General Step of purchase
Let us know that you are interested in our solution.
We are happy to provide more information to answer your questions.
We will provide a detailed explanation of how our overall solution works and how it can help you solve your problems.
We will visit your site and inspect your operating equipment to demonstrate how our OGI camera works at an actual oil and gas production facility.
We will provide a price quotation and other supporting documents as agreed upon by both parties.
We engage in an agreement.

- Is zooming available?
- Yes, you can digitally zoom up to an object from the tablet, but optical zoom is not available on the camera.
- Is the camera intrinsically safe?
- Neither the camera nor the tablet are intrinsically safe.
- Which video file format will the videos be in?
- It will be saved as a wmv (windows media video) format.
- What is the life of the camera battery?
- The lifetime depends on the environment that its used in but a customer can expect 500 separate charges before it will require replacement.
- What is the video storage capacity of the tablet?
- Up to 110 hrs of video can be stored before the need arises to transfer data on to a separate storage drive.
- What is the available recording time before the battery is fully depleted?
- The camera can keep recording up until the tablet battery is fully depleted (which should last 5 hrs maximum and 6 hrs for the camera) or until the HD capacity is used up (which should allow for 110 hrs of stored video time).
Note: Since we supply the customer with 2 tablet batteries and 2 camera batteries, this provides for 10 hrs of field operational use.
- Can the camera visualize hydrogen?
- Can the camera visualize poisonous gases?
- Can the camera visualize radiation?
- How far away can the camera detect a gas leak from?
- The camera can visualize a leak from up to 300 ft (100 m) away, dependent on environmental conditions (i.e. type of gas, amount of leaking gas, and outside temperature).
On-site demo's are available to check the camera performance at your facility.
- Can the camera detect the amount of a leaking gas?
- Can the camera display the temperature of the subject?
- Yes, the camera can display a temperature colorization.
- What does the color of the visualized gas plume mean?
- The colorization signifies the intensity and concentration of the leaking gas.
- Can the camera specify the type of gas that's leaking?
- Can the camera distinguish leaking gas from heat?
- No. It is recommended that a comprehensive review of the actual gas leakage is made from the multiple image views (High Sensitivity mode, Gas Enhanced mode, Thermal mode, etc.) provided by this system.
- What's included with the camera?
- The camera comes with a protective travel case, tripod, USB cable, user's guide, and the tablet.
- Is the tripod necessary to use the camera?
- Yes. The camera has to be stable in order to detect and remove non-gas interference and provide the superior detection sensitivity.
How to use
- Can the camera be mounted on to a drone?
- No. The camera is not designed to be mounted on drone.
- Is a training session available?
- Yes, please contact us about setting up training
- Are you available for on site demo's?
- Yes, send in an inquiry form and check "Request on site Demo" on the form.
Please note that depending on the location, our sales assistant may not have access to the requested site.
Strength of GMP01
- How is the GMP01 different from a conventional OGI camera?
- One of the biggest advantages of the GMP01 is our camera’s gas enhancement function.
A conventional OGI camera highlights not only gas, but also all of the other things moving in the background. This can include human, vehicle and bird movement. So, inspectors have to distinguish gas leaks from all of the random movement in the background.
On the other hand, Konica Minolta’s GMP01 camera has a unique function which can distinguish gas leaks from moving objects and displays only the gas leak. Our camera then colorizes the visualized leak and overlays it on a visual image. This makes it easier for inspectors to identify a gas leak.
