After two years of customer research, argus® from e2v, will be pre-launching two new members of the Mi-TIC family at Interschutz 2015 – the EDGE and the STORM.
The argus® team collected feedback from Mi-TIC customers, as well as participated in live burns, in order to understand the most valued attributes of the Mi-TIC and the areas where they can improve the experience for users. This has resulted in hardware and software advancements that will truly leave the Mi-TIC unrivalled, offering exceptional value for money.
The Mi-TIC EDGE is the lightest and most affordable quality thermal imager for fire fighters. Retaining the Mi-TIC’s unique design, it is small and wearable at just 750g (1.7lbs). The low weight makes a huge difference during operations, and the ability to simply clip it to the fire fighter’s BA kit or pocket means it can be out of the way in an instant.
The Mi-TIC STORM is the most advanced thermal imager for fire fighters ever developed. The STORM incorporates a larger 3.5” display for a clearer view of the fire scene, yet still retains its lightweight profile at only 800g (<1.8lbs). The camera includes an integrated laser pointer to aid team communication and combines an industry-best temperature display range to 1100˚C (2000˚F). It also has an unrivalled software feature-set that will provide rich scene detail that can be easily interpreted by the user, even in larger and hotter fire scenarios.
Jon Kemp, Vice-President of Professional Imaging, commented, “The team at argus® wants to ensure that new customers get exceptional value for money with our new Mi-TICs. Therefore, additional features like image and video recording, as well as the new EDGE and STORM software features, will be included at no extra cost. Equally, the team wants to ensure that existing customers don’t miss out, so new software features will be available as a free update. Additionally, customers with existing Mi-TICs will have the opportunity to upgrade to the larger STORM display and laser. These technology advances and cost saving additions truly leave the Mi-TIC unrivalled and offer exceptional value for money.”
The EDGE and the STORM will be on show at Interschutz 2015 – meet the argus® team who will be exhibiting with their strategic partner, Rosenbauer International, in Hall 27 from 8 to 13 June.
