Bosch introduces the next generation MIC Series
Ruggedized visible/thermal PTZ cameras survive the elements
- Switchable or simultaneous thermal/optical output
- Robust design exceeds the most demanding performance requirements
- Easy integration into existing Bosch video surveillance installations
Bosch Security Systems introduces the latest version of its MIC Series ruggedized, Dual Spectrum thermal/optical high-speed pan-tilt-zoom cameras.
The MIC Series 612 Thermal model combines both a high quality 36x zoom optical day/night camera module and an un-cooled, long wavelength IR thermal imager with a 35 or 50 mm lens that sit side-by-side within the housing. The camera delivers object detection at nearly four kilometers (2.4 miles) even in complete darkness, fog or snow.
The MIC Series 612 camera also features Bosch’s standard controller interface to make it easier to integrate the MIC Series into systems that already use Bosch surveillance products. The new controller also gives end users greater precision in their command of camera functions and optics.
Available with either standard or high resolution thermal sensors, the MIC Series 612 captures images in the harshest environments, including a broad range of industrial and government applications, from critical infrastructure to defense to transportation. The IK10-rated vandal- and corrosion-resistant design includes an IP 68/NEMA 6P certified aluminum casing with a long-life silicone wiper. Allowing no water or dust ingress, the MIC Series 612 Thermal camera provides uncompromised performance in the most challenging surveillance conditions.
All MIC Series cameras can be mounted upright or inverted without compromising the IP/NEMA 6P rating. This capability simplifies project planning and provides increased installation flexibility.
