GUIDE Infrared a leading manufacturer of Thermal Imaging cameras since 1999 are introducing into the Security market their latest range of best of breed, leading technology cameras the KnightIR Series.
The KnightIR Series cameras have been specifically design and manufactured to meet the demanding needs of security application around the globe and the diversity of the different environments where the very best security systems are deployed.
We have the the widest range of both Static and PTZ cameras available, with an array of lens options from 8mm to 150mm, with the lowest F# lenses for maximum efficiency. with our advance 384x288 FPA resolution detector and 50Hz full frame rate video.
Our entire range of cameras offers the very best in performance, reliability and durability no matter the environment, application or location around the world.
The SF and MF (Standard Function, Multi-Function) are static cameras. The SF range of cameras are plug and play offering power in and analogue video out, the MF offering power in and IP out. The cameras make the perfect choice for the implementation of a security detection system.
With standard brackets the SF and MF can be mounted to building, poles or towers. And option for a Pan and Tilt platform using Pelco D protocols.
The DS (Duel Sensor) cameras are fully functional cameras offering the operator the benefit of live visual image and live thermal image with both Analogue and IP streams.
For the CDD imager we offer an optional choice of cameras for day night, low light use with 10 and 16x optical zoom and now with the new and latest HD cameras.
With the implementation and integration of the static cameras along the perimeter of any establishment, the live video images can be monitored in the security room, just like conventional CCTV cameras. When you also use motion detection/video analytics in conjunction with the live video image it is possible to set up a fully automated detection and alarming system. The DS cameras can be used as the response camera to the alarm. When a potential threat has been detected using the static thermal camera with the analytics this will trigger an alarm and the DS camera can slew to the area where the alarm was generated.
The security teams would then have the live image from the static camera with the alarm, the live image from the DS camera with the thermal image and also the CCD image, and the security team can then monitor and track the threat. This allow for timely interception to prevent a possibleincident. The operator can provide real time and upto date live information to the mobile security team or police if they are to intercept the threat.
This fully automated, full situational awareness real time live visual monitoring and alarming detection system have proven to be the preferred choice of use for the highest level of security and for domestic residence. It has been proven to be cost effective, reliable and the only system that offers this capability in day, night 24/7/365 and in adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow and fog.
All Guide cameras are embedded with Pelco D protocols to ensure the ease of integration into legacy or new build security systems and with our team of pre/post engineers we are at hand to support you and your clients all the way through the channel to the end user, this can be site surveys, design and commissioning.
All Guide products are supplied with 2 years warranty as standard and options to extend to 3, 4 and 5 years. All repairs are carried out under RMA at our Belgium office and we can turn repairs around very quickly, and we share the cost 50/50 for the shipping.
To support the EMEA market EUNIR Systems NV was established in Belgium, a subsidiary of Guide to offer sales, marketing, training, admin and support to all our channels in this region.
EUNIR systems based in Leuven which is 20 minutes outside Brussels ensures that we are centrally placed in Europe. From here we can offer the highest calibre support from our professional team of staff. We can offer fast turnaround of any technical matters, support in the filed with demonstration and presentation, provide consultative services to aid in the design and recommendation of products and technology.
From our central European operations we are able to delivery our products from stock or for large projects or bespoke projects our normal delivery schedule are approx. 6 weeks. The benefit of this service is that within Europe there is no Duty cost and minimal shipping costs.
Thermal imaging cameras provide the assurance that security applications and operators need to be able to offer the highest level of protection of any asset. Because Thermal unlike conventional cameras which are reliant of the reflected light from all objects, our cameras will be able to detect all objects any time of the day or year or weather condition.
Guide thermal cameras are able to detect the radiated heat from every object that can and cannot be seen because of poor lighting, weather conditions or even if the target is trying to use the cover of foliage or vegetation. Thermal cameras are not affected if LED lights or bright light beams are used to obscure the vision of the camera.
The cameras require no form of lighting or illumination unlike conventional cameras, which have to use lights or illuminators or IR lamps, all of which are costly to implement, maintain and run, and reduce the overall performance of the CCD based camera and in adverse weather condition significantly.
With the Guide KnightIR Series of Thermal imaging cameras and our range of lens options, we have the perfect solution to meet your requirements. To be able to detect a person day or night at 200mtrs upto 3600mtrs.
The KnightIR series cameras can be deployed at critical infrastructures like nuclear and coal power stations, water treatment plants, oil, gas and electrical installation, substation, airport, ports and mariners, along the highways or rail lines, commercial and domestic property and for the protection of our boarders and costliness. Whether fixed in a static application or on a mobile platform which could land or sea, the KnightIR series offer the flexibility and adaptability all in the same product.
