IR Revolution 360
HGH Infrared Systems, manufacturers of advanced infrared cameras and a variety of thermal imaging products and systems, has introduced the IR Revolution 360, a 20° vertical, 360° horizontal field of view (FOV) panoramic infrared vision system for security and surveillance. The sensor contains approximately 3 million pixels (10,000 x 288). This advanced thermal imager delivers clear, high-resolution imagery via the rotating head that scans a full 360° rotation per second. Other features include auto detection and tracking, a motion alarm, and an area-of-interest zoom.
The detector is based on mercury cadmium telluride (HeCdTe) imaging technology and operates in the long-wave infrared (LWIR) region (8-12µm). The detection range, without image distortion, is up to 1km for a human figure, up to 1.5km for an automobile, and up to 6km for a boat or ship.
The infrared camera delivers a wide area coverage and an ultra-fast image rate. Image control and display software is PC-compatible (XP Professional) and included with the camera package.
The camera is housed in a compact, environmentally-sealed case that can be easily mounted on a security vehicle, a building, or on the ground. Applications include: perimeter security; force protection; passive surveillance for coastal and border areas; search and rescue; early detection of forest fires; and airport traffic monitoring among others.
