FLIR ITS-Series Rail Camera
The FLIR ITS-Series Rail is an integrated thermal camera and detector for people and obstacle detection in public transportation environments. The FLIR ITS-Series Rail camera does not need light to operate, but uses thermal energy to detect vehicles, people and large animals in the darkest of nights, over a long range and in the most difficult weather conditions. The result is reliable, 24/7 detection for a wide range of applications.
The FLIR ITS-Series Rail is a cost-effective solution for the detection of people falling off a platform, entering a tunnel or walking on rail tracks. The system uses advanced detection algorithms in order to accurately detect people without being triggered by unwanted objects like small animals or passing trains.
The FLIR ITS-Series Rail can be used to prevent collisions by detecting vehicles that are stuck on a level crossing and blocking the passage of an approaching train. The intelligent thermal sensor will transmit its detection information over contact closures or over a TCP/IP network to a control room, where the detection event andlive thermal video is shown. This information can be used by an operator to decide whether an oncoming train must be stopped or slowed down.
