FLIR HRC MS -Series

Thermal imaging cameras for ultra long range surveillance applications with cooled detector Heatsec_Flir_HRC

The HRC-Series are equipped with a highly reliable, mid-wave, cooled detector which offers extremely long range detection in all weather conditions. The cameras offer a continuous optical and electronic zoom. This offers excellent situational awareness while also giving the possibility to zoom in at suspect activities, and have a closer look, once they are detected. The HRC-Series can be integrated into existing networks or used as a stand alone unit.

The HRC-Series offer extreme long range detection and excellent image quality, in the darkest of nights, through smoke and dust. You can detect a man-size target several kilometers away. All thermal imaging cameras are extremely suited for border and coastal surveillance but also for mid-range threat detection.

 

detector
Cooled detector
The HRC-Series are equipped with a mid-wave, cooled detector. A thermal imaging camera with a cooled detector gives you the advantage that you can see and detect potential threats much farther away than with an uncooled detector. But there is more. Objects which are at a close distance can be seen with much more detail. You can see what people are carrying. There is no need anymore to send someone out in the field to take a closer look since small details can clearly be seen on the thermal image.According to his needs and preferences, the user can choose a FLIR HRC-Series that is either equipped with a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) or a cooled Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detector.
640x480 kopie.png Crisp, high resolution thermal images: 640 x 480 pixels
All thermal imaging cameras are equipped with a cooled Mid-Wave InfraRed (MWIR) detector (InSb or MCT) that produces ultra-sharp thermal images of 640 x 480 pixels. This will satisfy users that want to see the smallest of detail and demand the best possible image quality.It allows the user to see more detail and detect more and smaller objects from a farther distance. Coupled with high sensitivity, the HRC-Series offer extremely long range performance and excellent image quality.
4 versions
Four different versions available
–     HRC-E: Equipped with a 22 x 275 mm lens. It zooms between a 25° field of view and a 2° field of view.
–     HRC-S: Equipped with a 39 x 490 mm lens. It zooms between a 14.1° field of view and a 1.1° field of view.
–     HRC-U: Equipped with a 59 x 735 mm lens. It zooms between a 9.4° field of view and a 0.75° field of view.
–     HRC-X: Equipped with a 88 x 1100 mm lens. It zooms between a 6.3° field of view and a 0.5° field of view.
digital zoom Continuous optical and digital zoom on the thermal image
The HRC-Series thermal imaging cameras are equipped with powerful continuous optical zoom capability on the thermal image. It offers excellent situational awareness but also the possibility to zoom-in, and see more detail, once a target has been detected. This way operators can see farther recognize more detail and react more quickly to security threats. The advantage of continuously zooming compared to other systems that are using a rotating lens system is that there is no switch or swapping between the different images. You can gradually zoom in while keeping your focus all the time.All systems are also equipped with an up to 16x continuous digital zoom.
DDE Advanced image processing
FLIR Systems has developed a powerful algorithm that helps to overcome the problem of finding low contrast targets in high dynamic range scenes. Advanced Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) assures clear, properly contrasted thermal images. DDE delivers a high contrast image even in extremely dynamic thermal scenes. It provides high quality thermal imaging in any night- or daytime environmental conditions.
focus free Auto focus
The HRC-Series contain an exclusive auto focus feature which delivers crisp, clear images at the press of a button. Focus is kept while zooming in or out. The system allows you to experience better situational awareness in the wide field of view, while maintaining detailed recognition capabilities in the narrow field of view.
easy to install Easy and fast to install
All cameras incorporate easily with common power and video interfaces found in existing and new security systems. They can be easily integrated into any existing infrastructure providing early detection and visibility 24/7 all the year round. The images from the ­640 x 480 pixels detector can be displayed on virtually any existing display that accepts standard composite video.
ease of use Portability
All systems are configured to be either fixed mounted or field transportable for fast deployment. They can be mounted on a standard tripod. A single operator can set up the system in minutes, making it ideal for mobile operations and quick deployments.
harsh conditions
Designed for use in harsh environments
All systems are extremely rugged. Their vital core is well protected against humidity and water. They all operate between -32°C and +55°C. All HRC-Series are Commercially Developed, Military Qualified (CDMQ). They comply with various Mil-Std.
multiple installations
Multiple installation options
Various options exist to connect the HRC-Series and integrate them in your existing systems. All cameras can be configured for stand alone use, as part of a network or in a hybrid configuration with local and network based control:
– Serial Configuration: Simply connect the HRC-Series over serial to your remote control panel or use the Joystick Control Unit.
– TCP/IP configuration: all HRC MS cameras can be integrated in any existing TCP/IP network and controlled over a PC. No need to put extra cables. Using this configuration, you can monitor all activity in a protected area over the internet. Even when you are thousands of kilometers away.
