CCTV Center, FLIR System’s appointed security distributor, has added the new D-series, thermal, multi-sensor, networked dome camera to its portfolio. The camera is designed for outdoor, day/night use and provides precise pan/tilt control, whilst offering fully programmable scan patterns, radar slew-to-cue and slew-to-alarm functionality.
The D-Series pan/tilt mechanism includes 360º continuous rotation, tilt from +45º to 180º and 128 preset positions for continual area scanning. The D-series combines two sensor technologies to provide crisp, clear images, in most external light conditions. A 320 x 240 pixel thermal imager is used for situational awareness in any lighting conditions and a colour CCD camera, with 36x optical zoom and day / night capability, provides detailed images.
The D-series has impressive detection and identification range performance. For example, when equipped with a 35mm, 13º field of view, athermal lens, the D-313 will detect a human-sized object at a distance of over 780 metres. The athermal lens ensures images remain in sharp focus, irrespective of environmental temperatures.
Digital and composite video connections are both provided. The D-series is fully TCP / IP and serial network-enabled, for remote control from a PC. Multi-channel digital video streaming is available in H.264, MPEG-4 or M-JPEG formats. Digital Detail Enhancement ensures the images generated from the D-series are high-contrast and optimised for video analytics software.
The D-series is extremely rugged, IP66 rated for protection against dust and moisture ingress and ideal for use in harsh, external environments.
