Greater Range on SR Series of Security Thermal Imaging Cameras

FLIR Systems Ltd : 10 May, 2010  (New Product)
FLIR has extended the reach of its popular fixed mount SR range of thermal imaging cameras for the security surveillance market
Greater Range on SR Series of Security Thermal Imaging Cameras
Thermal imaging cameras are becoming more and more popular for security and surveillance applications. FLIR's SR-Series range of fixed mount thermal imaging cameras has definitely contributed to the success. Extremely affordable, easy to install and to use, they have been incorporated in numerous security networks. Today FLIR Systems is launching a new version of these successful cameras.

As of today, although they still look the same from the outside, all SR-Series come with a new thermal imaging core that will allow the user to see even farther than before. This means that users can now detect targets at longer distances for the same price.

The SR-Series are using the most advanced thermal imaging technology available on the market today. They incorporate an uncooled Vanadium Oxide microbolometer detector producing crisp 320 x 240 pixels thermal images. Users that do not require this high image quality can choose for a 160 x 120 detector.

More pixels allow the user to see more detail and to detect more and smaller objects. Advanced internal camera software delivers a crisp image without the need for user adjustments. It provides high quality thermal imaging in any night- or daytime environmental conditions.

Equipped with a 160 x 120 pixels detector, the SR-Series come in the following models with the following lens options:

- SR-124: 9 mm lens - Field of view: 24°(H) x 20°(V)
- SR-117: 13 mm lens - Field of view: 17°(H) x 14°(V)
- SR-112: 19 mm lens - Field of view: 12°(H) x 10°(V)

The user that chooses for a version of the SR-Series equipped with a 320 x 240 pixels detector has even more choice:

- SR-348: 9 mm lens - Field of view: 48°(H) x 39°(V)
- SR-334: 13 mm lens - Field of view: 34°(H) x 28°(V)
- SR-324: 19 mm lens - Field of view: 24°(H) x 19°(V)
- SR-313: 35 mm lens - Field of view: 13°(H) x 10°(V)
- SR-309: 50 mm lens - Field of view: 9°(H) x 7°(V)
- SR-304: 100 mm lens - Field of view: 4.6°(H) x 3.7°(V)

Longer lenses have a narrower field of view and allow the user to see farther. With the SR-304 you will be able to detect a man-sized target at a distance of over 2 km.

The SR-Series are fixed thermal imaging cameras. They provide crisp, clear thermal imagery in total darkness, light fog or smoke. They feature the same thermal imaging technology found in many of FLIR's most sophisticated security and surveillance systems, but are packaged for users who have mid-range security and surveillance as their primary application.

They include FLIR's advanced image processing techniques which deliver excellent contrast regardless of scene dynamics. Unlike other night vision systems that require low amounts of light to generate an image, the SR-Series needs no light at all. There is no need for the expense or complication of added lighting infrastructure.

The new SR-Series contain the best Vanadium Oxide microbolometer detector technology on the market today. This provides the camera with an excellent sensitivity so that the user is able to see the smallest of details in the image even at long ranges. The image quality is further enhanced through FLIR Systems patented DDE (Digital Detail Enhancement) image processing technology.

Equipped with an "athermal lens", the SR-Series are able to maintain focus no matter what the environmental temperature is. There is no need for user adjustments. Once it is installed, all SR-Series thermal imaging cameras will deliver a sharp, focused image.

The absence of a motorized focus mechanism prevents mechanical breakdowns. The SR-Series do not need any maintenance whatsoever. This is guarantees an extremely low total cost of ownership.

The SR-Series can be easily connected to common power and video interfaces found in existing and new security systems. It can be easily integrated into any existing CCTV infrastructure providing early detection and visibility 24/7 all the year round. The images of the 320 x 240 pixels detector can be displayed on virtually any existing display that accepts composite video.

The SR-Series are extremely rugged systems. Their vital core is well protected, meeting IP66 requirements, against dust and water. The SR-Series operate between -40°C and +55°C. They have a built-in heater which ensures a clear lens and perfect infrared images displayed on your monitor even in extremely cold environments.
