Bosch Security Systems of Fairport, N.Y., releases 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. Users 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.
The MIC Series 612 is a ruggedized, dual optical/thermal pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) camera. It combines 36x zoom optical day/night camera module and an un-cooled, long wavelength thermal imager side-by-side within the housing. This allows users 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, according to the company.
