Thermal and Visible Light Sensors Combined In Rugged PTZ Unit

Melsecure International : 13 September, 2010  (New Product)
The Domehawk IR Thermal camera from MEL Secure Systems has been designed to provide round the clock surveillance capability in one rugged camera equipped with thermal, IR and colour imaging technology
Thermal and Visible Light Sensors Combined In Rugged PTZ Unit
MEL Secure Systems has launched Domehawk IR Thermal, a new rugged CCTV camera that combines thermal imaging, infra red (IR), colour and mono lenses in a single unit. It is the world's first camera system to integrate these three technologies utilising FLIR TAU 320 thermal technology and will deliver total protection around the clock in harsh and challenging environments for a wide range of high security applications including government facilities and border control.

Domehawk IR Thermal is a continuous rotation, rugged PTZ camera that is fitted with thermal imaging, IR and Day/Night camera modules. It offers exceptional quality and reliability and it virtually silent in operation with 36:1 optical zoom and a 35mm Germanium lens to deliver high quality thermal pictures with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels whilst high performance IR LEDs give night vision at ranges up to 90 metres.

According to Peter Druzyc, Managing Director of MEL Secure Systems: "Domehawk IR Thermal is a powerful camera system that integrates all the technologies needed to deliver total protection around the clock in a wide range of high security applications."

The optically flat glass windows are distortion free, giving brighter and clearer images at higher zoom ranges, detecting human presence at over 1km in thermal mode, and allowing greater installation flexibility. The camera also has a fitted wiper, with washer options, to clear any accumulated dirt and water enabling effective operation in the most adverse weather conditions.

MEL Secure Systems' new camera has exceptionally low power consumption and can operate from a 12 volt battery giving an operational life in excess of 200 hours before needing to replace or recharge the battery. It can be operated from a control room environment, control case or hand held unit allowing for easy on-site setup and operation. With full multi-protocol integration, it is compatible with most leading DVR's, Matrices and IP Systems. Transmission is via COFDM Video and UHF Telemetry enabling high quality, interference-free images to be received at distances of up to 4km without requiring line of sight. This also ensures low end-to-end latency making it faster than IP-based systems and easier for operators to follow specific events with a PTZ joystick.

The use of ultra-narrowband also provides exceptional range and video quality in high multipath environments regardless of line of sight as well as enabling users to co-locate more channels in the increasingly crowded RF spectrum. The MEL Dual Thermal camera is available in a wide range of frequencies including 1.0 MHz ultra-narrowband, 1.3, 2.4 and 5.8 GHz as well as 300-400 MHz UHF. It can also be used with IP networks and has a 3G option enabling the camera to be monitored or images downloaded from any computer with internet access or mobile phone.

Domehawk IR Thermal is IP67 compliant with a housing cast from hard anodised aluminium and powder coated to provide protection from damage such as scratching, oxidation or attack from solvents making it vandal resistant and suitable for use in most environments.
