A specialist in protective enclosures for industrial cameras and laser systems, German manufacturer autoVimation, has further expanded its range of Dolphin camera housings for very demanding hygienic requirements. The Dolphin series now comprises three lengths suitable for compact cameras with cross sections between 29x47mm and 40x40mm.
Up to 218mm long camera assemblies including lens and connectors can be comfortably fitted within. Since the enclosures are made to EHEDG design specifications, direct contact with food and placement in high contamination risk areas are no problem. The housings made of V4A AISI 316L stainless steel can be cleaned with pressure washers.
Electropolished surfaces and a surface roughness of less than 0.8μm reliably prevent bacteria buildup. All seals and cable conduits are FDA-approved and comply with EU regulations 10/2011 or 1935/2004 for use in hygienically sensitive areas in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. The sealing materials feature high chemical and temperature resistance.
They permanently withstand fats, mineral oils as well as aggressive cleaning agents. The enclosures achieve IP69K ingress protection, and the lids feature dual seals for additional safety. The front lid is optionally available in acrylic or BK7 glass. Versatile mounting options and compact dimensions allow for vibration-proof installation of the Dolphin enclosures in any location.
The new rear wall mount enables 360° enclosure rotation and 50mm height adjustment above the mounting surface. The patented Quick-lock/Heat-guide mount provides excellent dissipation to the outer housing and therefore cools the housed camera.
