We are pleased to announce the release of the latest upgrade to the FireVu flame detection algorithm available now with the FireVu 500, our premier video fire detector. The FireVu 500 uses intelligent flame and smoke algorithms to analyse the camera image in order to quickly and reliably detect fire.
This latest update has increased both the robustness of the algorithm and the detection range. The detector will react to the presence of even a small fire* in the specified field of view in under 30 seconds. These times apply to the most challenging of environments and in the majority of cases detection is even faster. The FireVu 500 has three pre-defined detection footprints, the largest of which has a range of up to 100m for flame-only detection. There are other offerings with ranges of 50m and 25m which have a wider field of view.
