An explosive atmosphere may be prevalent especially for calls where there is no fire. This means the equipment used must not be a source of ignition. The UCF 7000 is the tool of choice even in these types of situations. The device is intrinsically safe and approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres including zone 1 according to ATEX.

Extremely Robust

This camera is reliable even in the roughest and toughest environments and with the most demanding applications. Equipped with an almost indestructible housing, the UCF 7000 is heat-resistant and withstands usage-specific mechanical stresses with ease. Due to their high protection class of IP 67, UCF 7000 cameras are resistant to typical conditions encountered during an operation such as water and dust. Modern lithium-ion battery technology yields operating times of up to four hours and provides users with the peace of mind needed during long runs.

Better overview, more details

The Dräger UCF 7000 delivers excellent images to firefighters even if visibility is less than optimal. A resolution of 160 x 120 pixels as well as a 2x zoom provide a detailed impression of the situation. When the current image is always right in front of your eyes, rooms and the immediate vicinity are searched quickly and safely. The risk of overlooking a detail is especially likely and a problem in difficult situations. Thanks to the “application switch” (application-specific operating modes), the UCF 7000 makes it possible to optimize the image display of the camera for the specific task at hand. For example, the camera’s display can be optimized for finding people or finding sources of fire.

Extended Functionality

Optimized image processing provides a quicker overview in just seconds. The Dräger UCF 7000 even makes it possible to “see around corners” if the equipment limits the freedom of movement or the field of view. The “snapshot”-function is used to provide a temporary freeze-frame of thermal image, which can then be viewed on the display. This allows personnel to examine and check out even difficult to access areas quickly and safely.

Video and sound recording

The UCF 7000 offers standard recording of images and videos, with a storage capacity of 120 min and 1000 images. Whether after use or during training situations, those functions offer the possibility for effective deployment documentation or debriefing.

Integrated laser pointer

The integrated laser pointer significantly simplifies identifies the position of hazards, such as hotspots, to other team members and clearly defines the path of attack.

Comfortable One-Hand Operation

Using the Dräger UCF 7000 means one hand is always free: an invaluable plus and added freedom of movement for the user. The compact design and well-balanced low weight of only 1.3 kg make the camera easy to operate with just one hand. The “application switch” (application specific operating modes) makes it possible to use the camera safely and to utilize its functionality to the full extent even in highly stressful situations. A very sturdy attachable “crawling plate” permits the user to brace themselves on the ground without letting go of the camera, with various carrying options for optimal carrying comfort also available.
