FLIR - the pioneer thermal imaging products manufacturer. The company is pleased to present its new thermal camera (TCX) has outdoor mini bullet design. This camera will reveal at this year's IFSEC exhibition in London. The FLIR TCX thermal mini bullet camera adopts the FLIR's revolutionary Lepton camera core which delivers high-contrast thermal video, and supports high-performance built-in video motion detection.
Lepton is an affordable thermal image technology which utilizes the revolutionary longwave infrared (LWIR) image sensor. Compared with traditional thermal cameras, the Lepton is ten times less expensive.
With a resolution of 80 × 60 active pixels, Lepton is bringing thermal imaging to a new generation of electronic devices for work, play, and mission-critical applications. And Lepton is available in three models: 50° FOV w/o shutter, 25° FOV w/o shutter, and 50° FOV with a shutter for manual calibration.
The newly developed TCX thermal security camera is the affordable thermal imaging camera for commercial security applications. The camera can outperforms traditional security camera by offering advantage of providing thermal video in complete darkness without any illumination. Thermal camera makes pictures from heat, not visible light. Heat (also called infrared, or thermal, energy) and light are both parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, but a camera that can detect visible light won’t see thermal energy, and vice versa. Thermal cameras detect more than just heat though; they detect tiny differences in heat – as small as 0.01°C – and display them as shades of grey in black and white TV video.
Additionally, TCX thermal bullet camera can provide flexible integration in both indoor and outdoor environment, it even can withstand extreme temperature as cold as -40°C. The FLIR TCX is ideal for ensuring of commercial business, public buildings, industrial facilities. The camera features with intrusion detection and accurate video alarm verification, FLIR software supports lighting control, people counting, retail traffic flow, and queue management, and enables a whole range of other applications including:
Founded in 1978, FLIR is the pioneer in thermal imaging technology. The company designs, develops, manufactures, markets and distributes thermal imaging systems, visible-light imaging systems, locator systems, measurement and diagnostic systems, and advanced threat detection systems. "The world's Sixth Sense" is the slogan from FLIR. It has vision to enhance public safety and well-being, increase energy efficiency.
At IFSEC 2015, FLIR will also bring other recent developed products, which include its full line of security cameras, video recorders and software. FLIR FX is one of them, it's an versatible High-Definition camera supports Wi-Fi, also integrates cloud-based analytics (RapidRecap). The FLIR FX is suitable for a wide range of security applications such as indoor or outdoor home monitoring, small business monitoring. Similar to other security cameras, this camera comes with smartphone App, it can stream live video to smartphone, tablet or PC.
