  • Electrical connection:

– Link-up is established via an external connection box included
in the scope of supply. (Assembly should be carried out in a
non-Ex area!)
– Terminal box: Primary 100-230 V 50/60Hz, secondary 12 V DC
Total power draw: 7.5 W (incl. camera)
– Protection class: IP 40

Supply voltage: 12 V DC (supplied by the power adapter unit)
Rated power: up to 5 W

• Control line:
– Coaxial cable with four cores and PUR sheathing
– Length: up to 100 m (between camera and terminal box)

•Weight: 3.2 kg without control line

Similar to the internationally renowned Lumistar luminaires, the camera is secured to the cover flange of a circular sight glass fitting (to DIN 28120 or similar) using the hinged bracket included in the scope of supply (hinged bracket – 1.4301).
Alternatively, the special camera head can be mounted by way of a flanged adapter.

• Illumination:
-If there is not sufficient natural light in the vessel, an appropriately dimensioned Lumistar luminaire can be additionally installed.
– A separate arrangement consisting of light glass and camera glass is a further option for consideration. This combination depends on the process and the reactor size as well as on the surface of the vessel, the medium in question, and the angle of incidence.
– Consistently uniform illumination should be ensured.

Similar to the internationally renowned Lumiglas luminaires, the camera system can be attached to the cover flange of a sight glass fitting using a hinged bracket. If the standard illumination of the process is not sufficient, an additional Lumiglas luminaire can be attached if fitting allows.
