Schneider Electric today announced the successful installation of its Pelco™ by Schneider Electric™ Sarix TI™ thermal imaging camera systems at California State University, Fresno’s Bulldog Stadium. Once reserved only for specialized military applications at a premium price, Schneider Electric is now making thermal imaging affordable and available to any business or infrastructure. The installation at Bulldog Stadium is expected to show immediate return on investment by eliminating the need for routine area checks, which saves on the cost of personnel, as well as vehicle fuel, maintenance and nighttime lighting.
Following successful installation of a new artificial playing field in the 41,031-seat football stadium, the Fresno State security team wanted to upgrade its video security system to ensure proper protection of this significant investment. The university selected the Sarix TI Series to provide high-contrast images in any lighting condition with on-board analytics to detect any person or vehicle coming onto the new turf, allowing its security staff to monitor the field remotely and immediately respond to any unauthorized intruders.
