Dräger UCF® 7000 Intrinsically Safe Thermal Imaging Camera

A professional level device aimed at emergency, search and rescue services


Easy to use with one hand only. See more and make better decisions with optimal display options provided by the Dräger UCF® 7000 thermal imaging camera. The camera is intrinsically safe (ATEX zone 1) and offers the maximum level of safety and reliability in potentially explosive atmospheres.


Drager UCF 7000 Overview


Made for professionals

Thermal imaging cameras by Dräger are valuable tools for orientation when fire, smoke, and darkness make navigation difficult. Designed to maintain your orientation to see where you are going as well as for finding persons or hotspots. Whether "indoor fire fighting" or "searching for a person" – various tasks can now be mastered optimally with the help of the new generation of Dräger UCF thermal imaging cameras. The Dräger UCF 7000 provides a clear plus when it comes to safety and reliability, ease of use and decision making assistance for demanding firefighting jobs. The camera is equipped with innovative functions to meet and satisfy today's requirements for professional search and rescue and firefighting personnel. And while the Dräger UCF 7000 is very easy to use, it also delivers excellent image quality. Application-specific displays provide more clarity and facilitate assessment of a situation.

Comfortable one-hand operation

Using the Dräger UCF 7000 means one hand is always free: an invaluable plus and added freedom of movement for the user. The compact design and well-balanced low weight of only 1.4 kg (3 lbs) make the camera easy to operate with just one hand. The "application switch" makes it possible to use the camera safely and to utilize its functionality to the full extent even in highly stressful situations. A very sturdy attachable "crawling plate" permits the user to brace himself or herself on the ground without letting go of the camera. Also offering various carrying options for optimal carrying comfort.

Better overview, more details

The Dräger UCF 7000 delivers excellent images to firefighters even if visibility is less than optimal. A resolution of 160 x 120 pixel as well as a 2x zoom provide a detailed impression of the situation. When the current image is always right in front of your eyes, rooms and the immediate vicinity are searched quickly and safely. The risk of overlooking a detail is especially likely and a problem in difficult situations. Thanks to the "application switch" (application-specific operating modes), the Dräger UCF 7000 makes it possible to optimize the image display of the camera for the specific task at hand. For example, the camera's display can be optimized for finding persons or finding sources of fire.
One of three additional operating modes is quickly selected just by pressing a button:

  • Fire (firefighting)
  • Persons (search and rescue)
  • ThermalScan (searching for hotspots)

This additional selection provides firefighters with better insights in any situation.


Extended functionality

Optimized image processing provides a quicker overview in just seconds. The Dräger UCF 7000 even makes it possible to "see around corners" if the equipment limits the freedom of movement or the field of view. The "snapshot"-function is used to provide a temporary freeze-frame of thermal image, which can then be viewed on the display. This allows personnel to examine and check out even difficult to access areas quickly and safely. The integrated laser pointer significantly simplifies pointing out the position of hazards – such as hotspots – to other team members and clearly defines the path of attack. The Dräger UCF 7000 always offers a high temperature resolution – even in hot situations. This makes it possible to detect cooler objects such as people even in the vicinity of a fire with best possible resolution. Integrated video- and sound recording functions as well as the ability to record single images are part of the Dräger UCF 7000 delivery scope.

Extremely robust

This camera is reliable even in the roughest and toughest environments and with the most demanding applications. Equipped with an almost indestructible housing, the Dräger UCF 7000 is heat-resistant and withstands usage-specific mechanical stresses with ease. Due to their high protection class of IP 67, Dräger UCF 7000 cameras are resistant to typical conditions encountered during an operation such as water and dust. Modern lithium-ion battery technology yields operating times of up to four hours and provides users with the peace of mind needed during long runs.

Ex protection for safety

An explosive atmosphere may be prevalent especially for calls where there is no fire. This means the equipment used must not be a source of ignition. The Dräger UCF 7000 is the tool of choice even in these types of situations. The device is intrinsically safe and approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres including zone 1 according to ATEX.

Standard USB interface

The Dräger UCF 7000 is supplied with USB 2.0 interface by default, which makes it possible to configure the camera (e.g. setting an individual start image) and transfer the thermal image directly to a PC. Recorded images and video sequences used for documentation purposes can also be transferred to a PC.

Delivery Notices (Updated March 29th 2021)

During the current situation surrounding the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, logistics from every company are under immense pressure to deliver goods on time.

Orders requiring calibration 

Whilst we take the greatest care to get all orders dispatched and delivered to you in the stated time frame, orders received PM and requiring
calibration may on occasion miss dispatch that day, according to the complexity of the calibration. Be assured they will ship on the next dispatch

Bank/Public Holidays

Predicted delivery times are based on regular trading days Monday to Friday. Public holidays, bank holidays and weekends are outside the usual scope
of our dispatch and subject to activities/holidays of our carriers and therefore may incur additional days lead time to your order.
