Flir introduces Thermal Imager for Industrial Automation
Combining thermal and visible cameras along with FLIR's proprietary MSX technology in a small, affordable package, the AX8 fixed-mount thermal imager is easy to install in space-constrained areas for automated and uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment. The AX8 provides early detection of temperature-related issues in electrical and mechanical equipment, guarding against unplanned outages, service interruptions, and equipment failure, The AX8 is the ideal temperature sensor for continuous condition monitoring and fire prevention without the need for periodic manual scans. The AX8 also provides streaming temperature data over industry-standard interfaces (Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP) for easy analysis, has a built-in web interface, and includes a full suite of Analysis and Alarm functions that automatically send alerts when the AX8 detects elevated temperatures.
Measuring only 54 x 25 x 95 mm, the AX8 integrates easily into electrical installations or any manufacturing environment. The AX8's streaming thermal, visual, and MSX video is output in standard MJPEG, MPEG, H.264 formats, adding multipurpose image capabilities.
