Thermal Imaging Cameras (TIC)
Thermal Imaging Cameras, or TIC as they are known in the industry, are tools used by firefighters and first response emergency personnel for search and rescue, fire scene size-up, overhaul, location of victims, and advanced firefighting and first response applications. MSA currently offers an impressive TIC series, available as the EVOLUTION® 6000 and EVOLUTION® 5600.
The EVOLUTION® 6000 TIC
Over a decade ago, MSA introduced one of the first TICs. Now, their most advanced thermal imaging camera includes the Evolution® 6000 model – and it does not disappoint. The 320 x 240 high-definition core with 6 color palettes and prosperity image-processing filters provides the best picture in the industry. Everything is built into the unit, with no attachments, making it a durable and dependable camera. It also features a patented dual handle design with 3 carabiner attachment points. If you’re looking for frills, the Evolution® 6000 TIC has them, including a laser pointer, proximity flashlight, laser range finder, compass, 2X/4X zoom, and more with the advanced model options*.
The NFPA 1801-compliant model provides the industry’s best mix of features to support the thermal imaging needs of every fire department, rescue organization, strike team, or HazMat crew. Furthermore, the design is optimized to easily be incorporated with firefighting gear. The dual-handle engineering makes for easy hand-off and handling, and the high-impact, heat-resistant housing ensures that the TIC will withstand the rigors of firefighting environments. The TIC is further protected by a rubber bumper system to provide additional protection from extremely harsh environments. Given all of these attributes, there is no doubt that the Evolution® 6000 TIC is the most advanced and rugged thermal imaging camera available in today’s market.
*The unit is offered in three different packages: the basic, plus, and xtreme. See the handy comparison chart below to see what additional features are included with each model type.
