Mobotix: New Thermal Radiometry helps to prevent fire
First MOBOTIX Thermal cameras to create automatic temperature alarms
MOBOTIX has launched a new series of thermal camera products, equipped with a new type of thermal sensing technology to realize automatic events, based on absolute temperature within -40°C to +550°C. This new technology is perfect to generate automatic alarms, defined by temperatures limits or temperature ranges, which is vital to detect potential fire or heat sources. At the same time, MOBOTIX provides a software update free of charge to upgrade existing thermal cameras with thermal spot metering in the image center.
Within the available temperature range of -40°C to +550°C and a thermal sensitivity of 0.05°C (NETD=50mK), different temperature conditions can be easily defined within the new TR (Thermal Radiometry) window or over the whole sensor image with a typical accuracy of ±10°C. Up to 20 multiple temperature events can be defined at the same time. Spot metering, which measures temperature related to 4 pixels at the image center, is also improved in the new thermal TR products with a typical accuracy of ±10°C. These new releases will help to prevent bigger damages in industrial and commercial premises, at manufacturing and logistic sites, recycling facilities, forests, etc.
MOBOTIX Thermal Radiometry (TR) is available in its popular M15, and as a sensor module in the S15 dual camera system. Furthermore, TR is also available as S15 PT-mount sensor head. Both S15 thermal modules can be set up as dual thermal system for most flexible usage or as the perfect combination of thermal and optical sensor technology to ensure the most reliable detection results and visual verification at the same time.
MOBOTIX is a software company with own IP camera products, all made in Germany. In 2005, MOBOTIX launched its first professional video management system which is still being used in thousands of installations around the globe. These even include high-security applications like prisons, airports or soccer stadiums. Since 2000, MOBOTIX IP cameras have been known for their high-quality video performance, long term reliability and low bandwidth consumption thanks to their “decentralized architecture.” The cameras themselves execute video analysis & event detection internally and manage their video ring buffer on a NAS or server by themselves. As a result, MOBOTIX video systems are very reliable and need fewer servers, fewer workstations and less network infrastructure. This reduces the overall system costs as well as the total energy bill.
