Raven-640-Analog 17μm

Security solutions with SWAP infrared cameras

Best Detection, Recognition and Identification values to protect your facilities

The Raven-640-Analog 17 μm is an infrared imaging camera, specially designed for the demanding security market with a high operating temperature range. The thermal image is crisp and clear, even under difficult weather conditions and in complete darkness without the use of additional illumination.

To meet the needs of the professional security community the Raven-640-Analog 17 μm can be configured with various lenses for shortrange, medium-range and longrange observation. The camera interface can be PAL/NTSC video for a regular  CCTV security network. The camera is  controlled by RS232. The integration  and use of these infrared cameras are  so easy, that no operator training is  required.

The detector of the Raven-640 17 μm has a very high resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and offers the earliest and most reliable detection of even the smallest temperature change and the smallest object. The on-board image processing guarantees excellent image quality without the need for adjustment.
