Argus, Geutebruck’s high precision pan and tilt system continues to turn heads

Argus, Geutebrück’s sophisticated pan and tilt system continues to attract attention wherever it is shown and Las Vegas was no exception. Engineered to support extremely fast, precise camera work in hostile environments, it delivers a smooth, stable image even for close-ups with a high power zoom, and pans at any speed from a slow crawl (0.01°/s) to a very fast sweep (200°/s). Its 225 fixed positions for pan, tilt, focus and zoom are reached with extremely high accuracy (< +/- 0.01°), and the head automatically returns to its ‘home’ position after a period of inactivity or following any attempt at unauthorised realignment. Argus allows endless 360° rotation for continuous all-round observation of its environment and can be mounted upright or inverted. Two different IP66/V4A weather and corrosion-proof housings with dirt and water repellent windows are designed to accommodate a wide range of cameras with 12-240 mm zoom lenses including a range extender. The heads are easy to mount and remove for servicing and requiring no lubrication are completely maintenance free. Argus is therefore an solution for reliable, cost-effective operation in inhospitable and inaccessible places such as tunnels or marine and industrial environments as well as large open sites.   An optional protection ring ('IceShield’) can be fitted (or retrofitted) to prevent internal icing in very cold weather and an optional AirBlastCleaner is available to deal with any particularly tenacious water drops, snow flakes, insects or spiders which cling to the housing window. This maintenance-free device enables the control room operator to clean the glass with a short blast of compressed air without leaving his seat. Argus comes in several different configurations to suit your particular need.  You can use it with a day/night camera alone, with a camera and an infrared spotlight or together with a thermal imaging camera.The high performance, infrared spotlight has long-life LEDs and a choice of three beam angles.  It works in unison with the camera head and automatically floods the monitored scene with IR light to a distance of up to 70m. When fitted with a colour CCTV camera and a thermal imaging camera, Argus is a formidable tool for use on large open sites, round the clock and in any weather.  Immune to the effects of dazzling lights, darkness, mist or smoke, thermal imaging is ideal for spotting intruders from a considerable distance. With no illumination involved, it is unobtrusive and offers a high probability of detection even at long range because of the difficulty for intruders to screen themselves against the technology.
