VP194-BC Series Dual Channel Thermal/HD camera is a powerful around the clock, night and day multisensor observation system developed for security applications. It allows long range observation and detection using state of the art Thermal and HD imaging technology.

VP194-BC Series Dual Channel Thermal/HD camera features a 1/2.8” CMOS sensor 2MP camera for day/night time operation and the choice of 17µ 640x480 thermal engine paired with one of several athermalized lens options: 35mm or 50mm which offer threat detection beyond 2km. The thermal camera provides superior threat detection performance day or night including identifying the threats from as close as 1m to 1km and beyond depending on the potential threat perception and weather conditions.

VP194-BC Series Dual Channel Thermal/HD camera is designed and constructed to withstand the harshest environmental conditions, including rain, direct sunlight, humidity and dust.
