Pelco Introduces ExSite Explosion-Proof Video Security Positioning Systems

Clovis, CA -- Pelco has introduced the ExSite family of explosion-proof video security positioning systems. With ExSite, Pelco offers an innovative series of integrated positioning systems designed to meet stringent hazardous location requirements for North American and International markets.

ExSite not only combines a receiver, pan/tilt, and enclosure in a single, easy-to-install system, but also includes an Integrated Optics Package (IOP). The IOP features an auto-focus camera and lens module with programmable features and a day/night option. Together with ExSite's exclusive software and industry leading performance, they are ideal for a variety of applications within a wide range of extreme environments, including marine applications. Typical hazardous locations include such industries as oil refining, transport and storage, chemical processing, pharmaceutical, and food production facilities.

The ExSite Series are innovative integrated positioning systems that meet stringent explosion-proof requirements. The ExSite Series not only combine a receiver, pan/tilt, and enclosure in a single, easy-to-install system, but also includes an Integrated Optics Package (IOP). The Integrated Optics Package contains an auto-focus camera and lens module with programmable features. For a wide range of applications, the ExSite Series feature a choice of two different IOP cameras: a high-resolution camera with LowLight color technology and 22X zoom lens (22X optical, 10X digital), and a high-resolution day/night camera with a removable infrared cut filter and 23X zoom lens (23X optical, 10X digital).

The electro-polished 316L stainless steel construction makes the ExSite Series ideal for all kinds of environmental conditions including marine applications. The system has an absolute operating temperature range of -60 (C) to 60 degrees (C). Within two hours after power-up, the entire unit can de-ice and be operational from a temperature of -25 (C).

The ExSite Series include an optional window wiper. The wiper is completely integrated into the enclosure and does not interfere with the viewing range of the system. The wiper can be programmed to delay between wipes and to automatically shut off after a specified period. A built-in heater, window defroster/defogger, sun shroud, and blower are standard features on the ExSite Series. All units also include three auxiliary output relays that can be programmed for a variety of uses.

The ExSite Series variable pan and tilt speeds range from 0.1 to 40 degrees per second in manual pan, tilt, and preset mode. The ExSite Series is capable of 360 degrees of continuous pan rotation. The tilt range allows for horizontal viewing of -90 to +90 degrees. There are 80 preset positions with a preset accuracy of ±0.1 degree. The systems are available with an input voltage of 24 VAC or with a power source of 100-240 VAC. The ExSite Series also have a power-up recovery mode that allows the user to specify what operation the system will resume whenever the power is cycled. ExSite Series feature built-in system memory in the power module to store camera and location-specific pan/tilt settings, including labels, presets, patterns, and zones. These settings are automatically downloaded if a new pan and tilt body is installed.
