PATC-F Series dual payload thermal PTZ camera is a maritime standard ruggedized thermal vision system, housed with aluminum, the camera is anti-corrosive and IP67 rated, enabling it to work properly even in tough sea environment.
This PTZ is Marine Rated and has a Dual Camera Payload: a 20X HD Color Zoom camera – combined with a High Sensitivity Thermal Imaging camera. We also give you 3 outputs for this camera – Visual Video / Thermal Video / and a Switching Output that switches back & forth between the two camera types. This camera also
The Thermal Imager camera has two selectable modes for seeing the thermal heat signatures: Black Hot and White Hot. Each type can be selected according to preference, or to help distinguish in cool water or around engines or other hot environments.
Other Standard features include; Aluminum case rated to IP67, Surge & Lightning protection, Built-in Defogging system (working temperatures from -20C to +55C),Radar Tracking(Optional) PATC F Series camera recives, reads, analyzes NMEA0183 strings from Radar and manages algorithm calculation from current vessel position to target(s), finally camera move to view the gargets actively. Video Tracking(Optional), the function allows a target lock on the video image and allow tracking the camera keeps pointed on it. Continuous Thermal Imaging, the uncooled 640×480/384×288 thermal core is with 25hz/30hz, provides clear and continuous thermal images. Indicators On Thermal & Daylight Images, position indicators, status and scene icons are displayed on both thermal & daylight cameras, providing direct and exact information to assist navigation. Image Freeze Capability On Thermal & Daylight Images, both cameras support to freeze images on demand, enable to view more details of specific iamges. Ethernet & Serial Control Via Keyboard Controller, optional maritime keyboard controller has booth Ethernet and RS485 interface to control the camera, the controller is used to pan tilt and zoom the camera, operate the camera functions with its buttons and OSD menu, and also move the camera into or out of standby mode.
If you are not yet familiar with Thermal Imaging cameras, then you are about to learn just how useful they are.
A normal camera can be blinded by snow, rain or the glare from a puddle of water. In fact, even fog can render a normal camera ineffective. The PATC-F Series Thermal PTZ from Rugged Marine, can see through challenging conditions and effectively guard areas in just about any weather.
Thermal Imaging cameras excel at night. Excess heat has dissipated after nightfall and the contrast between warm bodies and hot engines against background heat is much more evident.
Thermal Imaging cameras can also see heat at great distances. Your normal security camera that uses Infrared Lighting will only illuminate a small area in front of the camera. But a Thermal camera does not need any type of lighting and does not care if it is totally dark.
Thermal cameras are used extensively in Marine environments and on ships and tugboats, but are also great at monitoring storage yards, railroad yards, perimeter fencing, roadways and any other locations that need to be able to detect people and vehicles or vessels at long distances.
The PATC-F Series Thermal PTZ can be ordered with either a 19mm medium distance lens or a 40mm long distance Thermal Imager lens (the Color Zoom Camera has a SONY FCB-EV7320 HD 20X Zoom Module – 4.7mm to 94mm lens – and 12X Digital Zoom).
The PATC-F Mobile Thermal PTZ also has a “SAFE” Mode that hides both cameras away during bright light or other hazardous events.
