Monitoring Seaports with Infrared Cameras
Monitoring ports brings with it a multitude of challenges. For example, a very large unclear area must always be kept completely in view. The goods of regularly arriving ships are also monitored for safety purposes during loading and unloading. Furthermore, the weather conditions – especially at seaports – are changing permanently.
Thermal imaging cameras effectively round off a complex security system in addition to visual cameras, security services, and ship and port personnel. They enable 24/7 monitoring, function even in the most adverse environmental conditions, allow the reliable measurement of temperatures of people and vehicles, infrastructure buildings and equipment, as well as cargo and stored goods even over long distances.
FIRE-SCAN is particularly suitable for monitoring mass and bulk materials in order to detect dangerous fire pockets or heating at an early stage. High geometrical resolution of the infrared camera in the monitoring system, combined with its installation on pan/tilt heads, allows targeted and detailed observation of particularly critical monitoring sectors in detail.
