Surveillance and Security Applications for Infrared Zoom
Surveillance and security applications require the ability to see clearly in day or night. These applications tend to be long focal length lenses, for which the Aldebaran and our new 20X, 30-600 mm lens are particularly suited.
Zoom lenses allow you to first scan a wide angle along a perimeter to look for something of interest (such as someone breaching the perimeter), then quickly zoom up on the object or person to see if they are a potential threat.
From a mast or tower, or from inside a protected facility, the outside area can be continually scanned for human or animal life. Viewed through an infrared lens, the view appears as clear and bright at all times regardless of the ambient light level.
With lenses that can range from wide angle to miles away, infrared is equally effective for a national border or a protected area. If something suspicious is spotted, the zoom function allows the user to quickly and easily bring up close detail without risking personnel.
Buying from IRZoom.com
As any buyer will tell you, often the lens selection process is bogged down in details and complexity. At IRZoom.com, it’s our goal to simplify the process.
With stock or custom choices, we can either provide a lens, a lens already integrated to a sensor, or a variety of options, given the application requirements. We generally work directly with camera suppliers to ensure a match, then have you purchase the lens from us and the camera from the supplier. If you have any questions about whether one of our lenses can be integrated with a particular camera, or need us to provide the integration, just ask.
Stock Lenses & Camera Systems
We recommend you begin the process by visiting the Products section of our website, where you can scroll through our stock selection or narrow your search by function using our guided search engine. We are also happy to work with you directly. We’ll simply need to gather some details on your application or need. Although a detailed specification is preferred, a simple phone call or one paragraph description will do to get things moving along.
