argus® from e2v has produced its first range of NFPA compliant Thermal Imaging Cameras, and they are significantly smaller and lighter than any other NFPA camera on the market.
John Masheder, Director of argus® Thermal Imaging commented: “Fire fighter safety is at the forefront of our design process, which is why we invested in producing an NFPA 1801 compliant camera, but we knew we could go beyond the requirements and make the Mi-TIC drastically smaller and lighter than other NFPA thermal imagers on the market……so we did.”
The NFPA 1801:2013 standard has been created to specify design, performance, testing and certification requirements for thermal imaging cameras used by the fire service during emergency incident operations. There are a number of rigorous tests including water resistance, abrasion and drop tests. Image quality is checked after every single test, so fire fighters can be confident that there will be a usable thermal image when they need it most.
The NFPA compliant argus® Mi-TIC will be unveiled at FDIC, Indianapolis, USA, 10th – 12th April. Stop by booth #843 to meet the Mi-TIC.
