KARMIEL, Israel, October 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The new EyeCGas Infrared Gas Imaging Camera equipped with a 75 mm lens is the only camera certified for use in Class I Div 2 hazardous locations enabling remote detection and visualization of gas leaks from a great distance

Opgal Optronic Industries, a leading global provider of thermal and long range near IR imaging solutions, announced today a new long-range model of its EyeCGas Infrared Gas Imaging camera, using a 75mm lens. Utilizing its proprietary optical design, the EyeCGas infrared camera enables remote inspection of potentially leaking areas by detecting and visualizing even the smallest gas leaks from hundreds of meters away. EyeCGas is the only gas imaging camera certified for use in Class I Div 2 hazardous locations, meeting ATEX II 3G Ex nL IIC T6, ANSI/ISA-12.12.01, UL1604 and CSA C22.2 No. 213-M1987.

The EyeCGas provides improved operational safety, shortened inspection times, and increased operational efficiency for companies in the oil and gas industry.  EyeCGas users are able to inspect a large area of a facility at a safe distance away from the site of the leak, keeping technicians out of harm's way.  The ability to immediately detect fugitive leaks and GHG emissions reduces their environmental impact and enables timely repairs, leading to shortened inspection times and reduced costs for lost product.  

"The newly introduced 75 mm lens provides stronger magnification with a narrower field of view, thereby enabling gas detection from longer distances even up to hundreds of meters away," said Omer Yanai, Vice President, Gas Imaging Business Unit of Opgal. "We are proud to provide the only certified equipment in the market. The camera is an ideal tool for companies and regulators looking to protect the environment by reducing GHG emissions."
