The Pelco ESTI314-2N Thermal IP Positioning System with Pedestal Mount (NTSC) is an advanced thermal imaging pan/tilt system designed for easy integration into any new or existing video security application. The system is designed to provide detection, recognition, and identification of people and vehicles in any lighting condition, including complete darkness. Every ESTI314-2N features IP or analog outputs in the same package and an integrated environmentally protected IP66 rated enclosure with Esprit pan/tilt positioner, which can be controlled using IP or analog systems that use Coaxitron or RS-422 Pelco D and Pelco P protocols. Additionally, when used in an IP system, the features a full suite of designed-for-thermal analytics.
At the core of the ESTI314-2N is an uncooled, sun-safe microbolometer, long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) camera that delivers up to 384 x 288 thermal video. These cameras feature an amorphous silicon detector, which has lower fixed pattern noise and a more uniform response than vanadium oxide detectors, while still maintaining high resolution and sensitivity when exposed directly to the sun during normal daylight hours.
The thermal camera provides outstanding sensitivity below 50 mK at f/1.0. It is capable of multiple display formats, including white hot, black hot, and color signatures. The Sarix TI is available with multiple lens configurations for effective deployment in a wide range of applications.
The camera has an input voltage of 24 VAC. In IP installations, the Sarix TI can support two simultaneous video streams. The two streams can be compressed in MJPEG and H.264 formats across several resolution configurations. The streams can be configured to a variety of frame rates, bit rates, and group of pictures (GOP) structures for additional bandwidth administration. When used in analog installations, the camera supports camera control and limited camera setup using Coaxitron, Pelco P, and Pelco D protocols.
The Sarix TI provides variable pan and tilt speeds ranging from 0.1 to 40 degrees per second in manual pan mode and 0.1 to 20 degrees per second in manual tilt mode. Pan preset and turbo speeds are 100 degrees per second in wind speeds of 50 mph and 50 degrees per second in the 90 mph wind-speed profile. Tilt preset speed is 30 degrees per second. The camera is capable of 360 degrees of continuous pan rotation. The tilt range allows for horizontal viewing of +33 to –83°. Preset positions have a preset accuracy of one-quarter degree. The powder-coated aluminum enclosure makes the Sarix TI ideal for either indoor or outdoor applications. The system has a sustained operating temperature range of –40 to 122°F (–40 to 50°C ). A built-in heater/defroster and sun shroud are standard features on the system.
Pelco Analytics enhance the flexibility and performance of the Sarix TI system when used in an IP video system. Pelco Analytics are easy to configure for alarm notification when used with Endura or a third-party system that supports Pelco's Analytics API system. The positioning system includes five user-configurable behaviors. The camera is capable of running up to three behaviors simultaneously; although, the number of behaviors is limited to the available processing power of the camera and the type of analytic being used.
Each suite includes the following behaviors:
Adaptive Motion: Detects and tracks objects that enter a scene and then triggers an alarm when the objects enter a user-defined zone or cross a trip wire. This behavior is primarily used in outdoor environments with light traffic to reduce the number of false alarms caused by environmental changes.
Camera Sabotage: Detects contrast changes in the field of view. An alarm is triggered if the lens is obstructed with spray paint, a cloth, or covered with a lens cap. Any unauthorized repositioning of the camera also triggers an alarm.
Loitering Detection: Identifies when people or vehicles remain in a defined zone longer than the user-defined time allows. This behavior is effective in real-time notification of suspicious behavior around ATMs, stairwells, and school grounds.
Object Counting: Counts the number of objects that enter a defined zone or cross a trip wire. This behavior might be used to count the number of people at a store entrance/exit or inside a store where the traffic is light. This behavior is based on tracking and does not count people in a crowded setting.
Stopped Vehicle: Detects vehicles stopped near a sensitive area longer than the user-defined time allows. This behavior is ideal for airport curbside drop-offs, parking enforcement, suspicious parking, traffic lane breakdowns, and vehicles waiting at gates.
The Sarix TI Series uses a standard web browser for powerful remote setup and administration.
