Sail-World.com : FLIR release cutting-edge M-Series night vision camera
FLIR release cutting-edge M-Series night vision camera

'FLIR M-618 CS'    FLIR
FLIR Systems has released the latest in its class leading M-Series maritime thermal night vision cameras – the gyro-stabilised M-618CS – which it says has cutting edge features never before offered at this price point.

Housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure that provides continuous 360° pan and +/-90° tilt capability, the M-618CS provides horizon to horizon coverage and incorporates cutting-edge Ethernet connectivity for easy installation and control.

The active gyro-stablisation provides steady imagery even in rough seas - critical to getting the most of the unit’s long range cameras.

Packed with features never before available in the M-Series range the M-618CS high-resolution thermal imager now also comes with a colour TV camera.

Other key features include:

• High resolution thermal night vision – 640 X 480 resolution, along with 2x and 4x E-Zoom - delivers clear, detailed images from farther away than you ever thought possible – even in total darkness.

• Extended range performance –the 35mm thermal lens in the M-618CS can detect small vessels from more than two (2) nautical miles away giving you more time to see and avoid potentially dangerous situations.

• Colour TV camera with 10x optical zoom – continuous zoom can match the thermal camera’s e-zoom for easy operation when switching between cameras.



About thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is the use of cameras constructed with specialty sensors that 'see' thermal energy emitted from an object.

Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected. It’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or 'heat' radiation.

Based on temperature differences between objects, thermal imaging produces a clear image. It is an excellent tool for predictive maintenance, building inspections, research & development and automation applications. It can see in total darkness, in the darkest of nights, through fog, in the far distance and through smoke. It is also used for security and surveillance, maritime, automotive, firefighting and many other applications.
