Videotec presents NTX, a new IP68 stainless steel thermal camera. It’s for surveillance in the most critical site conditions, the Italian manufacturers say.
The camera offers temperature detection based on the four central pixels of the image, and with the advanced version, the temperature of a specific object can be measured at any point in the image by means of defining a specific area. The radiometric functions offer the option to set a temperature limit, beyond which an alarm will be raised.
These functions are necessary where fire prevention is required or when monitoring industrial processes or critical equipment, calling for the ability to identify something quickly and accurately, thus preventing problems or failures and keeping intervention times to a minimum.
The product can export all the data necessary for a centralised management of video feeds, data and alarms, and make it available to video management software (VMS) via the ONVIF Profile S and Profile Q communication protocols. Also, configuring and controlling thermal image parameters is possible via the ONVIF Thermal Service Standard.
As a thermal camera users can raise an alarm and initiate actions to prevent accidents or unwanted intrusions into monitored areas. The camera is made entirely from electropolished AISI316L stainless steel and offers a compact design and light weight. The modular support for wall, ceiling or parapet comes as standard.
The NTX has obtained Lloyd’s Register Marine Type Approval certification for the maritime and naval sector and complies with the standard for railway applications. NTX is exceptionally resistant to corrosion and has a wide operating temperature range (from minus 40 degrees C to +65 degrees C). Its IP66/IP67/IP68, NEMA Type 4X and Type 6P grades guarantee maximum protection and optimal camera operation in even the most adverse environmental conditions, the makers add.
The firm says it’s for marine and industrial sectors, in critical infrastructures, power plants and transport sector, including railways and motorway tunnels.
