FLIR Systems has introduced the FB-Series ID. It’s the latest fixed bullet thermal camera in the FB-Series. The manufacturer says that the FB-Series ID is for narrow to wide area perimeter detection and sterile-zone monitoring.
The FB-Series ID features video analytics that can classify human or vehicular intrusions. With FLIR’s custom Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE), the FB-Series ID provides image contrast and sharpness, which improves analytic performance, resulting the product company says in fewer false alarms.
The FB-Series ID is certified for integration with third-party video management systems (VMS), as well as FLIR’s own United VMS. As a stand-alone security system, the FB-Series-ID can also pass intrusions to FLIR pan-tilt-zoom cameras for tracking. Featuring FLIR’s 320×240 resolution thermal imaging sensor, the bullet camera can detect potential intruders in total darkness, it’s claimed, and through sun glare, smoke, dust, and light fog. Five lens options – 93, 49, 24, 12 and 9-degree field of views – offer wide to narrow coverage and reduce the number of cameras needed to monitor fence lines, perimeters, and open areas.
John Distelzweig, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR’s Security segment said: “As the first FB-Series camera with built-in analytics, the FB-Series ID provides an all-in-one intrusion detection system that classifies human or vehicular intrusions with low false alarm rates. The FB-Series ID solidifies FLIRs initiative to expand artificial intelligence and bring thermal imaging to more customers.”
The FB-Series ID comes with the firm’s ten-year warranty on the thermal sensor and a three-year warranty on the camera, and will be available for order in late December 2017 through FLIR dealers and integrators. Visit www.flir.com/security.
