The Lenox Hot Area Camera HD II is designed for safe, real time inspection/monitoring in harsh, extreme heat industrial environments found in foundries, heat treating, steel, glass, cement and paper manufacturing. A rugged, stainless steel housing provides a uniform flow path of cooling water that protects the high-resolution, color CCD video camera and pressurized purge air aids cooling and prevention of dust/deposits forming on the front window/lens. The durable Hot Area Camera HD II is capable of operating in temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) with mechanical pinhole viewing or 300°F (149°C) with front window and can be configured with a variety of lens options. Analog RS170 video output is standard with Ethernet output an option. An AC (100-240V, 50/60Hz) Input power connection is provided by a supplied power cord.

Lenox offers an optional high-efficiency compressed Air Filter System with mounting plate for removing oil, water and particulates ensuring clean, dry purge air for the camera.
