The Bosch MIC-612HFALB36N High Resolution Thermal Camera (50mm, NTSC) has been designed to offer an extremely reliable, robust, and high-quality surveillance solution for security applications that demand excellent performance. Precision engineered to exacting standards, the camera offers a ruggedized dual optical / thermal image capture solution.
Image control and quality, which are integral aspects of any PTZ camera, are delivered by this MIC612HF thermal camera. A high-quality day & night camera core with 36x optical zoom lens and a full 12x digital zoom, and a high-performance, un-cooled thermal imaging core sit side-by-side within the housing.
This MIC612HF camera has 2 video outputs: one for the optical camera, and one that is user-switchable between the optical camera and the thermal imager. The optical camera provides 550 TVL of horizontal resolution for outstanding clarity and image detail, and incorporates Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) that dramatically improves the dynamic range by 128 times and results in clear image reproduction in extreme, high-contrast environments. Features of AutoScaling (proportional zoom) and AutoPivot (automatically rotates and flips the camera) ensure optimal control.
Day & night capabilities and outstanding sensitivity make this camera an excellent performer in all lighting conditions. In low light, the optical camera automatically switches from color to monochrome mode by removing the IR filter to boost sensitivity while maintaining superior image quality. For operation in dark conditions, the SensUp control feature automatically reduces the shutter speed to as little as 1 second. This increases sensitivity by more than 50 times.
In addition to low light applications, the optical camera is an excellent performer when viewing under a sodium vapor lamp (for example, a street or tunnel lamp), which normally gives a yellowish tint to images. The camera automatically compensates and restores objects to their original color. The thermal imager has user-selectable color options including White Hot, Black Hot, and many others, and built-in sun protection that allows the camera to self-heal if pointed directly at the sun.
The MIC612HF camera incorporates Bosch's standard controller interface supporting familiar on-screen menus and multiple protocols, including Bosch Biphase (OSRD), Bilinx, and Pelco P and D. This makes it simple to integrate and use the camera within systems that already use Bosch AutoDome cameras and systems.
High Performance PTZ Operations
Brushless motor technology ensures reliable operation with a full 360° continuous rotation pan for excellent viewing capability. The camera supports 99 pre-positions and 2 styles of Guard Tours: Preset and Record / Playback. The preset tour has capability for up to 99 pre-positions with a configurable dwell time between pre-positions, and can be customized as to the order and frequency each preset is visited. The camera also provides support for 2 recorded tours, which have a combined duration of 15 minutes of movements. These are recorded macros of an operator's movements, including pan, tilt, and zoom activities, and can be played back in a continuous manner.
Superior Privacy Masking and Image Stabilization
The MIC612HF camera has 24 individual privacy masks, with up to 8 masks displayed in the same scene. These privacy masks can be programmed with 3, 4, or even 5 corners each to cover more complex shapes. Each mask changes size and shape smoothly and quickly, ensuring that the covered object cannot be seen. Each mask can appear in black, white, or blurred. Blurred is useful when privacy is an issue, but determining the presence of motion is still required. As PTZ cameras continue to increase their optical zoom capabilities, image stabilization becomes critical to eliminate movement caused by unstable camera mounts. A mere quarter-inch of movement of the camera mount can shift the field of view by more than 20' (6 m) when the camera is zoomed to a high value. This can render images unusable. Image stabilization algorithms in the optical camera reduce camera shake in both vertical and horizontal axes, resulting in excellent image clarity (pixel displacement up to ±10% for frequencies up to 10 Hz) without reducing camera sensitivity.
Easy Installation and Servicing
The MIC612HF camera is compatible with all MIC series brackets and control equipment for easy installation, integration, and operation. These brackets, as well as connection cables and power supply units for the camera, are sold separately. The camera can be installed upright or inverted. No matter the installation position, the camera will operate faultlessly. The Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices (CTFID) allows users to control the PTZ, change camera settings, and update firmware from remote locations without the need for additional wiring. The camera has advanced built-in diagnostics to simplify service and minimize downtime. Using Onscreen Display (OSD), a technician can quickly and easily check critical parameters (such as internal temperature) to verify that the camera is functioning within acceptable operating limits.
Robust Design Rated to an Industry-Leading IP68 / NEMA 6P
Subjected and certified to rigorous dust and immersion tests (IP68 and NEMA 6P), this camera is perfectly suited for installation in even the most unforgiving environments. The reliable 'O' ring seal completely protects the internal components from the external environment, meaning that there is no need to pressurize the camera. To guarantee the seal, the factory subjects the camera to a 100% leak test before shipping. In addition, the camera's aluminum construction is protected by two different processes: first, the camera receives a coating of Alodine 5200, a chromate-free conversion coating of aluminum that is used in the aerospace and defense industries where a protective layer is required to improve corrosion resistance. Second, it receives a robust, powder coat layer of paint.
Integrated Long-Life Silicone Wiper
Thanks to its integrated wiper, the MIC612HF camera is able to deliver excellent image quality regardless of the weather.
