More security professionals can benefit from the power of thermal imaging. The VSR-6 will bring the power and benefits of thermal imaging to many more security professionals.
The VSR-6 features the same thermal imaging technology found in many of FLIR’s most sophisticated security and surveillance systems, but is packaged for users who have short-range security and surveillance as their primary application. It includes FLIR’s advanced image processing techniques which deliver excellent contrast regardless of scene dynamics.

The VSR-6 is a thermal imager that offers exceptional awareness in both day and night applications, both indoor and outdoor, irrespective of the prevailing light level and weather conditions. It sees events that are missed by the naked eye and conventional CCTV cameras, especially in total darkness, fog, and in smoke. Objects and people can no longer hide in the shadows, forests, bushes. Security staff can see them, monitor them and track them. Unlike other night vision systems that require low amounts of light to generate an image, the VSR-6 needs no light at all.

The camera provides reliable round-the-clock awareness without the need for supplementary equipment. It represents exceptional value for money, as simple plug and play allows quick and easy installation and set-up. The 160x120 pixels detectors delivers crisp thermal images that can be displayed on virtually any existing display that accepts composite video.

This new addition to the FLIR Systems’ security and surveillance range of thermal imaging cameras requires no supplementary lighting which itself is often expensive to install, power and maintain and in some sensitive locations is also considered too intrusive. Furthermore lighting essentially lays out a route of attack for intruders, creating shadows in which to gain access undetected. The VSR-6 creates a virtual security fence and if integrated into an existing CCTV infrastructure provides early detection and visibility 24/7 all year round.

Employing a proven long-wave 160 x 120 detector, the VSR-6, equipped with a 6 mm lens. This offers and extremely wide 52° field of view providing excellent situational awareness. Thanks to volume production FLIR Systems has been able to commercialize thermal imaging technology effectively making it affordable to a much greater range of potential users.
