ULIS wraps deal to supply IR sensors for new thermal imaging cameras

Sept. 29, 2011
Veurey-Voroize, France--Infrared (IR) imaging sensors manufacturer ULIS has signed a contract with Pelco video and security systems developer and manufacturer Schneider Electric to supply IR sensors for Pelco’s Sarix thermal imaging cameras.

Veurey-Voroize, France--Infrared (IR) imaging sensors manufacturer ULIS has signed a contract with Pelco video and security systems developer and manufacturer Schneider Electric to supply IR sensors for Pelco’s Sarix thermal imaging cameras.

This marks ULIS’ first major contract win in North America, as well as a growing trend in IR technology among makers of visible cameras who produce an estimated 20–25 million units per year worldwide, according to industry insiders. IR technology is used to visualize objects in total darkness and through smoke, fog, and rain.

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).

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