Dräger UCF® 8000
The thermal imaging camera Dräger UCF 8000 delivers excellent images to firefighters even if visibility is less than optimal. A resolution of 384 x 288 pixel as well as a 2 x zoom provide a detailed impression of the situation. When the current image is always right in front of your eyes, rooms and the immediate vicinity are searched quickly and safely.
The risk of overlooking a detail is especially likely and a problem in difficult situations. Thanks to the “application switch” (application-specific operating modes), the Dräger UCF 8000 makes it possible to optimize the image display of the camera for the specific task at hand. For example, the camera’s display can be optimized for finding persons or finding sources of fire.
One of three additional operating modes is quickly selected just by pressing a button:
- Fire (firefighting)
- Persons (search and rescue)
- ThermalScan (searching for hotspots)
This additional selection provides firefighters with better insights in any situation.
This camera is reliable even in the roughest and toughest environments and with the most demanding applications. Equipped with an almost indestructible housing, the Dräger UCF 8000 is heat-resistant and withstands usage-specific mechanical stresses with ease. Due to their high protection class of IP67, Dräger UCF 8000 cameras are resistant to typical conditions encountered during an operation such as water and dust. Modern lithium-ion battery technology yields operating times of up to four hours and provides users with the peace of mind needed during long runs.
Using the thermal imaging camera Dräger UCF 8000 means one hand is always free: an invaluable plus and added freedom of movement for the user. The compact design and well-balanced low weight of only 1.4 kg (3 lbs) make the camera easy to operate with just one hand. The intuitive operation makes it possible to use the camera safely and to utilize its functionality to the full extent even in highly stressful situations. A very sturdy attachable “crawling plate” permits the user to brace himself or herself on the ground without letting go of the camera. Also offering various carrying options for optimal carrying comfort.
An explosive atmosphere may be prevalent especially for calls where there is no fire. This means the equipment used must not be a source of ignition. The Dräger UCF 8000 is the tool of choice even in these types of situations. The device is intrinsically safe and approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres including zone 1 according to ATEX.
Optimized image processing provides a quicker overview in just seconds. The Dräger UCF 8000 even makes it possible to “see around corners” if the equipment limits the freedom of movement or the field of view. The “snapshot”-function is used to provide a temporary freeze-frame of thermal image, which can then be viewed on the display. This allows personnel to examine and check out even difficult to access areas quickly and safely. The integrated laser pointer significantly simplifies pointing out the position of hazards – such as hotspots – to other team members and clearly defines the path of attack. The Dräger UCF 8000 always offers a high temperature resolution – even in hot situations. This makes it possible to detect cooler objects such as people even in the vicinity of a fire with best possible resolution. Integrated video- and sound recording functions as well as the ability to record single images are part of the Dräger UCF 8000 delivery scope.
The thermal imaging camera is supplied with USB 2.0 interface by default, which makes it possible to configure the camera (e.g. setting an individual start image) and transfer the thermal image directly to a PC. Recorded images and video sequences used for documentation purposes can also be transferred to a PC.
Should the recording capacity of approx. two hours be exhausted, the black box of the UCF 8000, just like the UCF 7000, guarantees further use of the thermal imaging video. If the memory is full, the camera will simply record over the beginning of the recording. The recording continues automatically.
