On activation it alerts the operator with the use of volt-free contacts in conjunction with real time visual representation of what the camera is ‘seeing’. This allows the user to make the correct decision on what course of action is to be taken.
For multi-camera installations, multiple VFD-1's can be linked together with ease, using the two available Ethernet connections on each unit, removing the need of an additional network switch.
VFD-1 is an intelligent, compact, single channel IP video encoder, used to analyse the video content of a camera input for the presence of fire.
Using sophisticated, reliable algorithms it can detect smoke or flame at the early stages of a potential incident, alerting the operator before serious damage occurs, saving money and even lives.
