Armadex Ex-M OZC 2

ATEX Zone 2 Digital Camera

The ARMADEX Ex-M OZC 2 is an explosion-proof camera designed for use in ATEX Zone 2 (Gas) environments. Notable characteristics include a 5x optical zoom function, robust construction capable of withstanding drops up to 2.1m, resistance to temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius, and dustproof design.

Please note that, due to ATEX Regulations, the xenon flash tube is disabled, but the 6 LED ring light remains functional.


Key Features

  • 5x Optical Zoom Lens: The camera’s optical zoom lens provides clear imaging at 5x magnification, and it also features 8.1x digital zoom functionality.
  • 40.5x Intelligent Zoom: This intelligent zoom function allows users to zoom in up to 40.5 times, making it suitable for various applications such as capturing machinery from a safe distance or inspecting tight spaces.
  • Movie SR+: Advanced Movie SR+ software stabilizes videos and images, ensuring clear and steady results, particularly during on-site inspections.
  • Lightweight and Durable: Weighing just 246 grams, including the battery, the ARMADEX Ex-M OZC 2 is lightweight and resilient. It can withstand drops, operates in temperatures ranging from -10°C to +40°C, is waterproof up to 25m, and is dustproof.
  • Excellent Low-Light Performance: Instead of a flash, the camera utilizes advanced image processing to capture high-quality, well-lit images even in low-light conditions.
  • 6 LED Ring Light: The camera includes a 6 LED ring light that enhances illumination, especially for detailed inspections. Users can control individual LEDs for customized lighting.
  • 4K Recording: The camera offers 4K recording at 30 fps for high-quality imaging. Alternatively, users can opt for 60 fps in HD for smoother videos.


5x Optical Zoom Lens

One of the key benefits that distinguishes the OZC 2 instrinsically safe camera from competitors is the excellent zoom functionality.

The optical zoom lens captures images and video at a 5x zoom level without losing any quality at all. In addition to that the camera’s software is equipped with an 8.1x digital zoom functionality.

Movie SR+

The OZC 2 uses advanced Movie SR+ software to stabilize video and images. This feature is especially useful when conducting video inspections. Users can freely walk around the site and capture all equipment, machinery and surroundings without the video becoming distorted or shaky. This makes for a much more clear and professional material, which can not be matched by the latest generation of smartphones.

Tough, Lightweight Camera Housing

The ARMADEX Ex-M OZC 2 weighs in at only 246 grams, including the battery.

The compact explosion proof camera can withstand drops up to 2.1m, has an operating temperature between -10°C – +40°C, is waterproof up to 25m and dustproof.

4K Recording

4K Recording is available at 30 fps, delivering the highest image quality (20 megapixels).

Another option is to record at 60 fps in HD, making for a smoother video at a slightly reduced per-image quality.

The high-resolution CMOS sensor is combined with a high-performance image processing engine for taking low noise, razor sharp images.
