PATC F Series 20X HD Color Zoom Camera – PLUS – Thermal Imager

PATC-F Series dual payload thermal PTZ camera is a maritime standard ruggedized thermal vision system, housed with aluminum, the camera is anti-corrosive and IP67 rated, enabling it to work properly even in tough sea environment.


This PTZ is Marine Rated and has a Dual Camera Payload: a 20X HD Color Zoom camera – combined with a High Sensitivity Thermal Imaging camera. We also give you 3 outputs for this camera – Visual Video / Thermal Video / and a Switching Output that switches back & forth between the two camera types. This camera also

The Thermal Imager camera has two selectable modes for seeing the thermal heat signatures: Black Hot and White Hot. Each type can be selected according to preference, or to help distinguish in cool water or around engines or other hot environments.

Other Standard features include; Aluminum case rated to IP67, Surge & Lightning protection, Built-in Defogging system (working temperatures from -20C to +55C),Radar Tracking(Optional) PATC F Series camera recives, reads, analyzes NMEA0183 strings from Radar and manages algorithm calculation from current vessel position to target(s), finally camera move to view the gargets actively. Video Tracking(Optional), the function allows a target lock on the video image and allow tracking the camera keeps pointed on it. Continuous Thermal Imaging, the uncooled 640×480/384×288 thermal core is with 25hz/30hz, provides clear and continuous thermal images. Indicators On Thermal & Daylight Images, position indicators, status and scene icons are displayed on both thermal & daylight cameras, providing direct and exact information to assist navigation. Image Freeze Capability On Thermal & Daylight Images, both cameras support to freeze images on demand, enable to view more details of specific iamges. Ethernet & Serial Control Via Keyboard Controller, optional maritime keyboard controller has booth Ethernet and RS485 interface to control the camera, the controller is used to pan tilt and zoom the camera, operate the camera functions with its buttons and OSD menu, and also move the camera into or out of standby mode.


If you are not yet familiar with Thermal Imaging cameras, then you are about to learn just how useful they are.

A normal camera can be blinded by snow, rain or the glare from a puddle of water. In fact, even fog can render a normal camera ineffective. The PATC-F Series Thermal PTZ from Rugged Marine, can see through challenging conditions and effectively guard areas in just about any weather.

Thermal Imaging cameras excel at night. Excess heat has dissipated after nightfall and the contrast between warm bodies and hot engines against background heat is much more evident.

Thermal Imaging cameras can also see heat at great distances. Your normal security camera that uses Infrared Lighting will only illuminate a small area in front of the camera. But a Thermal camera does not need any type of lighting and does not care if it is totally dark.

Thermal cameras are used extensively in Marine environments and on ships and tugboats, but are also great at monitoring storage yards, railroad yards, perimeter fencing, roadways and any other locations that need to be able to detect people and vehicles or vessels at long distances.

The PATC-F Series Thermal PTZ can be ordered with either a 19mm medium distance lens or a 40mm long distance Thermal Imager lens (the Color Zoom Camera has a SONY FCB-EV7320 HD 20X Zoom Module – 4.7mm to 94mm lens – and 12X Digital Zoom).

The PATC-F Mobile Thermal PTZ also has a “SAFE” Mode that hides both cameras away during bright light or other hazardous events.

Introduction of the camera as well as classification and advantages

People live without cameras in buses, malls, traffic, we everywhere! One of the big debates as of late is Analog or IP Cameras when installing a new CCTV system. This debate has heated up recently with new technology that makes an IP setup a very viable option. To give a quick summary, Analog cameras talk with a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) via a coaxial cable. The camera footage is decoded at the actual DVR. An IP camera performs its decoding at the camera itself and transmits its footage via a Cat5 or Cat6 cable. Mini Size IR Dome Camera are basically an extra device on your local area network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN).

Analog camera systems are very straight forward and easy to install. Simply purchase a DVR with the number of channels you would like (# of cameras you want to add), purchase a power supply and any analog camera on the market. The next step would be to run a coaxial cable such as RG59 or RG6 between the DVR and the camera. You can even buy cable that has power wire attached. Cameras typically take 12VDC or 24VDC/VAC. Plug the camera in, power up the DVR and you are good to go with the exception of minor programming and network tweaking. The great part about analog systems is that if the power goes out the DVR will keep recording (assuming you have it backed up with an emergency power supply). Camera power supplies are usually backed up with 12V brick batteries. The SD Video Conference Camera can be tied into your LAN and the footage can be viewed from any PC that has authority on that network.

When we want to buy the camera, we should be a better understanding of it, which we buy is of great help. best china video cameras systems are going to be the future, there is no way around it. They will eventually overtake the Analog market and will dominate the CCTV world. IP Camera systems can be just as easy to install as Analog assuming you have some networking knowledge. Basically, the way that an IP system works is that each camera gets power (as stated in the Analog section) such as 12VDC or 24VDC/VAC and a Cat5 or Cat6 cable. The network cable would be tied into the LAN or WAN and would allow the camera to talk over the network. Network cabling does have its limitations though, you can only run about 328′ with a Cat5 or Cat6 cable. This is no big deal if you have a newer building and it has been wired for network drops. IP camera systems use a Network Video Recorder (NVR) instead of a DVR. They function similarly, with an interchangeable hard drive that is written to. The big difference is that cameras terminate using a network cable instead of a coax cable on an NVR. Simply plug a camera into the nearest network jack and power the camera up, configure the NVR to see the camera and you are off.
