One fire prevention thermal camera for all of your needs
Temperature measurement is the second most common measurement in industry today. Workswell SAFETIS fire prevention thermal cameras are already enabling contact-free temperature measurement in hundreds of different applications around the world.

The high level of IP67 coverage and MECHANICAL DURABILITY
Ensure sufficient resistance of the thermal camera, which also includes within demanding outdoor conditions. The thermal camera is fully radiometric with a resolution of 336 x 256 pixels or 640 x 512 pixels and with an image frequency of 9 Hz, 30 Hz or 60 Hz.
SAFETIS Outdoor as a fully radiometric thermal camera, enables, in addition to the automatic detection of the risk of the occurrence or the presence of the fire, also with high sensitivity to evaluate a change of the surface temperature (sensitivity is better than 50 mK).
Information about the surface temperature is important for the evaluation of the risk of flare-up as temperature trends are the main information used to evaluate the risk of the occurrence of fire. Due to the high-temperature sensitivity, the system can record the minimum changes in the temperature. The system’s intelligence is, according to the setting of the operator and the adaptation of the system, able to prevent most false alarms.
Built in web server
Each SAFETIS thermal camera can be communicated with through a built-in web-server. This server provides a basic image stream as well as options for advanced configuration and setting all necessary parameters.
The multi-camera system can be connected through the SAFETIS Control Unit. This unit enables to interconnect up to 16 SAFETIS thermal cameras with any construction. Cameras can be configured from this central unit, as well as to show alarms, etc. More information about the central unit can be found on the separate product page SAFETIS Control Unit.
The following thermal cameras are included in the SAFETIS early fire detection system:
- SAFETIS Outdoor, i.e. exterior version IP 67
- SAFETIS Indoor, i.e. camera for interior purposes
- SAFETIS Outdoor Pan-Tilt, i.e. version with high level of IP 67 coverage and PTZ positioning system.
In addition, the offer includes a further two special thermal cameras. One of these is SAFETIS Stainless Steel. The protection cover of this camera is designed to provide resistance under external conditions in special fields of industry where there are highly corrosive influences or the occurrence of aluminium is prohibited. This camera is adapted for demanding outdoor use with a high level of coverage.
The second special fire detection thermal camera is SAFETIS EX-proof – a specially modified cover enables to install the camera in an environment with the risk of explosion where it is necessary to comply with strict standards. This camera has ATEX certification.
To be able to adapt the thermal camera for the stated application, the offer includes four lens with field of view 69°x56°, 45°x37° a 32°x26° for 640 x 512 px and 45°x35°, 35°x27°, 25°x19° a 17°x13° for 336 x 256 px. Depending on the lens used, it is possible to monitor, for example, distant objects or, on the contrary, the surface of a nearby object with a wider area (for example, warehouse, surface of a conveyor or weighing pit, etc.).
The size of the recorded area, depending on the distance and the type of lens used, can be verified by the FOV calculator.
Digital Outputs and temperature range
Upon an alarm, the SAFETIS thermal fire detection camera informs the master system through one of seven digital outputs (type of open collector). Individual outputs can be assigned to various events, areas and types of alarms.
SAFETIS thermal cameras come with two temperature ranges, i.e. -25 °C to 150 °C (-13 °F to 302 °F), or -40 °C to +550 °C (-40 °F to +1022 °F), with an external filter then +50 °C to 1,000 °C (+122 °F to 1832 °F) or +400 °C to 1,500 °C (+752 °F to 2732 °F).
Some of the typical applications of the SAFETIS infrared fire detection system are used to monitor the following areas:
- Industrial warehouses
- Ammunition warehouses
- Coal warehouses and conveyors
- Power plants and electric energy distribution systems
- Agricultural warehouses, food warehouses
- ATEX environment
- Depots and incineration plants, warehouses for hazardous waste
- Conveyor belts
- Chemical and industrial plants
- Cement plants
- Monitoring of perimeters
An SDK for integrating thermal camera into your devices is available. SAFETIS Ethernet SDK is a set of commands, intended to control the SAFETIS camera over the Ethernet connection without the need of a web browser. These commands are compatible with all models of the SAFETIS cameraunless stated otherwise.
The SAFETIS runs a TCP/IP server for the control. The opened server is similar to telnet protocol and can be usedwith telnet terminal software.
The principle of fast detection of fire by SAFETIS thermal cameras
The principle of the function of the fast detection of fire or the risk of flare-up by SAFETIS fire detection thermal cameras is based on the continuous measurement of heating and temperature changes in the recorded scene. Temperature trends are consequently evaluated and using specific algorithms, the potential risk of flare-up is stated while false alarms are eliminated within the necessary extent. The SAFETIS system is able to react much earlier than all other systems that indicate the symptoms of an already originated fire.
Flames and smoke have not started yet. There is only the risk of gradual warming. Despite the fact that the smoke detectors do not respond, the SAFETIS system records small changes in heating and can react early.
Smoke detectors respond in this phase, i.e. at the time when the smoke is generated. However, this is a risky phase where the rapid escalation of a destructive fire can occur. The SAFETIS system would have reacted a long time ago to the origination of this event.
In this phase, flames are visible and smoke is generated. Special CCTV cameras and the smoke detectors respond to this. Usually, this is too late and the loss of property or life frequently occurs.
