THERMAL IMAGING & DIGITAL CAMERAS
The TIS 640 system consists of two unique cameras: a thermal imaging camera that scans and maps environments within the infrared spectrum, and a standard digital camera that delivers images in the visible spectrum. This makes it easy for firefighters to compare simultaneous feeds and plan their approaches accordingly.
The system is ensconced in a protective casing designed for rough conditions. These durable packages secure a high degree of IP67 protection, delivering a dustproof and watertight instrument. In fact, the TIS 640 is water resistant for 30 minutes at up to one meter. Moreover, the casing is specially designed to provide proper heat permeability throughout the thermal imaging camera.
The TIS 640 is heat resistant from -20° C to +60° C, ensuring both high temperature stability and exceptional measurement accuracy. Its protective window is made of germanium, which has been proven to enhance the function of LWIR thermal imaging cameras.
The PTZ system can be easily controlled via a software control unit’s tablet/screen buttons. Each operator can set their own default motor positions, or rely upon the pre-programmed settings, which return the motor to its original position. Subsequently, the operator can display the radiometric images and sequences on his PC and modify them in Workswell’s CorePlayer or ThermoFormat software packages. Operators can even create protocols from the entire set of thermographic images in CorePlayer.
The TIS 640 system offers a suite of pre-set modes that operators can easily reset and edit over the lifetime of their unit. These modes are designed to set-up live transmissions from the thermal imaging camera, and to modify screen presentations. Operators add and remove these settings through the use of only two buttons.
The system’s camera modes enable both automatic and manual temperature range setting. If operators want to set the temperature range manually, they can input their own minimum and maximum temperatures. The TIS 640 also features applied color palettes for thermal images, alarm (isothermal) activation/deactivation, and the color highlighting of imaged temperatures.
The temperature range of the thermal imaging camera can be set to a low temperature range (0-250° C) (32-482 °F) or a high temperature range (50-1000°C) (122-1832 °F). Within each mode, operators can set their own measurement elements in the thermal image, which will display the maximum, minimum and central temperature of the image.
The control tablet, which makes it easy for operators to direct the TIS 640 from the comfort of their vehicle’s cabin, connects to the control computer via remote application. The tablet-based system application delivers a live feed from both cameras at the same time.
