The SamCon ExCam IPP1280 is a rugged, explosion proof IP thermal camera with certified ATEX, IECEX for zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 with a modular design

SamCon ExCam IPP1280


ATEX, IECEx certified. Group II (Gas and Dust) for zone 1, 2 as well as 21, 22

The ExCam IPP1280 is a thermal network camera for use in hazardous areas – offering all advantages of thermal detection. The ExCam IPP1280 is a modular Ex-Network-Camera. This means that it consists of two units: the ultra compact sensor unit (lens and image sensor) and the main unit (network, power and memory card slot). The ExCam series is certified according to European regulations (ATEX) as well as international ones (IECEx). These certificates and further documents can be found in the download area.


  • Certification for Hazardous Areas (ATEX & IECEx)
  • Ultra-Compact and Lightweight Sensort Unit in combination with a Main Unit
  • Thermal Technology for Low False Alarm Rate
  • Single-Cable-Solution
  • Protection level of IP68/IP66 (IEC 60529)

Rugged thermal camera with ATEX and IECEx-certification

Besides the European regulations (ATEX), the ExCam series is also certified according to international regulations (IECEx). The housings’ certification comprises ATEX group II (Gas and Dust) for zone 1, 2 as well as 21 and 22 including the explosion groups IIC / IIIC with a high risk of mechanical threat. In addition, certification can be extended at any time to cover different markets.

During the ExCam IPP1280’s development stage the focus was clearly laid on security aspects as well as mechanical precision and high-quality stainless steels. In addition, the modular design of the housing components prior to the camera’s development allows a free combination of the individual housing components such as different flanges in combination with the housing body - without any limitations regarding explosion protection.

Various Applications for Thermography Ex-Cameras

Ex-proof thermal cameras can be used for various applications in electronic, aerospace industrie, mechanical- and chemical industries, completely independant from lightning conditions. In security services a thermal camera can optimally complete a visual camera.

Reliable explosion proof Heat Monitoring

The ExCam IPP1280 delivers a reliable detection any time of day and night. It sees even in complete darkness! It is ideally suitable for monitoring the temperature of large surfaces because it doesn`t control the temperature punctually but in the whole recording area. The camera recognises immediatly a rise in temperature. Even moving and difficult to access objects are no problem for the ExCam IPP1280. It can detect persons and vehicles without beeing in conflict with privacy. It decreases false alarms. The allowed ambient temperature range of the ExCam IPP1280 starts at -30°C and goes up to +60°C.

Ultra-compact housing - thermal resolution

With its length of just 127 mm and a diameter of only 47 mm, the Sensor Unit of the ExCam IPP1280 is as small that you can mount it everywhere. Thanks to the microbolometer the ExCam IPP1280 can deliver thermal images of moving objects.

Media resistance and seals

Due to the high-quality materials used for the T07 Series, it is resistant against a lot of media. The particularly designed GYLON (PTFE) flat sealing does not only ensure the housing to be watertight (IP68) but also supports the resistance towards several chemicals. The extremely robust and scratch-proof as well as high-impact resistant germanium glass fits perfectly into the high-quality materials of the housing body.

Reducxed installation costs & Power over Etherner(PoE)

A particularity of the ExCam IPP1280 is that data as well as power is transmitted via a single cable which means that for the installation within the safe area, only a PoE-Switch or a PoE-Midspan is required.

Local record sotred & Edge Storage

The ExCam IPQ1280 has a microSD / microSDHC  slot for a memory card of up to 64 GB (card not included) so that each camera disposes of an integrated recording device. In addition, the camera supports the active recording of streams into a central network directory (network storage or file server). The ExCam IPP1280 stores data independently without the control of external computers.

Remote access

Network cameras and video encoders can be accessed and configured remotely so that multiple authorized users can watch live video images at any time and from any networked location worldwide.  This is an advantage in case you want to grant users of other companies, e.g. of a security company, access to the video images as well.

Intelligent Camera - thanks to various smart analytic features

Often, an excessive amount of video data is recorded and there is not enough time available to analyze it properly. Advanced network cameras and video encoders with integrated intelligence or analysis functions resolve this problem by reducing irrelevant video recordings as well as by initiating pre-programmed actions. Such functions are not available for analog systems. The ExCam IPP1280 offers integrated functions such as video motion detection, active tampering alarm, and alarm and event management functions. Using these features makes the network cameras and video encoders capable of continuously analyzing the input data in order to detect events and to respond automatically – e.g. by starting a video recording and sending alarm notifications. Event management functions can be set via the user interface or the network video software. Users can define the alarms or events by the used trigger and specify the time period in which the event has to be active. Furthermore, the actions can be configured (e.g. recording of one or more locations, locally and / or at remote locations, activation of external devices such as sirens, lights and door opener, sending notifications to users).

Easy, safe and sustainable integration

Network video products based on open standards can be integrated simply in combination with video management and application software.

Scalability and flexibility

A network video system can grow with the needs of its users. For IP-based systems, the same wired or wireless network can be used for data exchange by many network cameras and video encoders as well as other types of applications.
Therefore, a variable number of network video products can be added to the system without the need for extensive or expensive changes to the network infrastructure. In an analog system this is not possible. In an analog video system a particularly provided coaxial cable must be wired directly from each camera to a display / recording station. In comparison, network video products can virtually be placed at any site and incorporated into any network. They can be open or strictly protected.

Cost efficiency

An IP-Surveillance system typically has a lower total operating cost than a conventional analog CCTV system. In most cases, an IP network infrastructure does already exist so that a network video application can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure.  Wired or wireless networking solutions are also much cheaper than coaxial and fiber optic cable for analog CCTV systems. The administrative as well as equipment costs are lower as back-end storage applications that can be purchased off the shelve basically everywhere in the world.
