FLIR RSX-F Combines FLIR Lepton Thermal Sensor and Visual Imaging for Improved Fire Detection and Passenger Safety
FLIR Systems announced the FLIR RSX-F intelligent sensor for advanced fire detection inside rail coaches. The FLIR RSX-F uses the FLIR Lepton® thermal sensor and high-definition visual imaging for fire and occupancy detection as well as CCTV monitoring.
The FLIR RSX-F utilizes a thermal sensor with onboard fire detection algorithms to detect a fire faster and more accurately than conventional methods. The FLIR RSX-F detects thermal energy emitted from objects within its field of view and sees through the smoke. The dynamic video detection algorithms also determine the size, rate of temperature increase, and movement of a hot spot. This approach allows for lower false alarms by distinguishing hazardous events like cigarettes or lighters.
The FLIR RSX-F also measures seat occupancy in a passenger train, which allows train operators to optimise passenger flow or improve passenger comfort by sensing temperature and adjusting train-based HVAC systems. The FLIR RSX-F mounts easily to walls or ceilings and tilts up to 45 degrees for optimal viewing. The FLIR RSX-F sensor is also fully compliant with the EN 50155 standard covering electronic equipment used for railway applications.
