The P-Type thermal imaging camera is specially designed to help police, security and law enforcement officers detect the heat signatures of people and objects.

The P-Type thermal imaging camera is specially designed to help police, security and law enforcement officers detect the heat signatures of people and objects.

The P-Type is a robust, self-contained, and simple to-operate thermal imaging camera with interchangeable lenses allowing the camera to be used effectively for differing operational distances. It is lightweight and ergonomic, capable of withstanding harsh environments and contains many of the most advanced features available for any thermal imaging camera.

The P-Type is available with a 320 x 240 pixel Amorphous Silicon (ASi) Microbolometer Detector. The camera has been designed using advanced digital imaging technology and techniques for superior performance and application specific functionality.
