XBlock® Outdoor IP Dual Surveillance Zoom HD/LWIR Camera

Combining the Zoom HD Sony FCB-EV7520/J Block Camera and the Sierra-Olympia Tenum LWIR Camera, the XBlock® Outdoor IP Dual Surveillance Zoom HD/LWIR Camera is IP67-rated and ideal outdoor surveillance, marine navigation & safety, or military & law enforcement robotics camera system. The Tenum LWIR long-wave infrared (LWIR) wide-angle camera provides thermal imaging to assess areas of interest in low-light environments. At the same time, the Sony FCB-EV7520, with Auto ICR (Auto IR-cut Filter Removal) and powerful 30x zoom, pinpoint those areas of interest with high-quality images and brilliant lighting capability.

Sony's 1/2.8" CMOS image sensor (approx. 2.14 million effective pixels) produces digital FULL HD (high definition) high-quality images. In high sensitivity mode, the camera can operate effectively in lighting levels as low as 0.35 lx (ICR on).

Paired with the Tenum 640 LWIR, with a microbolometer having a ten μm pixel pitch and exceptional light sensitivity, the camera combination is a complete, low-light, and outdoor IP67-rated camera package.

Stream Full HD video through and network with IP video and camera communication. The Sony FCB-EV7520 is a constant in the camera housing but choose from 50°, 25°, or 18° HFOV lens options for its paired Tenum.
