Avon Protection announces NFPA certification for its argus range of thermal imaging cameras

The argus range includes the Mi-TIC E, Mi-TIC E L, Mi-TIC 320 and Mi-TIC S models. Once again, Avon Protection offers the largest, most diverse, lightweight range of NFPA-compliant thermal imaging cameras.

The 2021 edition of NFPA 1801 is the latest edition of the standard. First published in 2013 and again in 2018, the standard defines minimum performance requirements for sophisticated thermal imaging equipment and is adopted throughout the world. While there are no physical changes to the Mi-TIC cameras as a result of the latest edition, the most notable changes are specific to testing requirements and software. Those include spot temperature measurement moving from “TI BASIC” to “TI BASIC PLUS”, updated test matrices for both stand-alone and integrated thermal imagers, an amended spacial resolution source target used for testing, and a revised region of interest figure used for testing.

The NFPA 1801:2021 certification still includes the IGNIS Engine technology in all Mi-TIC models that was originally introduced in the 2018 edition. The IGNIS Engine, along with its sensor and lens improvements, provides unrivalled scene detail, enabling firefighters to see more of the important background details such as exit points, obstacles, and casualties, even in the presence of a fully developed fire.

Commenting on the approvals, Darren Wolfe, Global Product Manager for Thermal Imaging, said, “We are very excited to continue building on to our over 40-year legacy of designing and manufacturing state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras that allow firefighters to operate safely in the most demanding and dangerous of environments.”

The combination of NFPA certification along with the IGNIS Engine maintains Avon Protection’s position as a leading supplier of NFPA 1801 certified thermal imagers in the world.
