May 1, 2012 - PRLog -- The system was constructed using the same technology as their offshore subsea and downhole cameras.  The crane boom camera can be installed on virtually any type of crane operating in any environment.  The system is supplied with a robust mounting bracket and back-up safety wire link, which prevents the camera from falling even in the unlikely event of bracket failure.

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 ( includes the CamScan®, a featured-packed LED pan-and-tilt downhole camera, and the MultiCam®, a high-quality disposable camera for subsea installations.

For offshore bespoke engineering solutions (, Claxton Engineering based in Great Yarmouth, Aberdeen and Dubai have a proven record of ensuring swift, safe resolutions in response to unforeseen operating challenges.  They also holds a vast inventory of offshore rental tools, adaptors and equipment and with a large stock means many items can be supplied with 100% back up and immediate call-off.
