The M5 PTZ Thermal Imager is the latest in rugged and affordable pan tilt multi sensor imaging systems.  The M5 PTZ incorporates a high resolution advanced thermal sensor and a long range zoom CCTV camera in one low profile package.  The M5 Thermal Imager is as easy to install and configure as it is powerful.  The system utilizes all internal wiring and electronics which means that there are no external interface boxes to mount and no external wires which can become failure points.  Basic configuration only requires power, serial and video connections directly to the supplied main cable.  Pre loaded common CCTV camera protocols allow the M5 to be integrated into any new or existing security installation.  Advanced (optional) configurations allow the M5 Thermal Imager PTZ to satisfy almost any requirement.  Options include: wireless video / control, IP network compatible thermal system, CAT-5 connections, slew to cue configurations, DVR control and monitoring, video analytics and more.  The M5 can also be custom configured to your unique application.

Features and What's Included

The M5 Mid Range Thermal Imager (MRTI) PTZ

The M5® PTZ thermal imager breaks new ground in affordable high performance pan tilt thermal imaging solutions. Ideally suited to a wide range of applications including; perimeter security, force protection, border patrol, nuclear facility security, law enforcement and any application that calls for a combined thermal infrared camera visual CCTV sensor suite on a remote operated pan tilt base.

Intelligent Thermal Camera Design Features

Lets take an in depth look at what the M5® PTZ has to offer.

The M5® uses a simplified military style connector with a reduced pin set to maximize reliability. Older systems used massive connectors with very dense pin populations sometimes as many as 20-30 pins in a single connector. This translated to huge main system cables often in excess of 1" in diameter. The old technology made installing the main system cable very difficult due to its size and rigidity. These gigantic densely packed cables were very expensive and by packing so many wires into a tight design they were prone to failure. The M5® uses a single twist on type connector with only 8 pins. There is NO interface box or external electronics of any kind which greatly reduces installation time, failure points and most importantly cost. The lightweight and small size of the M5® system cable makes it easier to install in even the most cramped conduits.

You might think that an imager at this price point might sacrifice features in favor of low cost. This is not the case with the M5®. The PTZ is fully gasket sealed and has removable sun shield to protect the system in almost any weather condition. On top of the necessities like a weatherized housing, the M5® sports the hottest upgrades like an integrated remote wiper. Most high end thermal camera PTZ systems consider the wiper an extra cost optional item. We have never bought a car with optional windshield wipers! The better cars even come with wipers for the headlights.


The heart and soul of the M5® is its advanced thermal imaging system coupled with a crystal clear coated thermal optic train that produces a crisp thermal video of your surroundings 24/7 and in any lighting condition. The real advantage of the system lies in its ability to show you what cant be seen with the naked eye. Thermal imagers are a true passive technology that images the infrared energy that is emitted from every object in the universe. This is very different from cheap infrared light cameras (aka "parking lot cameras") that shine an invisible light a few feet away and then image the light that bounces back. The M5® senses the long wavelength infrared energy that is always emitted from everything around you. A finely tuned optical train focuses this energy onto the M5® thermal sensor chip which provides you with a thermal video image of your surroundings. This is true "see in the dark technology" with NO LIGHT shinning out of the system to give away the position of the cameras. The M5® thermal chip doesnt even "see" light so it cant be fooled or blinded by light sources (even daylight). 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the M5® multi-sensor thermal technology will see everything.
