The NOPTIC is the one and only Spotlight Mount (patent pending) provides quick pan and tilt capabilities required for successful surveillance.


Cheap imitators that move slow, or are fixed mounted, just can’t deliver the results like a NOPTIC. The vehicle mounted thermal imaging camera enables you to conduct quick and easy Night Vision surveillance with its highly acclaimed panning and tilting capabilities. In addition, the ability to pan and tilt the camera, with the spotlight off, allows for the timely and tactical use of the spotlight.

Hand-held Thermal Imaging devices can spend most of their time in the trunk or back at the office, but the NOPTIC is at work all night, every night, Since the camera uses passive infrared sensing technology, it is not affected by oncoming headlights.  The camera operates in complete darkness and at temperature extremes of  – 40°F to 176°F. It also has a built-in lens heater that activates automatically at temperatures below 40°F to keep the lens clear of frost and ice.
     

FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW
 

The NOPTIC PSV-1000 is the newest addition to KERIF Night Vision's family of infrared Thermal Imaging Systems. Smaller than the now discontinued Thermal-Eye 5000xp, and almost every other Thermal Imager on the market, in addition to design accommodations, the NOPTIC is able to withstand the harsher environments of marine applications.

The NOPTIC contains the infrared sensor and the captured infrared scene, now converted to a real-time black/white video signal, is available to send from the NTSC RCA output. For existing monitor systems, an optional RCA to USB capture device is available. Stand alone systems require RCA cable & Video Monitor or Recorder. The control module has a universal RCA jack for video output. Due to the many different cable connectors used in the various video systems on the market, you will need to determine and obtain the specific video input connector required for your video system.

INFRARED IMAGING AND APPLICATIONS  
Visible light, the rainbow of colors that can be sensed by the human eye, is electromagnetic radiation within a certain frequency band. 'Infra-' means 'below' and 'red' is the lowest frequency in the visible spectrum. Hence, 'infrared' (or 'IR') refers to that range of electromagnetic wavelengths just below that capable of sight by the human eye. In the IR range, energy from a scene is not sensed by sight (light) but rather by temperature.

INFRARED IMAGING AND APPLICATIONS  
     Visible light, the rainbow of colors that can be sensed by the human eye, is electromagnetic radiation within a certain frequency band. 'Infra-' means 'below' and 'red' is the lowest frequency in the visible spectrum. Hence, 'infrared' (or 'IR') refers to that range of electromagnetic wavelengths just below that capable of sight by the human eye. In the IR range, energy from a scene is not sensed by sight (light) but rather by temperature.

     Most objects that you see are not radiating visible light but instead, are reflecting light radiated from another source. Most objects have to be heated to extreme temperatures before they radiate energy in the visible light spectrum. However, energy in the infrared range is being radiated by all objects that are above absolute zero (-459F). Hence, everything has a thermal signature, regardless of light conditions.

The NOPTIC PSV-1000 infrared detecting system distinguishes between very small differences in thermal (infrared) radiation, converts it to electrical signals, amplifies those differences, and reproduces them correspondingly in the visible light (video) range. Powerful advantages are achieved in being able to turn a pitch black night into a black and white TV image of the scene. As your infrared knowledge and experience grows, further applications will develop as you recognize heat clues beyond the naked eye in both day and night conditions.

Some advantages and success stories that can be achieved thru application of your PSV-1000 are:

SAFETY

* See without being seen. Allows stealth surveillance and approach from within safety of vehicle.

* Element of surprise gives better situational control. Reduces opportunity for suspect flight and high speed chases.

* Night viewing by sight requires flashlights and searchlights which reveals the pursuer's position, giving advantage to the suspect who wants to stay hidden or surprise attack.
* Infrared viewing allows safer search capability while the suspect remains 'in the dark' until you are ready to illuminate them with your spotlight.

* In search and rescue, seconds count. Missing or injured persons can be located before lengthy search deployments are required.

* Docks, piers, boats, and other obstacles can all present dangerous hazards to marine navigation especially at night or in fog.

EFFICIENCY
* With the PSV-1000, these objects are clearly visible against the uniform temperature of the surrounding water.

* Infrared won't 'bloom' or become blinded when hit with bright light such as headlights.

* Wide areas can be scanned to 'clear an area', establish a perimeter or more quickly locate a missing person or "man-overboard".

* An area can be brought under control in less time.

* Manpower and equipment resources are saved by reducing the need for foot patrol, K-9, helicopter, and flashlight expenses.

* Warmth on a car's engine compartment or tires yields evidence of when it was last driven.

* A hot car hidden in a cold parking lot stands out.
* Also, a suspect vehicle that is cold might be considered abandoned, reducing the chance and need to wait for his return.

* Buoys and markers are easily "seen", even in pitch black or poor weather, allowing for efficient navigation.

 

EFFECTIVENESS
* While light reflects off of foliage, infrared from a person behind a bush is radiated through the foliage, allowing better detection in both day and night conditions.

* Tossed weapons and contraband are thermally evident against cold ground.

* Accident investigations yield heat clues in latent tire tracks and skid marks, unseen by sight.

* IR reflects off windows, metal structures, smooth concrete walls, and other opaque surfaces providing a mirroring ability around corners in day or night.

* Air gaps and surfaces touching each other can give heat clues as to hidden compartments, fluid levels, etc.

* Infrared is less prone to scattering and absorption by smoke, dust, and fog.

Servicing

Do not attempt to service the NOPTIC PSV-1000 system as it may void the warranty. The NOPTIC PSV-1000 is not intended or warranted for the following environmental conditions.

RESTRICTIONS OF USE

bullet Repeated exposure and operation in sand or other abrasive grit.
bullet Mounting orientations other than upright for the Pan/Tilt Camera.
bullet High vibration or shock beyond that of typical on-road, off-road, or sea-faring vessel conditions.
bullet Outdoor exposure to the elements for the Electronics Module.
bullet Applications that subject front of Pan/Tilt Camera to oncoming debris capable of breaking the front optics such as rocks and low hanging branches. (See 'Debris Protection' feature in Care and Maintenance section).


Installation of the NOPTIC system is straight-forward. Utilizing the installation instructions included with your NOPTIC shipment, simply remove your existing post mount spotlight head and replace it with the NOPTIC camera /spotlight head assembly. The systems wiring can then be routed as noted in the Installation procedure. Your local fleet installer can also provide other options for wire routing in the vehicle depending on your particular viewing application. See your Video System Operating Manual to determine connector type and for ordering information on the compatible cable required with the RCA output jack on the controller.
