FLIR Systems Australia announces the release of a new compact range of thermal imaging cameras designed for automation and process control applications.
Employed worldwide across a wide variety of industries to monitor continuous processes, thermal imaging technology can easily collect information on product quality or production efficiency that may be difficult to capture using conventional means such as thermocouples or visible light cameras.
The new FLIR Axx-Series of thermal imaging cameras is ideal for applications that require the benefits of a thermal image but do not need exact temperature measurement.
FLIR Axx-Series thermal imaging cameras feature a compact design that allows easy integration in a machine vision environment.
Available in different versions to fit specific application requirements, the FLIR Axx-Series includes the FLIR A65, FLIR A35, FLIR A15 and FLIR A5 models.
The FLIR A65 is ideal for applications that require high image quality as it produces crisp thermal images of 640 x 512 pixels. While FLIR A35 produces thermal images of 320 x 256 pixels, the FLIR A15 produces thermal images of 160 x 128 pixels and the FLIR A5, an extremely affordable model produces thermal images of 80 x 64 pixels.
Key features of FLIR Axx-Series thermal imaging cameras:
- Visualises temperatures between -40°C and +550°C
- Temperature differences as small as 50 mK clearly visible on the thermal image
- Power over Ethernet capability delivers communication and power with only one cable
- GigE Vision compatibility provided as standard
- Supports GenIcam, a generic programming interface for all types of cameras
- Allows one camera to be configured as master and others to be slave(s) for applications that require multiple cameras
- Works seamlessly with FLIR Tools software that enables thermal images to be viewed and analysed
- Optional FLIR Tools+ software for users requiring more functionality including recording capability
