MSA Evolution® 6000 Thermal Imaging Cameras

MSA introduced one of the first firefighting thermal imaging cameras over a decade ago. In the years following, we’ve refined TIC design through innovation and expertise, delivering several successful generations of market-leading TICs. We continue this commitment to the fire service by releasing the Evolution 6000 TIC, a new NFPA-compliant platform to make TIC use easier, faster, lighter, and more intuitive.

The Evolution 6000 TIC offers many of the same benefits that firefighters have come to expect from MSA, as well as new ones to take user experience to another level. The new Evolution 6000 TIC platform comprises three new models to offer the best mix of features, including NFPA 1801 compliance, to support the thermal imaging needs of all first responders.

New and enhanced features include best-in-class image quality, light weight, laser pointer and range finder, compass, integrated video and picture capture and integrated wireless video transmission system. All Evolution 6000 TIC models are built with high resolution 320x240 imaging cores. All cameras employ NFPA Basic startup mode to eliminate confusion when firefighters from different departments share tools.
