Published:  03 April, 2014

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service is the latest UK Brigade to opt for the ISG X-Series thermal imaging camera.

The decision to switch over ISG’s imaging technology was made by Suffolk following a rigorous trial process. The X-Series was selected by the brigade based on its performance during these tests which took place in the first part 2014.

ISG and sales partner Vimpex attribute the successful outcome to not only camera performance, but to the level of customer support and 48-hour service turnaround they offer.

‘We would like to thank Suffolk Fire and Rescue service for choosing our British made X-380 thermal camera,’ said ISG Sales Director Andy Slater. ‘Performance Enhancing Imaging Technology like our Hot and Cold Spot tracking, provide firefighters a level of situational awareness unmatched by any other camera available, this recent trail and subsequent order further demonstrates that brigades thoroughly testing cameras on their ability to perform are selecting ISG.’

Northumberland, Wiltshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Tyne & Wear and Bedfordshire are just some of the brigades that have made the decision to purchase the ISG X-380, which is stocked and supplied in the UK by Vimpex Ltd.
