Aeron

Thermal and Visible Pan/Tilt Cameras

Aeron cameras are designed to meet the increasing demand for mid or long-range thermal and video surveilance in a robust but discreet housing.  The Aeron is a ready to go compact surveillance system which has a range of features including the fixed lens, uncooled thermal camera and a 4K video camera.  All models utilize DRS' proven 17μm 640 x 480 LWIR thermal imaging technology to provide man detection up to 5.2 kilometers.  All configurations offer simultaneous HD video verification.

FEATURES

The Aeron features DRS’ proven uncooled high resolution 17μm VOx thermal imaging technology to provide man detection at up to 3.4 kilometers. The thermal camera utilizes proprietary Image Contrast Enhancement (ICE) to enhance contrast and features continuous digital zoom. Thermal camera options include a choice between the following thermal cameras: 65mm(fixed), 100mm (fixed), 15-60mm(CZ), 35-105mm(CZ), and 50-150mm(CZ).  Visible camera options include a choice between either a 30x high definition continuous zoom or a 30x 4K continuous zoom visible camera.

Aeron camera systems are built of hard anodised aluminium construction tested to the environmental IP67 standard and built for use in rugged outdoor environments. The toughened, optically flat glass provides clear images, even at the highest zoom levels and can be kept clean at all times by the integrated wiper unit. Optical encoders for both the pan and tilt axes provide highly accurate positioning and repeatability with self-correcting positioning to counteract any external interference with the pan and tilt head.

The Aeron can be mounted upright or inverted and the tilt camera head can be offset to increase the tilt range and eliminate blindspots immediately below the camera mount.  A wide array of mounting accessories are available, including 4” PCD.
