Second Sight® – Standoff real time gas detector - Bertin Instruments


    Developed in the 2000’s and designed for the surveillance of critical industrial or public sites, Second Sight® enables the remote detection of a chemical threat, the real-time visualization of a gas cloud and the triggering of appropriate safety measures. Its infrared process offers a wide and continuous field of vision (day & night). Second Sight® meets the needs of the army or civil protection units in charge of threat detection (CBRN teams on the field) such as the Asian CBRN Forces.

    Initially developed for Defense and Civil security applications, Second Sight® has been adapted to IECEx hazardous area and Saudi Aramco refinery standards.
    It provides, in real time, a complete scene visualization. In case of an alarm activation, it localizes the leakage source and the direction of the explosive gas cloud in the vicinity.
    To enhance the safety level on-site, Bertin provides a turnkey solution that detects and monitors explosive gas clouds.
