Dahua launches thermal monocular camera series

CCTV Handbook 2022 Surveillance

Dahua Technology has launched its Thermal Monocular Camera Series, the M Series. They are handheld cameras tailored for outdoor scenarios such as hiking, wildlife conservation, search and rescue missions, hunting, etc.

The M Series provides three model options (M20, M40 and M60) based on the image resolution of the cameras, while each of them includes multiple models with different lenses to meet diverse customer needs. With a 12 μm Vox sensor, the maximum resolution can reach 640 x 512.

Reliable in tough outdoor conditions

The ergonomic design of the M Series offers a comfortable handheld experience and convenient operation. These cameras meet the IP67 standard of Ingress Protection Rating, pass the 2-metre drop test, and function under temperatures of -20°C to 55°C, which means they can work steadily in tough environments.

Even under harsh weather, the M Series is able to capture sharp thermal images at a smooth and stable frame rate and produce clear and detailed visuals of running targets and moving vehicles. Thanks to advanced thermal imaging technology, the series can detect animals and objects in complete darkness, haze, or through glaring light.

The M Series’ weight ranges from 350 g to 500 g. Its internal Lithium battery supports up to nine hours of battery life (tested at 25°C) and a USB cable power supply.

Advanced intelligence for various needs

The M Series offers a choice of four colour palettes to meet users’ observation needs in different scenarios. ‘White Hot’ is suitable for observing active targets, ‘Iron Red’ can improve the comfort of long-term observation under night conditions, ‘Rainbow’ is convenient for users to quickly identify targets, and ‘Alarm’ helps to quickly detect the emergence of high-temperature targets.

The M Series also has a crucial function of automatic fire detection up to 1 km (fire size: 2 m x 2 m). Forest management personnel can use it to conduct inspections to quickly find fires and arrange for firefighters to deal with them.

In addition, the M Series supports distance measurement. By selecting the measurement target type (e.g., wolf, rabbit, human, custom) and placing the measurement line on the top and bottom of the target, the approximate distance of the target can be obtained.

For networking, the M Series is equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot module. By connecting the cameras to the smartphone via Wi-Fi hotspot, users can transmit real-time images, set up cameras, store pictures and videos, and browse history files on the DH Thermal app. Moreover, videos and pictures can be exported and shared via a USB cable connected to a computer.

Better user experience

With the built-in video recorder and display, Dahua Thermal Monocular Camera Series can present great views to users and take pictures and videos at any time. Apart from the Micro USB ports, the camera series also has CVBS ports to connect to an external display screen for a better visual experience.

In addition, the series has an SD card slot that supports a maximum of 256&nbps;GB of storage space, which can significantly expand the storage capacity of the cameras. A built-in distance sensor can detect whether the device is being used; if no one is within a certain distance for a set period, the device will automatically switch to standby mode. The display will be turned off to preserve battery life while other functions are still online. Users can re-start operating by stepping closer to the device or pressing the power button.
