New TCX Thermal PTZ from Flir

Wilsonville, Or (USA)

Flir has launched the Flir TCX PTZ as the industry’s most affordable, high-performance thermal PTZ camera yet.

The Flir TCX Thermal PTZ camera was designed to easily integrate with existing alarm sensors to deliver accurate, real-time visual assessment and alarm verification. It is available in 640x480 and 320x240 resolution, and has on-board video motion detection (VMD) analytics for accurate intrusion detection 24/7.  These thermal cameras are designed to give the user the advantage of seeing clearly in complete darkness without any illumination, in bright sunlight, through smoke, dust or even light fog.

This new camera provides a powerful platform that is able to give real-time visual assessment and visual alarm verification. No illumination is required, and it is able to outperform visual cameras at night, in challenging lighting conditions, low- contrast scenes, inclement weather and heavily landscaped areas.  It has also been enginneered to works with legacy intrusion detection technology by providing clear visual imagery of detected motion or activity 24/7.

The TCX PTZ delivers extremely affordable performance with two resolutions and lens options - a continuous 360° pan, up to 400°/sec, -15° to 90° tilt, auto-flip 180°, 300°/sec and 4x continuous ezoom.  Users can choose from 640x480 or 320x240 resolutions and  16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios.  Human observation detection range is from 25° ~ up to 390m/1,270ft, and 32° ~ up to 570m/1,870ft in good conditions. It also features WDR Thermal with DDE & AGC for clear video and video alarm verification 24/7.

This latest Flir offering is also produced to provide easy integration in all environments, with the flexibility to install into any new or existing system.  To this end they are compatible with ONVIF Profile S IP, MPX (HDCVI) and analogue VMS systems.  They feature PoE connectivity, 24 VAC, indoor/outdoor IP66 rating protection against ingress and work over a  temperature range from -40C – 55C (Anti-Ice).  Simple plug and play installation is achieved with the Flir mobile & PC apps, and Flir network and MPX recorders.
