Drill sites, oil rigs, and chemical plants around the globe face the challenge of providing workplace safety and security while lowering operational risk and complying with regulations. The constant threat of fires, explosions, extreme temperatures, and other hazards continuously loom over every industrial site. Pelco’s
line of rugged outdoor video security solutions help eliminate these risks by improving operational excellence and ensuring employee safety throughout the facility.
Explosion-proof cameras are a necessity when overseeing operations and controlling processes in hazardous locations, with risks of explosion due to the presence of flammable liquids, gasses or dust. Cameras such as the ExSite Enhanced Explosion Proof
camera series from Pelco are designed to endure these intense environments, which allow site operators to monitor people, vehicles, and equipment in any lighting condition.“The Pelco system monitors daily operations, as well as helps with preventive maintenance for field equipment,” notes Lic. Antonio Díaz Ramón, Director General at Neurosystems. “Powerful zoom lens capabilities allow our personnel to evaluate equipment and situations before sending someone out to the location.”
Combined with intelligent video management systems, energy production companies have the ability to detect and prevent threats with real-time alerts and advanced video data analytics. Pelco’s VideoXpert
delivers an intuitive design that effortlessly displays critical security and video data to enable oil and gas security teams to help make informed decisions based on the most relevant security. VideoXpert’s user interface, designed to be customizable and performance-oriented, is “easy for beginners and powerful for experienced operators,” says Todd Dunning, Director of product management for video security and access control at Pelco, a Motorola Solutions company. “The solution can also be easily scaled for multiple cameras or users, with no downtime. The platform is also trusted and secure, employing cybersecurity best practices like RMF, TLS 1.2, and FIPS 140-2.” Equipped with Pelco Smart Analytics
, these explosion-proof video security solutions can also provide high accuracy and detection, classifying people or vehicles and critical equipment for quicker response times. “By utilizing visual situational awareness, we can make sure to be ready and properly equipped for whatever may arise,” Ramón states. With Pelco’s VideoXpert and ExSite Enhanced cameras paired with Pelco Smart Analytics all operating in cadence, energy companies like Neurosystems can ensure the health and safety of employees, while simultaneously safeguarding infrastructure and assets from risks.
The disruption of a main energy source in any upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas company can be catastrophic. Every operation requires comprehensive security planning and technology systems that can enhance the capabilities of security personnel. With the right security technology, oil and gas facilities can be aware and practice a proactive security posture to mitigate threats to critical facilities and assets, concentrating efforts on achieving situational awareness and increasing real-time response to emergencies. Pelco’s ExSite Enhanced Explosion Proof camera series and their wide range of oil and gas security solutions help these businesses maximize their on-site security and achieve full health and safety compliance to better protect employees, assets, and the natural environment.
