Secure Hazardous Areas with 2M Technology’s Custom Explosion-Proof Housings for Cisco Meraki Security Cameras

Hazardous areas have an increased risk of explosions due to the presence of flammable or combustible materials. The use of electrical equipment, such as security cameras, in these environments is dangerous, as they can potentially ignite explosions. While explosion-proof cameras prevent such incidents, the available options in the current market are limited, making it difficult to find a camera with all the desired features and specifications. That’s why at 2M Technology, we offer custom explosion-proof housings. With our enclosures, you can convert any security camera, including those from Cisco Meraki, into an explosion-proof camera that can be used in hazardous locations rated as Class I, Division 1 or Class I, Division 2.

Classification of Hazardous Areas

Hazardous areas are locations “where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings.” Since these areas are so volatile, strict regulations on electrical equipment are necessary to prevent fatal accidents. Regular electronic devices may produce heat or sparks that could ignite something in the atmosphere and cause an explosion. For this reason, all electrical items used in hazardous areas must be IECEx (global standards) or ATEX (EU standards) certified to ensure that their usage will not cause any explosion, including surveillance devices.

In the United States, hazardous areas are categorized into three classes, with each class being further organized into two divisions. The classes are based on the type of explosive or ignitable substances that may be present in that area. Divisions are set according to the likelihood that a hazardous substance is present in an explosive or ignitable quantity. This classification system helps each area determine what standards their electrical equipment must meet.

I – Flammable vapor or gas may be present
II – Combustible dust may be present
III – Ignitable fibers or flyings may be present
– Ignitable concentrations of hazards exist under normal operation conditions.
– Ignitable concentrations of hazards are handled, processed, or used, but are normally confined and can only escape in cases of abnormal operation conditions.

Custom Explosion-Proof Housings for Cisco Meraki Cameras from 2M Technology

At 2M Technology, we specialize in designing and manufacturing custom explosion-proof housings approved for use in hazardous locations classified as Class I, Division 1 or Class I, Division 2. These enclosures contain any electrical sparks that the camera may emit, preventing ignition with the surrounding environment and subsequently, explosions. With our service, you can transform any Cisco Meraki security camera into an explosion-proof surveillance solution. We can create custom explosion-proof housings for the following Cisco Meraki cameras:

Our Process

You can get a custom explosion-proof housing for any Cisco Meraki security camera in just four steps:

  1. The client sends us a sample of the Cisco Meraki camera or a rough drawing with the necessary technical specifications.
  2. Our team of engineers designs the housing in accordance to ATEX or UL standards, tailoring the fit to the dimensions of the Cisco Meraki camera. This process can take 6-8 weeks.
  3. After the client approves the final enclosure design, it is sent to production, which can last 3-4 weeks.
  4. The finished Cisco Meraki housing undergoes a strict quality inspection before being packed and delivered to the client.

We’ve already designed custom explosion-proof housings for a few Cisco Meraki cameras, which you can find in the table above. Since we’ve already made the design, it can be sent straight to production. This means you won’t have to go through the whole designing process, shortening your wait time to just 3-4 weeks.

Our custom explosion-proof housings give you the flexibility to use any Cisco Meraki camera in any environment, even hazardous areas.
