Most firefighting equipment is made from aluminium, but oxygen concentrations can reach dangerous levels inside a burning building. Unplanned discharges of water in the case of an emergency and the release of CO2 and other gases have fatal consequences. The helmet mounted thermal imaging camera is an excellent solution for detecting fires and hot spots inside the building. The integrated sensor and the lamp provide the necessary light and far-infrared radiation. With the help of thermal imaging and the integrated lamp, emergency workers can see people and objects in dark and smoke-filled environments, even in the event of total darkness or light conditions that render them invisible to the human eye. For example, when searching for a person in the dark, it is unnecessary to shine the flashlight all over the room. Instead, the thermal camera detects the presence of a person in the area to be searched. The sensor equipment is powerful enough to pick up the heat signature of even small objects. The lamp integrated directly into the thermal camera provides the necessary light and far-infrared radiation.
What are the benefits?
- The visibility of a firefighter is often limited by the size of their helmet and the shape of their face. That’s where thermal imaging can be crucial. If you can see through heat, you can see through smoke—which means better detection of fires and other emergencies and better protection for firefighters. Combining an incandescent light source and intensified thermal energy can create a clearer picture than any human eye could produce, providing a new level of visibility to firefighters, first responders, and individuals in emergency situations.
- Hands-free operation is one of the benefits of helmet mounted thermal imaging cameras. Most people think it’s complicated to operate a head-mounted thermal imaging camera, but that’s not true. All you have to do is just put on the helmet and start using the thermal imaging camera in a normal way. You can turn the shutter button or trigger the automatic trigger mode with free hands. It’s the best option for people who want to operate the thermal imaging camera while driving or working.
- The power supply of helmet-mounted thermal imaging cameras is one of the benefits. The battery life depends on the type of thermal imaging camera mounted on the helmet, the size and features of the camera, and other factors.
- In harsh environments, why do many people use helmet-mounted thermal imaging cameras? Because of the ruggedness. This thermal imaging helmet is made from high-quality materials and can withstand impact and harsh environments like cold, rain, snow, etc. Another benefit of this device is that it makes tasks easier for workers because they can see objects in their line of sight.
- Ergonomic design is one of the benefits of helmet mounted thermal imaging cameras. Because the helmet mount fits comfortably on your head, it gives you a good view of your surroundings. The use of thermal cameras enables users to see through objects and can help reduce the risk of injury. They also detect potential hazards, such as burning wires or overheating equipment. Additionally, they can be used to detect heat loss in buildings and industrial facilities, which could lead to higher operating costs and downtime.
Summary – The helmet mounted thermal imaging camera from Accuopt is a high quality device with an excellent price-to-quality ratio. The device can capture a wide field of view of the wearer’s surroundings while protecting their eyes from the harsh conditions they would be exposed to in the wild. The camera is also lightweight, so it won’t weigh down the user’s head and cause discomfort. It’s also easy to operate, which means that anyone can use it regardless of their experience level.
