FLIR thermal imager enables condition monitoring and fire prevention

FLIR Systems Australia announces the launch of a new range of fixed mount thermal imagers designed for use in industrial environments for condition monitoring and fire prevention.

FLIR’s new AX8 thermal imaging cameras combine thermal and visible cameras along with FLIR’s proprietary MSX technology in a small, affordable package. The compact AX8 is easy to install in space-constrained areas for automated and uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.

Enabled by FLIR’s ground-breaking Lepton micro thermal imaging camera core, the AX8 facilitates early detection of temperature-related issues in electrical and mechanical equipment, safeguarding the installation against unplanned outages, service interruptions, equipment failure, and fire. The AX8 completely eliminates the need for periodic manual scans through continuous condition monitoring and early fire detection.

FLIR AX8 thermal cameras address the condition monitoring and safety needs of diverse environments, including process and manufacturing industries; data centres; energy generation and distribution; transportation and mass transit; storage facilities; refrigeration warehouses; and engine rooms.

Key features of FLIR’s AX8 thermal imagers include 4,800 active temperature points per image, providing streaming temperature data over industry-standard interfaces (Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP) for easy analysis; built-in web interface; full suite of Analysis and Alarm functions to automatically send alerts on detection of elevated temperatures; compact 54 x 25 x 95 mm form factor allowing easy integration into electrical installations or any manufacturing environment; and streaming thermal, visual, and MSX video output in standard MJPEG, MPEG, H.264 formats, adding multipurpose image capabilities.

FLIR AX8 is debuting at the Security Essen tradeshow from September 23rd through September 26th in Essen, Germany and will be available for global order and delivery in the fourth quarter of 2014.
