MSA introduced one of the first firefighting thermal imaging cameras over a decade ago. In the years following, we’ve refined TIC design through innovation and expertise, delivering several successful generations of market-leading TICs. Our state-of-the-art cameras help you in various situations, such as fast and safe navigation in smoke filled rooms.
As our EVOLUTION® 5000 TIC series could not easily be upgraded to fulfill the new American standard NFPA 1801 (Standard on Thermal Imagers for the Fire Service) we decided to develop a new TIC. The EVOLUTION® 6000 TIC platform comprises three models to offer the best mix of features, including NFPA 1801 compliance, to support the thermal imaging needs of all first responders.
NFPA-compliant third-party certification, non-incendive equipment (UL Class 1, Div 2 which equates to ATEX equipment group II [industrial], zone 2, gas group IIB) for additional safety within combustible environments, fireground-tough product design provides waterproof shock resistance, and a Camera Configuration Application customize camera settings to meet customer needs.
EVOLUTION® 6000 Basic TIC provides easy to use performance – a simplified fireground tool. Standard flashlight provides extra visibility for firefighter proximity to enhance safety and situational awareness. Laser pointer pinpoints hot spots and other areas of interest to allow others to take fast, specific action.
EVOLUTION® 6000 Plus TIC adds additional tools to aid and improve fireground safety and decision making. 2x / 4x zoom gets a closer look at areas of interest. Six user-selectable colour palettes provide flexibility to view thermal images. A compass allows for faster rescues and improved situational awareness by displaying letters or icon for directional information. Optional integrated video transmitter enables remote monitoring for improved decision making.
Optional integrated range finder offers more usable information to enable faster, more precise action from a distance of 5 to 30 meters (replaces flashlight option).
