Acal BFi announced the launch of the CCTi family of thermal imaging cameras at IFSEC. Providing an IP and analogue video output at a resolution of 384p x 288p or 640p x 480p, the CCTi thermal imaging camera performance is unaffected by fog, smoke or other effects that impair the output from a visible camera.
The CCTi cameras are available at launch in four variants:
- CCTi-300P-01 thermal imager offers 384p x 288p resolution and Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) control, with analogue video output (no IP)
- CCTi-300P-02 is a PTZ 384p x 288p dual visible/thermal camera with dual analogue video outputs (no IP)
- CCTi-300B-01 is a bullet thermal camera with 384p x 288p resolution, providing simultaneous analogue video and IP outputs
- CCTi-600B-01 is a bullet thermal camera with a higher 640p x 480p resolution, providing simultaneous analogue video and IP outputs
Multiple lens options are available to give the required field of view and range. According to the company, because these thermal imagers work are equally effective in daylight or at night, they offer users a low total cost of ownership compared to conventional visible CCTV systems, since no area lighting is required for the imagers to work.
Alex Schneider, business development director at Acal BFi, said: “Acal BFi has introduced the CCTi thermal cameras to give Europe’s security integrators and installers a new option offering better value for money than any previous thermal camera.”
