MOBOTIX M16B Thermal TR overview

  • 1Description

Take perimeter and fire prevention to a whole new level with the M16B Outdoor Network Thermographic Camera with R237 Thermal Lens from MOBOTIX. Equipped with an uncooled microbolometer image sensor, this camera captures 336 x 252 resolution thermal video. The R237 thermal lens features a 17° horizontal field of view and a 7.5 to 13.5µm IR sensitivity range.

Designed as a modular dual-lens system, this M16B can be customized with a separately available optical image sensor to capture thermal and optical images simultaneously. With the optical sensor of your choice added to the camera, you're able to take advantage of the M16B's thermal overlay function, which enables you to easily pinpoint the exact location of hotspots, such as smoldering fires, in an optical image. Moreover, thermal radiation measurements made across the entire image area can be used to trigger an event—such as a camera alarm, a network message, or activation of a signal output—based on the temperature rising above or falling below an predefined trigger level.

The M16B has a built-in microphone and speaker for two-way audio communication, as well as an internal microSD card slot for onboard storage of footage (4GB card preinstalled). Integrated PoE technology simplifies connectivity by transferring data and power over one cable. The camera is IP66-rated for outdoor use and can be managed remotely via the MxManagementCenter VMS for Windows & Mac systems or via the MOBOTIX app for iOS devices

Temperature Events
The MX-M16TB-R237 can be programmed to automatically activate alarms based on the temperature rising above or falling below predefined limits, which helps to detect potential fire sources. Up to 20 different temperature triggers can be defined at the same time using so-called TR (Thermal Radiometry) windows within the temperature range of -40 to 1022°F. In this way critical situations can be analyzed in the control room and measures for fire prevention can be taken timely. Thermal radiometry also allows critical assets such as emergency generators, wind turbines, and radio stations to be monitored and tested remotely.
Respecting Privacy
The thermal profiles detected by the thermal image sensor shroud the identity of people, ensuring their privacy. The M16B can be set to automatically switch from thermal sensor to optical sensor (available separately) as soon as an object or person moves into a relevant surveillance area to secure high-resolution optical video evidence.
Thermal Overlay
Featuring thermal overlay functionality, the M16B makes it easy to localize hotspots in optical images. A separately available optical image sensor must be installed in the camera to take advantage of this functionality.
The M16B is PoE compatible and has a low power consumption of only 6W.
