FLIR Systems, an infrared technology manufacturer located in Burlington, Ont., have revealed the A310f and A310pt, two new remote monitoring systems for fully automated thermal event detection.

The FLIR A310pt (see photo above) is a pan/tilt unit designed for automated fire and catastrophic event prevention that simultaneously provides full thermal perimeter security functionality. Typical applications include electrical substation monitoring, fire prevention for coal or wood chip piles, and flare stack monitoring.

It’s the first remote temperature measurement system that can plug and play into existing CCTV (closed-circuit television) networks and IPTV (internet protocol TV) security networks. A precision pan-tilt mechanism gives operators accurate pointing control while providing fully programmable scan patterns, radar slew-to-cue, and slew-to-alarm functionality.

The FLIR A310f is a fix-mounted system featuring an A310 thermal camera protected by an IP66 environmental housing.
