CorDEX has already built a reputation since it was launched in 2009 in the mining and chemical sectors and now has its sights set on launching new products to the energy industry.

Marcus Halliday, general manager said: "Our explosion proof digital cameras are designed to the highest safety standards and are ideal for use offshore where safety is a top priority and traditional digital cameras are not permitted for danger reasons. We have designed them to be as simple to use as every-day cameras with all the functions you would expect from a top end model and we believe they will be of particular use to HAZOP (health and safety) officers, who need to record incidents."

The company has developed the world’s first handheld digital camera with flash to be certified to the European ATEX standard for explosive equipment for use within an offshore environment. The Centurion XPG is encased in aluminium with a viewfinder made of armoured glass and can capture images up to 10 megapixels, plus moving pictures in AVI format.

Photographs can be instantly viewed and with 2GB of capacity it can store hundreds of images which can be transferred via high speed USB. It also has an in-built strobe flash for use in low light and a rechargeable battery pack.

Other products in the range include the Centurion XP Dual which offers larger memory capacity; interchangeable lenses for high accuracy close up and wide angle imaging and rugged transport case.

Halliday added: "There is nothing out there to rival our cameras and the possibilities for use offshore are endless. Aberdeen is an important strategic location for entry into the energy market and we are gearing up to develop new bespoke products that will be of particular use to oil workers."
