ULIS to Supply Infrared Sensors for New Thermal Imaging Cameras

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
VEUREY-VOROIZE, France, Sept. 28, 2011 — ULIS, a subsidiary of Sofradir, has signed a contract with a California-based maker of video and security systems to supply infrared sensors for a new line of thermal imaging cameras.

The contract with Pelco, a division of Schneider Electric based in Clovis, Calif., represents ULIS’ first major contract in North America, and it marks a growing use of infrared technology among makers of visible cameras.

“ULIS is delighted about collaborating with Pelco, a global supplier of video and security systems, to bring infrared technology to camera surveillance on a wide scale,” said Jean François Delepau, managing director of ULIS.

Accordiing to the company, Pelco chose ULIS’ IR sensors for their performance, resistance to sun exposure, sensitivity and compatibility with Pelco and third-party analytics (security algorithms that detect, locate and monitor intrusions). The latter is a much-sought-after feature since it improves the ability to assess threats.

“ULIS thermal image sensors offer incredible performance for our Sarix thermal imaging cameras,” said David Dorn, director of thermal imaging at Pelco. “Pelco picked ULIS' image sensors for their incredibly low noise while offering sun-safe operation and high-reliability operation necessary for security applications. The high sensitivity of ULIS microbolometers are also a great combination with Sarix’s powerful image processing capability.”

Under the agreement, ULIS will deliver off-the-shelf TV 640×480 and 1/4 TV 384×288 format IR sensors. ULIS’ sensors will be used to provide round-the-clock surveillance in all weather conditions for a variety of applications, including port installations, public utilities and critical infrastructure surveillance.
