MAXIMUS MVXHigh performance ex-proof Day/Night camera





The explosion-protected MAXIMUS MVX is perfect for effective video surveillance and process control in harsh settings where the presence of gases or flammable dust can create a potentially explosive environment, a reality often found in the oil and gas industries or marine and industrial sectors.

The Day/Night high-resolution camera, with sensor 1/4” and motorised 36x zoom for easier setup, ensures superior image quality even in low lighting and difficult environmental conditions.


Certifications for use in Zones 1 and 2, IIC T5 and T6 Group (Gas) and in Zones 21 and 22, IIIC T100°C and T85°C Group (Dust)
