EXHC THERMALEx-proof housing for thermal cameras




The EXHC housings are made of a heavy-duty Anticorodal aluminium alloy and are designed to house video cameras installed in explosion-proof environments.

All the external components are powder-painted and guarantee excellent resistance against UV rays, marine environments and any polluting substances in the area of installation.

The cylindrical element of the housing is closed on opposite sides by two flanges and feature two holes for NPT 3/4” cable glands. The video camera housing is equipped with a triple heating element and an optional sunshield.

This housing features germanium glass and is designed for use with thermal video cameras. The renowned properties of the composition of the germanium glass ensure IR transmission with the highest quality lens.


Designed to meet the strictest international standards and to operate in hazardous areas

Solid, non corrosive die-cast aluminium construction
