ThermoVision 2000/3000 MS
Thermal imaging cameras with cooled detector for long range security and surveillance
The ThermoVision 2000/3000 multi-sensor integrate the long range, long wave imaging systems found in the ThermoVision 2000/3000 with a powerful daylight sensor, GPS, advanced mapping software, and optionally a laser rangefinder. An array of advanced functions and options are available to meet the most demanding needs. Just like for the common versions the user can choose between 320 x 240 pixels or 640 x 480 pixels detectors. Also the sensors can either be fixed mounted or optionally be installed on a Pan/Tilt system to increase situational awareness.
ThermoVision 2000/3000 MS Specifications
ThermoVision 2000 / 3000 offers extreme long range detection and excellent image quality, in the darkest of nights, through smoke and dust. Both thermal imaging cameras are extremely suited for border and coastal surveillance but also for mid-range threat detection.
Both thermal imaging cameras are also available as a multi-sensor. They can be equipped with a daylight camera, a GPS unit, digital magnetic compass and optionally, a laser range finder.
Cooled QWIP detector
Both the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 are equipped with a cooled Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP). A thermal imaging camera with a cooled detector gives you the advantage that you can see and detect potential threats much further away than with an uncooled detector. But there is more. Objects which are at a close distance can be seen with much more detail. You can see what people are carrying. There is no need anymore to send someone out in the field to check things out since small details can clearly be seen on the thermal image.
Choice of image quality
320 x 240 pixels or 640 x 480 pixels The ThermoVision 2000 is equipped with a QWIP detector offering crisp thermal images of 320 x 240 pixels. Users that want to see the smallest of detail and are demanding the best possible image quality can choose the ThermoVision 3000. This thermal imaging camera is also equipped with a QWIP detector but delivers images of 640 x 480 pixels. This is a four times better image quality than a 320 x 240 detector. It allows the user to see more detail and detect more and smaller objects from a farther distance.
Triple field of view optics
Both the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 are equipped with triple field of view optics. A wide angle lens offering a wide field of view, a medium field of view lens and a narrow field of view lens. Both systems have the capability to switch from one lens to another within a fraction of a second. The wide angle lens will give you excellent situational awareness. When a potential threat is detected you can ,easily switch to the medium field of view lens to have a closer look at the situation or even to the extremely narrow field of view lens so that you can see the smallest of details. This way operators can see farther recognize more detail and react more quickly to security threats.
Advanced image processing
The ThermoVision 3000 contains Advanced Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE). This assures clear, properly contrasted thermal images. It provides high quality thermal imaging in any night or daytime environmental conditions.
Both the ThermoVision 2000 / 3000 contain an exclusive auto focus feature which delivers crisp, clear images at the press of a button or whenever fields of view are changed. The system allows you to experience better situational awareness in the wide field of view, while maintaining detailed recognition capabilities in the narrow field of view.
Easy and fast to install
Both cameras incorporate easily with common power and video interfaces found in existing and new security systems. They can be easily integrated into any existing infrastructure providing early detection and visibility 24/7 all the year round. The images from the 320 x 240 pixels or 640 x 480 pixels detector can be displayed on virtually any existing display that accepts composite video.
Both systems are configured to be either fixed mounted or field transportable for fast deployment. They can be mounted on a standard tripod. A single operator can set up the system in minutes, making it ideal for mobile operations and quick deployments.
Designed for use in harsh environments
The ThermoVison 2000 / 3000 are extremely rugged systems. Their vital core is protected against humidity and water. They both operate between -32°C and +55°C.
Easy-to-use, fast, precision “Pan/Tilt”
Optionally, the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 can be mounted on a rugged Pan/Tilt system. Intuitive joystick operation allows the operator to see 360° horizontal and -+/-35° vertically, offering superb situational awareness.
Radar Connection – “Slew to cue”
If installed on a Pan/Tilt mechanism, the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 can be connected to a radar system. If the radar detects an object, the camera 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. Thanks to he precision, fast , Pan/Tilt system, the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 slew up to 65° / sec This means that within 1 second the camera head will turn 65°. It allows for easy tracking and following of as moving objects.
Multiple installation options
Various options exist to connect the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 300 and integrate the in your existing systems. The ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 can be configured for stand alone use as par of network or in hybrid configuration wit local and network based control: Analog configuration: Simply connect the ThermoVision 2000 and ThermoVision 3000 over RS-232 or S-422 to the remote control panel. A video cable can be connected to any existing display that accepts composite video. TCP/IP configuration: The ThermoVision 2000 / 3000 can be integrated in any existing TCP IP network and controlled over a PC . No need to add an extra cable. Using this configuration, you can monitor all activity in a protected area over the internet. Even when you are thousands of kilometers away.
Powerful daylight imaging camera
The sensors feature a powerful, sensitive daylight camera with excellent zoom and color quality for additional target identification when conditions permit. Displaying both the thermal image and the daylight image at the same time is also possible.
Advanced Global Positioning System (GPS)
The sensors are equipped with and an advanced GPS. This way the systems will know where they are located. This can be extremely important when the multi-sensors are installed on moving equipment or when they are used as portable systems.
Digital Magnetic compass
A built-in digital magnetic compass, allows determining in which direction the ThermoVision 2000 / 3000 sensors are pointing.
Laser range finder
Optionally the multi-sensor versions of the ThermoVision 2000 / 3000 can be equipped with an eye safe laser range finder. Combined with the GPS systems and the electromagnetic compass, it will allow you to exactly determine where a suspected object is located and how for it is away.
When installed on a Pan/Tilt, the sensors can be programmed to scan an entire area automatically. Different spots that need to be monitored periodically can be preset. The system will scan the predefined areas automatically. This not only ensures that the entire area is being monitored but also reduces operator workload.
