MOBOTIX DualFlex S16


The compact DualFlex is a universally deployable, easy concealable video system with a highly detailed resolution of up to 2 x 6 megapixels. The fully weatherproof IP camera has two miniature sensor modules, which are each connected to the camera housing with a sensor cable. Thanks to the hemispheric dual lens, two separate rooms can be secured simultaneously without any blind spots.

DualFlex S16 Rollover to zoom [+]

The World’s First Flexible Dual Thermal Camera

The new thermal sensor modules measure the thermal radiation of objects, so that they can function in absolute darkness. Together with the new MxActivitySensor, they can reliably detect motion in images at night. Only changes in position trigger a signal. Objects moving on the spot do not trigger a signal. The thermal sensor modules also have an advantage during the day since they can detect moving objects in shadows, semi-darkness, smoke, or behind bushes.

  • The thermal sensor modules are also designed for connection in the weatherproof aluminum housing on the S15D camera, for example, for customer-specific special installations. Here, it is possible to connect two thermal sensor modules to a camera in a very flexible way using two-metre cables for each module. MOBOTIX thermal cameras are designed for around-the-clock operation in industrial conditions. Just like for the M15D-Thermal, there are different focal lengths available: L43 (wide-angle 45°), L65 (tele 25°) and L135 (tele 17°).

Highly sensitive thermal sensor with NETD typically 50 mK (visualizes temperature differences starting at 0.05 °C/0.09 °F) Unlike cameras with 5 MP image sensors, one of the decisive quality criteria for a thermal camera is not the image resolution, measured in pixels, but rather the camera’s ability to capture the slightest differences in temperature and to produce an image that displays these differences in colors. The sensitivity of a thermal sensor is measured in millikelvin by the NETD, or Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference. MOBOTIX thermal cameras offer a sensor value of 50 mK, which places them in the top range of cameras currently available for general use.

Dual Thermal Camera With Extremely Low Energy Consumption Without extra cooling, heating, or PTZ motors, the S15D, even with two thermal sensor modules, requires only about 8 watts of power and can therefore be powered cost-efficiently by just one PoE cable in outdoor temperatures from -30 °C to 60 °C/-20 °F to +140 °F

The following thermal sensor module combinations are possible with the S15D:

  • Mixed operation (1 x thermal sensor module, 1 x 5 MP sensor module): The advantages of an S15D with a thermal sensor module and simultaneous daylight sensor lie in the combination of both images: brilliant 5-megapixel images during the day and in twilight hours and reliable motion detection at night.
  • Dual thermal operation (2 x thermal sensor module – only possible with the S15D, not with the M15D-Thermal): Two thermal images of two different image areas with just one camera
  • Single thermal operation (1 x thermal sensor module): One thermal image, thermal sensor module with flexible mounting A New Benchmark For Security Cameras: MOBOTIX 6MP Moonlight Sensor Technology (3072 × 2048 Pixels)
  • One important feature that determines the quality of a security camera is its light sensitivity. A highly light-sensitive camera supports short exposure times, thus resulting in reduced motion blurring. This makes it easier to evaluate security-relevant footage, making details visible without the need for additional, expensive illumination.

In addition to MxLEO software for image improvement in very low lighting conditions, the current MOBOTIX models have a hardware-based noise filter directly at the image sensor. It reduces image noise and delivers sharper images. Depending on the specific requirements, it is possible to select whether the automatic exposure function extends the calculated exposure time, for example, in order to create high-contrast night recordings for web images, or shortens the exposure time in order to display fast movements in crystal clear quality.

The new MOBOTIX 6-megapixel image sensors (available as a day and night version for color and black/white images) feature even better light sensitivity, making these the best MOBOTIX cameras and IP systems ever. In addition to standard 4:3 image formats with maximized 5MP resolution, this new technology now also supports images with up to 6 megapixels in the special 3:2 format (3072 × 2048 pixels), both as a day and night sensor module. In dual image display mode, a MOBOTIX 6MP dual camera can generate images up to 12 megapixels in size.

Thanks to the fact that a 6-megapixel night sensor module MOBOTIX camera is now able to deliver high-quality images on full moon nights (illumination of approx. 0.25 lux) without any additional lighting, this new moonlight technology is suitable for applications with illumination levels below 5 lux (in comparison, street lighting seldom drops below 10 lux). For scenarios with normal lighting conditions, such as illuminated indoor and outdoor areas, the available 5-megapixel camera models are sufficient.

The greatly increased light sensitivity of the new sensor technology is further enhanced by the HD Premium lenses also built into the 5-megapixel cameras. These new HD Premium lenses with an f/1.8 aperture are offered in six different focal lengths. This technology, in connection with the new 6-megapixel sensor modules (1/1.8” CMOS), delivers horizontal image angles between 15° and 105° for an image format of 4:3.

MOBOTIX 6MP Moonlight Sensor Technology – Highlights

The most light-sensitive MOBOTIX sensor lens technology ever Very low illumination requirements for day sensor module: 0.1 lux at 1/60 s, 0.005 lux at 1/1 s Very low illumination requirements for night sensor module: 0.02 lux at 1/60 s, 0.001 lux at 1/1 s Up to 100 times higher light sensitivity compared to previous 1- and 3MP sensor technology Expanded day sensor module range of applications Shorter exposure times mean reduced motion blurring High-quality premium lenses and optimised, balanced image quality with crisp detail right up to the image borders Maximum image size: Now 6 megapixels for each sensor module in special format 3:2 (3072 × 2048 pixels) With the DualFlex, two 6MP sensor modules featuring microphones are connected to a concealed camera housing via cables of up to three metres long for each module (total max. 6 m). Two adjacent rooms can be discreetly monitored with just one camera.


Manual Pan-Tilt Mount With Integrated Thermal Sensor

MOBOTIX offers the high-quality, weatherproof PTMount-Thermal (IP65), an attractive, compact, discreet and dome-shaped mount that is adjustable in three directions and contains a pre-installed MOBOTIX L43, L65 or L135 thermal sensor module. It is always possible to find the right position thanks to the great flexibility available when adjusting the modules. When mounted to a wall, for example, the mount makes it possible to compensate for sideway tilt and to realign the image horizon horizontally to record the best possible image of the area to be secured.

Simple Ceiling Or Wall Installation

The PTMount-Thermal contains an integrated, two-metre sensor cable that simply needs to be connected to the S15 camera housing, making efficient installations and customer-specific special installations very easy. Every previously delivered S15 above camera firmware version can be used with the new PTMount-Thermal, which converts it into a high-end thermographic camera.

Note: Using the appropriate MOBOTIX accessories, you can also use the FlexMount camera in conjunction with the AudioMount as a Hemispheric Door Station (door station function with firmware 4.1.9 and higher).


Unique Motion Detection in the camera

The MxActivitySensor is an activity-controlled, software-based image analysis function for detecting movement of people and objects in a monitored area (full image or section). Unlike existing video motion sensors, which detect all events in the defined motion windows, the MxActivitySensor is very easy to configure and delivers reliable results, even in applications with large amounts of external interference. For example, the camera now distinguishes between movements of vehicles, people or objects that trigger an alarm and movements that are not relevant for alarms, such as shadows, changes in illumination, trees swaying in the wind or rain directly at the lens.

What Is Detected?

The sensor detects objects or people that cross the defined monitored area or move toward or away from the camera. The MxActivitySensor will be available in May free of charge via a simple firmware update for current MOBOTIX cameras (activation in Web browser). Two HiRes 180° Panorama
