The M5 PTZ Thermal Imager is the latest in rugged and affordable pan tilt multi sensor imaging systems. The M5 PTZ incorporates a high resolution advanced thermal sensor and a long range zoom CCTV camera in one low profile package. The M5 Thermal Imager is as easy to install and configure as it is powerful. The system utilizes all internal wiring and electronics which means that there are no external interface boxes to mount and no external wires which can become failure points.
Basic configuration only requires power, serial and video connections directly to the supplied main cable. Pre loaded common CCTV camera protocols allow the M5 to be integrated into any new or existing security installation. Advanced (optional) configurations allow the M5 Thermal Imager PTZ to satisfy almost any requirement. Options include: wireless video / control, IP network compatible thermal system, CAT-5 connections, slew to cue configurations, DVR control and monitoring, video analytics and more. The M5 can also be custom configured to your unique application.
The M5® uses a simplified military style connector with a reduced pin set to maximize reliability. Older systems used massive connectors with very dense pin populations sometimes as many as 20-30 pins in a single connector. This translated to huge main system cables often in excess of 1" in diameter. The old technology made installing the main system cable very difficult due to its size and rigidity. These gigantic densely packed cables were very expensive and by packing so many wires into a tight design they were prone to failure. The M5® uses a single twist on type connector with only 8 pins. There is NO interface box or external electronics of any kind which greatly reduces installation time, failure points and most importantly cost. The lightweight and small size of the M5® system cable makes it easier to install in even the most cramped conduits.
You might think that an imager at this price point might sacrifice features in favor of low cost. This is not the case with the M5®. The PTZ is fully gasket sealed and has removable sun shield to protect the system in almost any weather condition. On top of the necessities like a weatherized housing, the M5® sports the hottest upgrades like an integrated remote wiper. Most high end thermal camera PTZ systems consider the wiper an extra cost optional item. We have never bought a car with optional windshield wipers! The better cars even come with wipers for the headlights.
The heart and soul of the M5® is its advanced thermal imaging system coupled with a crystal clear coated thermal optic train that produces a crisp thermal video of your surroundings 24/7 and in any lighting condition. The real advantage of the system lies in its ability to show you what cant be seen with the naked eye. Thermal imagers are a true passive technology that images the infrared energy that is emitted from every object in the universe. This is very different from cheap infrared light cameras (aka "parking lot cameras") that shine an invisible light a few feet away and then image the light that bounces back. The M5® senses the long wavelength infrared energy that is always emitted from everything around you. A finely tuned optical train focuses this energy onto the M5® thermal sensor chip which provides you with a thermal video image of your surroundings. This is true "see in the dark technology" with NO LIGHT shinning out of the system to give away the position of the cameras. The M5® thermal chip doesnt even "see" light so it cant be fooled or blinded by light sources (even daylight). 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the M5® multi-sensor thermal technology will see everything.

PTZ Thermal Imaging FLIR cameras, tailored for border security, can seamlessly integrate with radars and other sensors in a "slew-to-cue" setup, enabling real-time detection, recognition, and identification of threats. SPI's thermal imaging systems offer a comprehensive solution, adaptable to various mounting locations. Additionally, SPI can integrate the slew-to-cue x99 radar, offering benefits like rapid setup, user-friendly operation, and resilience to severe weather. This radar, with its lightweight design and vast detection range, complements the PTZ cameras by providing an enhanced surveillance cover, ensuring round-the-clock security across all terrains and weather conditions.
"Slew-to-cue" is a term used in surveillance and defense sectors, referring to the automation process where a sensor or camera system (e.g., PTZ Thermal Imaging FLIR camera) automatically redirects its focus (slews) to a specified coordinate or target (cue) provided by another sensor or detection system (e.g., radar). This coordination enables quicker response and assessment of potential threats, enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of a surveillance or security system.

OGI, or Optical Gas Imaging, allows for visualization of gas emissions through specialized thermal imaging cameras, providing a crucial tool for monitoring and detecting gas leaks in real-time.
Image stabilization counteracts camera shake to maintain clear imagery. On the other hand, gyro stabilization uses gyroscope sensors to maintain a steady orientation, especially during movement, providing a stable platform for the camera. While both aim at reducing blurriness and maintaining image clarity, gyro stabilization is more advanced and effective in counteracting movements in three dimensions, making it highly suitable for aerial or marine surveillance scenarios.
