Acal brings Silent Sentinel's tough-nut Oculus and its new big brother Aeron to the European market
Acal BFi is working with Silent Sentinel, the UK manufacturer of high specification surveillance systems, to bring the highly successful Oculus and their new, larger, Aeron to the European Market. With more than 20,000 units in operation throughout the world, the Oculus has set the standard for the last 10 years and now has a larger big brother which brings even more capability to the already extensive Silent Sentinel product range.
The Oculus is a professional vandal-resistant, high speed continuous rotation PTZ. The housing is cast in aluminium and then anodised and powder coated to allow the unit to be installed in the most harsh and challenging environments. With video, low-light, infra-red and white light illumination or with combined thermal imaging and video options the Oculus already meets many user needs. However, with the addition of Aeron into the product range, longer range video and thermal imaging can be deployed with the same user interface and manufacturing standards as Oculus.
Aeron is able to extend the range of Infra-Red from 100m with Oculus to 200m and thermal imaging man detection from 1.7km with Oculus to 3.5km. These longer operating ranges are achieved through the larger housing of Aeron enabling more advanced video modules and thermal imaging cores to be housed.
Aeron also has the latest thermal imaging modules with a 35-105mm optical zoom option. There is also a radiometric thermal imaging version of Aeron which, with configurable precision temperature measurement within the field of view, is being used for early warning of the risk of fire outbreaks. Aeron, much like Oculus, has the option to carry both a thermal imaging core and a video module side by side which makes this a highly flexible surveillance solution.
