Perimeter thermal camera

by Mark Rowe

New from the thermal camera manufacturer FLIR Systems, Inc is the FLIR FB-Series O fixed bullet thermal security camera, pictured. The makers say it’s designed for short to mid-range perimeters. The company says that the product offers plug-and-play integration with FLIR United video management software (VMS) and certified by other third-party video management software companies.

The camera features a 320×240 resolution thermal imaging sensor that detects potential intruders in total darkness, and through sun glare, smoke, dust, and light fog, the makers say. Three separate lens options – 93, 49 and 24-degree field of views – provide narrow-to-wide coverage of fence lines, building perimeters, and open areas.

The FB-Series O integrates with the company’s analytic encoders such as FLIR ioi TRK-101 that help distinguish humans and vehicles, and FLIR ioi TRK-101 P PTZ Tracker that hand-off targets to thermal or visible pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ)-enabled cameras on the same network. Simultaneous IP and analogue video outputs are also available for use with network and legacy analogue systems. Advanced automatic gain control (AGC) and the firm’s Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) provide image quality in all scenes, it’s claimed; and by integrating with FLIR United VMS thermal configuration, users can manage alarm notifications.

John Distelzweig, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR’s Security segment, said: “The FLIR FB-Series O offers the security industry with a thermal camera that provides unmatched versatility. Certified by industry-leading video management systems, the FLIR FB-Series O allows you to incorporate the power of FLIR thermal imaging capabilities and enhance your perimeter security system regardless of size.”

The FB-Series O, which comes with the firm’s ten-year warranty on the thermal sensor and a three-year warranty on the camera body, will be available to order in August 2017 through FLIR dealers and integrators. Visit
