Bosch Security Systems Inc. announced firmware version 1.1 for the MIC Series 612 Thermal Cameras, which adds a thermal temperature change alarm. Available on the standard resolution MIC Series 612 Thermal Cameras, the new feature will trigger an alarm if the temperature of an object within the view of the camera is outside a defined threshold. It helps to improve safety and process monitoring by automating alarm and video verification of critical systems for oil and gas extraction and production sites, power generation facilities, and other critical infrastructure applications.
Customers can set multiple high and low temperature spot meter inputs and wire outputs to an external alarm or audio device, programmable logic controller, or to a PC-based monitoring and control system to alert operators to abnormal conditions. This integration ensures personnel are instantly notified of potential safety concerns or equipment malfunctions and allows them to quickly verify problems and identify locations via video.
The MIC Series 612 is a ruggedized, dual optical/thermal pan-tilt-zoom camera. It combines a high quality 36x zoom optical day/night camera module and an un-cooled, long wavelength thermal imager side-by-side within the housing. This allows customers to simultaneously view high quality color or monochrome images and capture video of heat producing objects, or to switch between the two modes at the touch of a button.
The IK10-rated vandal- and corrosion-resistant design includes an IP 68 / NEMA 6P certified aluminum casing with a long-life silicone wiper to provide uncompromised performance in the most challenging surveillance conditions.
