A video camera that detects fires and fire risks

This company has added long-range fire detection and fire risk-assessment capabilities to certain models of its EyeSec line of high-performance, uncooled thermal cameras. With this integrated option, the company claims to be the only camera manufacturer that delivers an application-specific, embedded fire-detection video algorithm that can sense a fire to provide an automatic safety and security notification of the event. With its flame-detection capability enabled, the camera can detect a 75 x 75 cm fire as far away as 840 m within 5 s, with detection ranges increasing for larger fires up to 6 x 6 m and distances up to 6.5 km, day or night. For fire risk assessment, the camera scans the area of interest and alerts when any object in its field of view reaches the operator-set temperature threshold, for example, when factory machinery reaches dangerous temperatures. — Opgal Optronic Industries, Karmiel, Israel
