MicroPower Technologies Launches New Infrared Camera

San Diego-based security technology developer MicroPower Technologies has rolled out a new product, a new, infrared camera which can wirelessly send its images up to a half mile away. The venture-backed startup--which is backed by Karmel Capital, Motorola and the Tech Coast Angels--said its new Helios IR camera consumes less than 1/10th the power of standard, industry cameras, and is powered by solar energy and a lithium battery. MicroPower says its camera is capable of running continuously for up to five days on a single charge. MicroPower is led by Aaron Tankersley. The company's cameras are aimed at letting companies deploy security cameras without having to deal with all the cabling, power, digging, and other issues typically encountered in installations.
