Crane Boom Camera System Makes Crane Operation Safer
The Claxton Crane Boom Camera System was built and designed to assist crane operators with the safe transfer of loads even in 'blind' locations.
The crane camera has unrivalled visual performance with class leading zoom capability whilst remaining simple to both operate and set up. It can be used in daylight or low light without requiring any adjustment as one of the benefits includes auto switching from day to night operation. The robust and compact design makes it suitable for crane cabins and the offshore environment, having been tested in the harshest of North Sea rig conditions.
Launched back in April 2010, the EEx-rated rig camera was built to help rig crane operators to safely monitor the area beneath the crane boom, where loads can often be moved into areas not visible from the crane’s cab. Whilst these cameras for drilling rig cranes and CCTV safety monitoring may use the same rugged components as Claxton’s field-proven subsea cameras they have high-quality, explosion-proof housings.
Dannie Claxton, the technical director for Claxton, said, “Our camera systems were developed to provide superior visual inspection for tieback operations. Providing high performance in such demanding conditions meant our cameras had to be world class right off the bat. Since introducing those first camera systems for tiebacks, we have listened carefully to what operators want and supply improved visual performance, rugged equipment and ease of use.”
Claxton Engineering have been offering subsea camera systems for over 12 years and pioneered features such as high-intensity LED lighting, high-quality housings and plug-and-play installation. The Claxton offshore camera range (http://www.claxtonengineering.com/
