Security & Surveillance

We have had the privilege to develop custom infrared thermal imaging products for a number of OEM’s who produce/resell cameras and systems for the Security and Surveillance market. These OEM’s, with Lumitron's assistance if desired, create a complete solution, unique to them, addressing the specific needs of their customers. Lumitron has developed a number of camera platforms that employ both cooled and uncooled technologies that are designed to meet as many of those needs as possible. To assure ease of application for our OEM clients, we have developed these cameras with a common communication/control platform that allows for a mix of camera technologies in a single system package without additional software costs.

The Lumitron camera is designed to provide the maximum level of performance and features in the smallest weight/power package available. With one of the smallest footprints in the industry for a mid format (320x240) camera, weight as low as 1.1Kg for a fully weatherproof package, and power consumption as low as 2.4W, the camera is ideal for remote surveillance applications. Lumitron products have been designed to meet the most demanding security and surveillance requirements with industry leading image quality and complete control of camera functions.

A variety of lenses, detector technologies, packaging options, and camera performance levels allow you the client to develop the camera that provides best cost/performance for a particular need. For Security and Surveillance, our cameras may be used as a standalone system or in conjunction with CCD and Intensified CCD cameras providing you latitude in your system design/integration project with high quality images 24/365.

The cooled (3-5 µm) camera is used for applications where image quality, speed of recognition, and/or long distance detection/recognition is a factor. This camera is perfect for meeting the NATO requirements of “seeing” muzzle fire at 5 Km and the securing of a 13 Km area as defined in Embassy requirements. This camera is also well suited for Harbor monitoring where long distance imaging in a tough maritime environment is critical. Multiple field of view lenses with focal lengths of up to 500mm are available for long distance surveillance needs.

The uncooled (8-14 µm) camera is used for shorter distances and for wide areas of view. It is perfect for those applications where the distance being monitored is, but not limited to, 1 to 5Km. With the use of lenses from 13mm to 200mm, the camera field of view can be optimized for your applications. Having no moving parts and very low power consumption, the uncooled camera is also perfectly suited for 24/365 operation.

The enclosure is just as critical a component to the over all performance of the camera as the detector and lens are. This is addressed with either a standard Lumitron camera housing, a NEMA 4 (IP65/66) enclosure, or a Lumitron/client designed package. This allows the client to specifically address the application requirements as well as preserving their own look and feel to the product.

The Lumitron camera features a remote focusing technique that moves the focal plane array, allowing the use of fixed focus lenses rather than costly motorized lens assemblies. Using a fixed focus lens greatly simplifies packaging design; the lens is easily made weather resistant. A single field of view camera typically does not need a separate camera housing thus eliminating the cost/weight penalties of a housing and IR transparent window.
The camera incorporates a multitude of features important to Security/Surveillance applications. There are eight different color pallets available within the camera and the ability for up to twelve NUC tables to allow for the best viewable image for the client. A built in calibration flag under software control is used to provide the best possible image quality.

ophisticated built-in test routines warn the operator of any problems and assist in trouble shooting. Internal temperature sensors automatically adjust camera operation to compensate for wide variations in ambient temperature.

Lumitron understands the needs of our clients and works with our clients to produce a world class product specific to the needs of their marketing plan.
