Teledyne FLIR has launched the A500f and A700f cameras for fire detection and condition monitoring. The ruggedised thermal cameras feature high-temperature detection for extreme environments paired with on-camera analytics and alarm capabilities – ideal for industrial early fire detection or outdoor condition monitoring applications. Along with enhanced spot, area, line, polygon, and polyline analytic functions that improve the definition of areas of interest and object curvatures, the cameras can help commercial and industrial organisations protect assets and improve safety.
The A500f and A700f thermal cameras can identify increased temperatures related to potentially dangerous conditions. If smoke is present, the cameras help provide increased awareness for decision makers to properly assess and address incidents. Both cameras feature Flexible Scene Enhancement (FSX) technology, found on Teledyne FLIR K-Series handheld firefighting devices. The result is an finer-textured image that shows subtler edge details supplied by the embedded visible camera onto the thermal image, enabling operators to recognise objects and people more easily.
The A500f and A700f are also effective tools for pile-burn monitoring, providing automated early warnings for potential issues in waste management facilities or coal collection areas that operate around the clock.
Featuring an IP67-rated housing designed to withstand temperatures between -30° to 50°C (-22° to 112° F), the cameras are designed for harsh environments and discreet enough to deter from theft. In addition, the cameras use a single power-over-Ethernet (PoE) cable for both power and communication, helping to further minimise points of potential failure.
