Thermal imaging cameras are finding their way into more and more security installations. No other  technology than thermal imaging lets you see intruders in total darkness, in practically all weather  conditions. No other technology offers you a longer range performance than thermal imaging.

Still some security professionals are hesitant to put the power of thermal imaging at work. Often this has to do with the price of a thermal imaging camera. It is indeed still a bit more expensive than a CCTV camera.

With the new FC-Series S thermal imaging cameras price is no longer an obstacle to put the power of thermal imaging at work in your security network. The FC-Series S are low cost but industrial quality thermal imaging cameras in a compact package.

Choice of image quality

FC-Series S thermal imaging cameras are available in 320 × 240, and high-resolution 640 × 480 formats. To make sure that there is an FC-Series S camera for every security application FLIR Systems offers a wide variety of lenses. Longer lenses have a narrower field of view and allow you to spot intruders from farther away.

Wide dynamic range

Delivers high contrast thermal images in the most diverse conditions. Even when the sun is in the field of view. But also in cold and low contrast thermal scenes. Ideal for working together with video analytics that need properly contrasted images in order not to generate false alarms.

Easy installation

The FC-Series S is a hybrid camera. Equipped with Power over Ethernet (PoE), communication and power are supplied with only one cable. The FC-Series S can be integrated in any existing TCP/IP network and controlled over a PC. No additional cables are required. The FC-Series S comply with the ONVIF 2.0 standard and can therefore easily be connected in a network to work together with other sensors.

Installation in legacy networks, power in / video out is also possible.

Designed for use in harsh environments

FLIR FC-Series S are extremely rugged systems. Their vital core is well protected, up to IP66 and has a unique operating temperature range of -50ºC to +70ºC (continuous operation).

Multiple channels of streaming digital video are available in H.264, MPEG-4, or M-JPEG formats. Simultaneous digital and composite video output is possible.

FLIR Sensors Manager software included

Each FC-Series S camera comes with a single sensor copy of FLIR Sensors Manager. This intuitive software allows users to manage and control an FC-Series S camera in a TCP/IP network.

Extended warranty

FLIR FC-Series S thermal imaging cameras are covered by a 3 year warranty period on the entire camera and a 10 year warranty on the detector after product registration at www.flir.com

FLIR D-Series

The FLIR D-Series

The D-Series outdoor dome enclosure provides precision pan/tilt control while providing fully programmable scan patterns, radar slew-to-cue, and slew-to-alarm functionality. Fully enabled for control and operation over IP and serial networks.  The D-series combine a thermal imaging camera with a color CCD camera. This makes them the perfect replacement for day/night dome cameras, providing clear 24/7 imaging capability in an attractive, discrete dome-style enclosure.

The new FLIR D-Series are a lot more compact. TCP/IP compatible electronics are integrated in the camera and no longer in a separate box. This also means that the FLIR D-Series can now be can be mounted in ball up and ball down position, giving you more flexibility

Choice of image quality

D-Series systems deploy a 640 x 480 or 320 × 240 pixel thermal imaging camera. To make sure that there is a D-Series for every security application FLIR Systems offers a wide variety of lenses. Longer lenses have a narrower field of view and allow you to spot intruders from further away.

All versions are equipped with a long range daylight/low light camera. The daylight camera offers an 36x optical zoom.

Wide dynamic range

Delivers high contrast thermal images in the most diverse conditions. Even when the sun is in the field of view. But also in cold and low contrast thermal scenes. Ideal for working together with video analytics that need properly contrasted images in order not to generate false alarms.

Precise Pan/Tilt mechanism

All D-Series thermal imaging cameras come with a precision pan/tilt mechanism. It allows the user to rotate the camera 360° continuously and to tilt it +20° to -90°. This drastically increases situational awareness. The Pan/Tilt has 128 preset positions. Ideal if you want to scan an area continuously.

IP control and ONVIF compliance

The D-Series can be integrated in any existing TCP/IP network and controlled over a PC. No additional cables are required. Using this configuration, you can monitor all activity over the network, even when you are thousands of kilometers away. The D-Series are fully ONVIF compliant.

Multiple channels of streaming digital video are available in H.264, MPEG-4, or M-JPEG formats. Simultaneous digital and composite video output is standard.

Radar Connection – “Slew to cue”

The D-Series can be connected by the integrator to a radar system. If the radar detects an object, the D-Series will automatically turn in the right direction and give you a visual image so that you can instantly see what the blip on the radar screen really means.

FLIR Sensors Manager

Each D-Series camera comes with a single sensor copy of FLIR Sensors Manager. This intuitive software allows users to manage and control a D-Series camera in a TCP/IP network.
