HODDESDON, England, 30 April 2009. Premier Electronics Ltd. in Hoddesdon, England, is introducing the Hurricane security infrared camera for digital video surveillance that combines a microbolometric thermal viewernight vision technology, plus a CCD camera for daytime vision in one bore-sighted unit.
This un-cooled surveillance CCD camera with infrared detector system collects light in the 8-to-12-micron spectral band to penetrate through smoke, smog, dust, and water vapor.
These thermal cameras are for monitoring sensitive locations or observing potential trouble spots in applications involving perimeter surveillance of military bases, national borders, airport boundaries, pipelines, oil terminals, power stations, communications transmitters, prisons, and other sensitive sites.
Hurricane can be pole, PZT or vehicle mounted for security operations; the unit can detect a human at night from a mile and a half away. These systems are small and lightweight, use relatively low power and have a long MTBF.
The cameras operate in temperatures from Operational temperature range is -30 to 50 degrees Celsius. The FCB-EX980 camera combines a 26 times zoom and Auto ICR capability with a 1/4 type EXView HAD CCD for high sensitivity in low light environments.
The FCB-EX980 camera has a 26x lens that is "tele-shifted" toward the telephoto end of the zoom range. Camera control is via RS422, VISCA protocol 9.6, 19.2, 38.4 kilobits per second, stop bit, 14 bit. For more information contact Premier Electronics online at www.premierelect.co.uk.
