Geutebruck's Argus Precision Pan And Tilt System Now With Photon Thermal Imaging Camera

Product Profile

Geutebruck is now offering a thermal imaging camera for its Argus pan and tilt system. Combined with a colour CCTV camera and high speed, precision control, this Geutebruck Photon represents a formidable tool for the early detection of intruders on open sites, round the clock and in any weather.

Unhindered by dazzling lights, darkness, mist or smoke, the Photon is ideal for spotting intruders from long distances. With the 19mm lens model intruders can be identified at up to 40 metres, humans recognized at up to about 80m and intrusion of some kind detected at up to about 310m. These ranges increase to 70m, 140m and 560m for the 35mm lens option and to 100m, 200m and 780m respectively for the 50mm lens version. Thermal imaging requires no illumination and is unobtrusive. It offers high detection probability even at long range because of the extreme difficulty for intruders to screen themselves against the technology.  

The Argus pan and tilt unit itself is engineered to support extremely fast, precise camera work even in hostile environments. It accommodates a wide range of CCTV cameras with 12-240 mm zoom lenses including a range extender. It delivers a smooth, stable image - even for close-ups with a high power zoom - and pans at any speed from a slow crawl (0.01°/s) to a very fast sweep (200°/s). The 225 fixed positions for pan, tilt, focus and zoom are reached with extremely high accuracy (< +/- 0.01°), and the system automatically returns the head to its ‘home' position after any period of inactivity or following any attempt at unauthorized realignment.
