Pittsburgh, PA – Dräger is introducing a new technologically advanced thermal imaging camera designed to optimize image quality and simplify operations in the most extreme conditions. The Dräger UCF 6000 thermal imaging camera offers advanced new features to meet the needs of firefighters and first responders in the most hazardous situations.
The UCF 6000 camera provides superior image quality with 160 x 120 pixels resolution. A brightness sensor adapts the display to all lighting conditions, eliminating the need to cup hands over the screen when operating in direct sunlight. A snapshot function allows freeze-frame imaging of difficult areas. An integrated laser pointer pinpoints hazards and aids communication among responders.
"The UCF 6000 thermal imaging camera provides important new benefits to meet the needs of firefighters and first responders working in environments where fire, smoke and darkness limit visibility and make navigation difficult," said Greg Sesny, Product Management Protection, Draeger Safety, Inc. "The technologically advanced camera was designed to help firefighters meet the most difficult challenges they may face."
The lightweight camera offers a variety of carrying options, with one-hand operation for ease of use and enhanced mobility. The ergonomic design also helps minimize fatigue. With its rugged and durable housing, the UCF 6000 can withstand the most extreme conditions unharmed by water or dust.
The new thermal imaging camera also offers wide, 47-degree field of view with a dynamic range to stay safe. In rapidly changing situations, the operating mode can be adjusted by the touch of a button. The camera can detect hot spots and capture temperature ranges from -40 degrees Fahrenheit to >1700 degrees Fahrenheit.
The UCF 6000 is manufactured by Dräger Safety AG & Co. KGaA.
