as well as the safety of personnel in hazardous areas.

Additionally, it features a 316L stainless steel housing, which prevents any inside sparks or explosions from escaping and igniting gases or dust in the surrounding air.

AXIS XP40-Q1942 can seamlessly integrate with existing supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) architectures.

In addition, XP40-Q1942 supports Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Axis’ Zipstream technologies.

EIS improves video quality in situations where a camera is subject to vibrations, providing smooth and comfortable live viewing while Axis’ Zipstream lowers the bandwidth and storage requirements.

(Axis’ electronic image stabilization (EIS) is designed to cover a wide range of frequencies, as well as coping with high and low amplitudes, even in scenes with lots of motion. With electronic image stabilization activated, the vibrating effect in video is reduced and thus providing a smoother and steadier image – even on windy days when vibrations otherwise would have affected the video quality.
