Dual Optical & Thermal PTZ Camera


The MFR-DB is a dual band PTZ camera incorporating both an optical and a thermal camera. Housed in a very rugged environmentally sealed casing it is ideal for use in harsh environments. It incorporates a Sony HD camera with a 30x optical zoom lens and a 63.7° wide angle of view.

The Flir thermal camera incorporates radiometric technology which delivers high precision temperature monitoring. It supports an 8x digital zoom and spot metering to further optimise the exposure control for each particular scenario. The HD-SDI video signal output can be user switched between either camera as and when required. The zoom is synchronised between the two cameras, up to the maximum FOV capability of the thermal camera. This allows convenient
switching between the two camera views.

Speeds are zoom factor corrected, giving control over the range of the lens with pan speeds up to 100º per second. The MFR-DB has absolute position feedback and therefore has the ability to self correct its actual position if external forces act upon it. User presets can be saved allowing PTZ framing and camera racking profiles to be easily recalled.

There is the option to have the video output as an encoded ONVIF compliant stream for use in IP networks. Remote control of the camera is through VISCA protocol over USB or a RS232/RS485 serial connection. All power, data and video signals are through the Fischer MiniMax connector on the camera’s base. The outer casing is manufactured from aluminium. All external mating surfaces are gasket sealed to maintain its IP67 rating.
