MOBOTIX M15 overview

  • 1Description

The AllroundDual M15D Thermographic Network Camera from MOBOTIX is based on the modular MOBOTIX platform. The modular camera consists of a housing, front element, and a thermal sensor. The thermal sensor comes with a pre-installed L135 lens that has a 17° horizontal field of view.

The housing includes integrated camera electronics, flash memory, external ports (Ethernet, MxBus, and mini USB), and a pre-installed VarioFlex mount for wall or ceiling mounting. The front element accommodates the thermal sensor (right module), a 5MP sensor module (left module, sold separately), microphone, speaker, passive infrared sensor, outside temperature sensor, and status LEDs. The camera comes with connection cables for the sensor and network.

The thermal sensor has a temperature measuring range of -40 to 1022°F (-40 to 550°C) and is capable of detection in complete darkness and/or through smoke, smog, or a thin plastic film (limited during thick fog). It is configured using camera software in a Web browser. The left module can be a 5MP day (color) or night (black & white) sensor, telephoto to hemispheric, with or without long-pass filter (LPF) for identification.

Combined with an array of sensors (PIR sensor, microphone, thermal) and the analytics capabilities of the camera software (MxActivitySensor, video motion detection, event logic), the camera can detect moving people and cars, as well as their direction of movement, even in total darkness. The different display options of the thermal image sensor (off-color/black & white) add to the existing possibilities for analyzing and using the generated images.

The built-in MxActivitySensor software is an activity-controlled image analysis tool for detecting movement of people and objects in a monitored area (full image or section). It is designed to be easy to configure and deliver reliable results, even in applications with large amounts of external interference. For example, the camera distinguishes between movements of vehicles, people, or objects that trigger an alarm and movements that are not relevant for alarms, such as shadows, changes in illumination, trees swaying in the wind, or rain falling directly at the lens. In combination with the thermal image sensor, it is possible to block out disruptive factors like regular movements of cold objects such as bushes, grass, water, clouds, waves, etc.

When a 5MP sensor is added to the system, even fast-moving objects can be identified easily without motion blur. When the light intensity fades, e.g., during dusk, MOBOTIX Lowlight Exposure Optimization (MxLEO) shortens exposure times to deliver crisp images. The M15D camera is certified according to IP66 and can withstand a temperature range of -22 to 140°F. It does not require additional cooling, heating, or a special housing.

This modular system can also be reconfigured or repaired by simply replacing a sensor module using the special tools shipped with the system.

The camera software is pre-installed, so it is ready for use without any additional configuration. The camera is suitable for video security applications in commercial, private, and public sector environments, as a surveillance or weather camera, webcam, indoors or outdoors, day or night. This camera operates with built-in firmware allowing remote access from Windows and Mac computers via a web browser, or using the free MOBOTIX app for iOS.
