Avon Protection awarded NFPA1801:2018 approval for thermal imaging camera range

Avon Protection announces NFPA1801:2018 certification of its argus range of thermal imaging cameras which include the Mi-TIC E, Mi-TIC E L, Mi-TIC 320 and Mi-TIC S models. Once again, Avon Protection offers the most diverse range NFPA compliant thermal imaging cameras.

NFPA1801:2018 is the latest edition of the ‘Standard on Thermal Imagers for the Fire Service’. First published in 2013, the standard defines the minimum performance requirements for Thermal Imagers worldwide.

Key changes in the 2018 edition include limitations on cameras with visible light sensors; an increased battery run-time of at least 2 hours while capturing video: a requirement for a refresh rate of at least 25Hz; and new battery locking mechanism requirements.

The NFPA1801:2018 certification includes the introduction of the IGNIS Engine to all Mi-TIC models. The IGNIS Engine, along with its sensor and lens improvements, provides unrivalled scene detail, enabling firefighters to see more of the important background details such as exit points, obstacles and casualties, even in the presence of a fully developed fire.

Commenting on the approvals, Richard Tweddle, Thermal Imaging Product Manager said, “We have redesigned, redeveloped and redefined thermal imaging, we continue to meet the needs of our customers to ensure they remain safe in the most demanding of environments.”

The combination of NFPA1801:2018 certification along with the IGNIS engine maintains Avon’s position as the leading suppliers of NFPA1801 certified Thermal Imagers in the World.
