PYROLINE FireCheck – The early fire detection system for the traffic supervision

Trucks can be a risk for persons and the environment if they catch fire in road tunnels.

Very high damage of persons and objects can be caused by burning vehicles in regions of high security requirements like road tunnels..

Fires of vehicles are often caused by overheated parts (like tires) that can be detected by the PYROLINE FireCheck system before they catch fire. Vehicles with a risk of fire or already burning vehicles can be stopped early enough by such a system to prevent an entering of regions with high security requirements.

Two fast uncooled infrared line cameras PYROLINE per traffic line are scanning the running traffic to measure the temperature distribution of the vehicles.

The image processing software determines dangerous overheating of tires and cargo load, triggers alert if thresholds are exceeded and identifies the vehicle by a video image.

Traffic supervision and information systems can stop affected vehicles in good time for a manual inspection.

The infrared camera PYROLINE monitors incoming vehicles on limits exceeded  concerning their temperarture. In this way vehicles can be witchdrawn from circulation just in time.
