Industry’s First Certified Camera for Long-Range Gas Leak Detection, Unveiled by Opgal at Gastech 2012
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

Karmiel, Israel | October 4th 2012: 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.”
