 High-Resolution Thermal Night Vision with a Color TV Camera

FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced the release of the latest addition to its industry-leading M-Series family of thermal night vision cameras, the new gyro-stabilized M-618CS.

This exciting new M-Series camera offers powerful new features, including:

High resolution thermal night vision – 640 x 480 resolution, along with 2× and 4× E-Zoom, provide clear, detailed images from farther away than you ever thought possible, even in total darkness.

Extended range performance –  The M-618CS’s 35 mm thermal lens can detect small vessels from over 2 miles away, giving you more time to see and avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Active gyro-stabilization – Provides steady imagery, even in rough seas; this is critical for getting the most out of the M-618CS’s long-range cameras.

Color TV camera with 10x optical zoom – Continuous zoom can match the thermal camera’s e-zoom for easy operation when switching between cameras.

Housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure that provides continuous 360° pan and +/-90° tilt capability, the M-618CS provides horizon-to-horizon coverage, and incorporates cutting-edge Ethernet connectivity for easy installation and control. No one else has ever offered all of these cutting edge features at this price point.

The M-Series Control Unit makes for safe, easy, and intuitive operation.

    This site is a fascinating concept. I’m one of those people who tend to wait for things to mature prior to taking action. In this case, the information I found here makes me mindful to pay attention.
