Bullard Introduces Two New Thermal Imaging Accessories
Mobile Command Center and TacPole Offer Firefighters and Law Enforcement Officers the Edge in Safety
AUGUST 14, 2009 – CYNTHIANA, KY – Bullard, the leading manufacturer of thermal imagers, introduces two new thermal imaging products that provide firefighters and law enforcement officers with an added advantage when responding to an emergency. The digital Mobile Command Center and TacPole are product accessories for firefighters and officers using Bullard Thermal Imagers.
Designed with safety in mind, the improved digital Mobile Command Center records video transmitted from a Bullard Thermal Imager and encourages team viewing with its large 15.4-inch monitor and two-channel receiving capability. This all-in-one unit gives commanders the ability to view an incident from a command station by receiving, displaying and playing back video transmitted from a thermal imager.
Built with the same rugged quality as the Bullard Thermal Imagers, the Mobile Command Center is enclosed in a briefcase-style design for easy maneuverability and operation. It is triple powered so it can run off a 110/240v wall, 12v vehicle, or from an internal battery for more than three hours. Other features include recording directly to the unit’s SD memory card, a dry-erase board for easy note-taking, and the added benefit of recording and displaying video for documentation, evidence or training purposes.
When law enforcement officers respond to an emergency call, they need to quickly and carefully survey the scene to determine the threat level. The TacPole lets officers observe areas that are not easily viewable. By attaching a Bullard Thermal Imager to the TacPole, officers now have the capability to see around rooms, hallways, corners, vehicles or into attics or basements.
Firefighters also benefit from the TacPole. By attaching a Bullard Thermal Imager to the TacPole, firefighters can see over walls, attics, suspended ceilings or into basements or collapsed buildings. The TacPole features a remote screen display designed to rotate and slide so it stays viewable. The remote display also detaches from the pole for viewing by other firefighters or officers.
Other features include a quick-attach design for easy transitioning of the thermal imager from the pole to a handheld operation and electrically isolate hand grips that prevent electrocution. The TacPole can also be equipped with an optional integrated transmitter that works with the Bullard MobileLink or Mobile Command Center wireless receivers. The TacPole can be extended into three sections, reaching more than six feet in length and retracting to 30-inches when fully stowed.
