Multi-Sensor thermal security cameras in ultra-compact networked, outdoor dome enclosures The D-Series outdoor dome enclosure provides precision pan/tilt control while providing fully programmable scan patterns, radar slew-to-cue, and slew-to-alarm functionality. Fully enabled for control and operation over IP and serial networks. The D-series combine a thermal imaging camera with a color CCD camera. This makes them the perfect replacement for day/night dome cameras, providing clear 24/7 imaging capability in an attractive, discrete dome-style enclosure. The new FLIR D-Series are a lot more compact. TCP/IP compatible electronics are integrated in the camera and no longer in a separate box. This also means that the FLIR D-Series can now be can be mounted in ball up and ball down position, giving you more flexibility
Choice of image quality
D-Series systems deploy a 640 x 480 or 320 × 240 pixel thermal imaging camera. To make sure that there is a D-Series for every security application FLIR Systems offers a wide variety of lenses. Longer lenses have a narrower field of view and allow you to spot intruders from further away.
Continuous E-zoom provides enhanced alarm assessment and optimization of camera field of view. Optionally available on all 640 x 480 pixel models.
All versions are equipped with a long range daylight/low light camera. The daylight camera offers an 36x optical zoom.
Wide dynamic range
Delivers high contrast thermal images in the most diverse conditions. Even when the sun is in the field of view. But also in cold and low contrast thermal scenes. Ideal for working together with video analytics that need properly contrasted images in order not to generate false alarms.
Precise Pan/Tilt mechanism
All D-Series thermal imaging cameras come with a precision pan/tilt mechanism. It allows the user to rotate the camera 360° continuously and to tilt it +20° to -90°. This drastically increases situational awareness. The Pan/Tilt has 128 preset positions. Ideal if you want to scan an area continuously.
IP control and ONVIF compliance
The D-Series can be integrated in any existing TCP/IP network and controlled over a PC. No additional cables are required. Using this configuration, you can monitor all activity over the network, even when you are thousands of kilometers away. The D-Series are fully ONVIF compliant.
Multiple channels of streaming digital video are available in H.264, MPEG-4, or M-JPEG formats. Simultaneous digital and composite video output is standard.
Radar Connection – “Slew to cue”
The D-Series can be connected by the integrator to a radar system. If the radar detects an object, the D-Series 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.
FLIR Sensors Manager
Each D-Series camera comes with a single sensor copy of FLIR Sensors Manager. This intuitive software allows users to manage and control a D-Series camera in a TCP/IP network.
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 wave- length 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. In contrast with other technologies, such as light amplification, thermal imaging needs no light whatsoever to produce an image on which the smallest of details can be seen. Thermal imaging provides full visibility irrespective of the prevailing light level and weather conditions.
It can see in total darkness, in the darkest of nights, through light fog, in the far distance, through smoke and is able to detect anyone hiding in the shadows.
