Weatherproof thermographic PoE camera for detection plus a 6 MP sensor module for identification

The modular design of the M15/M16 system platform ensures maximum flexibility for the MOBOTIX thermographic camera. The M15-Thermal comes standard with a thermal image sensor and a dummy module (to remain weatherproof to IP66).

In addition, it is possible to use any MOBOTIX sensor modules (6 MP, color or black and white, telephoto to Hemispheric, with or without long-pass filter/LPF) in the M15/M16 Thermal for identification. Camera software is then used to activate the dual image display on one of the two image sensors (thermal or standard) or both simultaneously.

Important Features

  • High-end thermografic camera with thermal sensor of typically 50 mK and a temperature measuring range of -40 to +550°C/-40 to +1022°F
  • The thermal sensor is capable of detecting in complete darkness and/or through smoke, smog, or a thin plastic film (limited during thick fog); applications include border protection: view of the sea in coastal areas, ships in the distance can be recognized in hazy conditions.
  • The combination with the MxActivitySensor in particular delivers extremely reliable video analysis results of person/vehicle movements, as it is now possible to block out disruptive factors such as regular movements of "cold" objects such as bushes, grass, water, clouds, waves etc.
  • No glare from strong sources of light (such as headlights, hand-held lamps).
  • Detection of hotter than average body parts or technical devices, detection of faults in photovoltaic systems, overheated machine bearings etc.
  • Low camera power consumption of max. 5.5 W (thermal sensor plus 6 MP sensor module, without additional MxBus devices).
  • The thermal image sensor is configured using camera software in a web browser; it is possible to display the thermal image with all other MOBOTIX user software (MxMC, MxEasy, MxMC, App).

Original MOBOTIX Recordings

Using TR technology for reliable detection of hazards
Thermal Radiometry (TR) allows measuring temperatures. Therefore, it is possible to trigger an alarm when reaching different temperature threshold values.

Alarm through temperature measurement using TR
A temperature of even very small heat sources can be measured, in this case, a lighted cigarette in a non-smoking area triggers an alarm.

Comparison B/W and thermographic sensor:
Even in complete darkness or in shadowed areas, the thermographic images shows detailed information about the movement of persons or objects.

Comparison color and thermographic sensor:
Differences in temperature (typ. from 50 mK) are shown in the thermographic image with different colors. An overheated machine can thus be identified easily.

Comparison B/W and thermographic sensor:
MxActivitySensor can also be used with the thermographic image and reliably detects movements of small or far away objects that the B/W sensor would not have missed.

Comparison B/W and thermographic sensor:
The thermal sensor modules also have an advantage during the day since they can detect moving objects in shadows, semi-darkness, smoke, or behind bushes.

Comparison 50 mK and 100 mK sensor:
Thanks to an NETD of 50 mK, the MOBOTIX thermal image (left) shows more details than a less powerful thermographic camera with an NETD of 100 mK (right)
