Scott Safety Set To Launch High-Performance Thermal Imaging
New technology to provide advanced features for first responders
Monroe, NC — Scott Safety, a global leader in innovative personal protective equipment and safety devices, today introduced its newest and most versatile compact, high-resolution imaging camera.
Scott Safety’s lightweight, high-resolution Eagle Attack thermal imaging camera is compact and ergonomic with excellent image quality. The Eagle Attack concept was designed based on feedback received from first responders and with the input of hundreds of firefighters. The Eagle Attack concept makes high-quality imaging accessible, efficient and cost effective. The technology simplifies and accelerates the process of getting great quality images and providing full high-definition capability.
“We are extremely excited about the development of this thermal imaging tool,” said Tony Topf, accountability product line manager, Scott Safety. “Efficiency, quality and convenience factors are what make the Eagle Attack imager unique. We’ve designed this innovation around what the customers have said rather than around what we think first responders may need.”
Designed for on-the-job reliability, durability and ease-of-use, the Eagle Attack imager is one of the lightest and most portable imagers in the industry. The product is equipped with an ample display, a high-degree dynamic range and class-leading resolution and high sensitivity for quick and easy fire analysis. The high-function germanium lens is protected by silicone bumpers and is engineered for quick field change-out.
Together with the Eagle Imager 320 and the Eagle Imager 320 with Pak Tracker, the Scott thermal imaging portfolio will now offer solutions for any first responder application.
