Zistos Dual Mode Thermal Camera (THC-50D)

The Zistos Dual Mode Thermal Camera (THC-50D) is one of the “hottest” camera heads we have on the market. Thermal imagers let you see the world in a way that is impossible to visualize with the naked eye. It lets you see heat, however, thermal images alone can sometimes be ambiguous. Sometimes it is hard to understand when viewing a thermal image what it is you are actually looking at. Details about the subject and surrounding environment can be confusing and hard to identify.

That’s why we designed the Dual Mode Thermal – it lets you see the image in a way that is familiar, along with the thermal image. It allows the operator to instantly switch between thermal imaging and low-light, standard black & white video by a mere turn of the illumination knob.

The THC-50D camera head has built in covert, IR illumination that is used by the standard video camera for illumination, it is enclosed in a slim 1.9” diameter cylindrical housing, and it is designed to be rugged and weather-resistant.

And of course, the THC-50D camera head is designed to attach to any Zistos pole – of any length – or any cable.  So that it can be inserted into an inaccessible or dangerous area.

In Thermal mode, the WalkAbout display shows a thermal indicator that gives you a temperature scale and reading for what the operator is aiming the cross-hairs at the center of the image and the image can be set to produce different colors at different temperature thresholds.

One major benefit of owning a Zistos Video System is the modularity of every component we manufacture, including the THC-50D.  This means if you already own a Zistos system you can add any component or camera to your kit and it will be fully compatible.

Does your operation involve rail or truck tankers?

Zistos Corporation has been designing remote video inspection systems to safely and efficiently inspect the interior of vats, hoppers and tanks for industry since 2001. We are proud to announce the introduction of our NEW Tanker Inspection Camera System, (Part #: IAD-TIPZ-A6). This system is specifically designed to allow for a safe and thorough inspection of the interior of a rail or truck tanker. Just as important, the system allows the user to record and document the conditions. You can now prove that a proper cleaning was completed and the interior area was clean and devoid of any foreign objects or cross contaminants!

Inspecting a tank car has traditionally presented challenges. It is difficult to thoroughly inspect the interior of a car from outside; and as a confined space, a tank car can be inherently hazardous for inspectors to enter. A Video Inspection System from Zistos meets these challenges by offering safe, visual inspection of all areas of the interior of a tank car without a confined space entry.

The Zistos system consists of a specially designed self-illuminating zoom camera mounted to a pole. The pole telescopes down into the tank area and can be manipulated in any direction to allow for a thorough visual inspection of the tanker interior. Images are viewed and can be recorded on a battery-powered LCD display. Video recordings and still images can be recorded onto an internal memory card or transmitted via WiFi to a Smartphone, tablet or computer on a network. The system is ruggedly designed and easy to operate.

Structural issues, corrosion, mold, foreign objects, residue from wash operations, cross contaminants from previous loads and evidence of vermin can be revealed with our system. It allows an inspector to view all areas of the inside of a tank car without being exposed to the many risks associated with a confined space entry. Plus, the DVR option allows digital records to be kept that document the time, date, and results of inspections. These records can be easily stored and archived offering evidence that the tanker was as it should be following a cleaning process!

All Zistos systems are weatherproof, battery-powered, portable, durable, lightweight, compact, and made in the USA.

If you have any questions or want to schedule a hands-on demonstration of any Zistos system, please contact any member of the Zistos sales team. Give us a call today so that we can show you how using a Zistos video inspection system can help maintain brand integrity, improve quality, improve safety by eliminating dangerous confined space entry operations and help reduce costs.
