Automated multi-spectral temperature sensor for condition monitoring and hot spot detection

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

FLIR has released the AX8. Claimed to be the most cost-effective and smallest thermal camera on the market, it offers an automated multi-spectral temperature sensor for condition monitoring and hot spot detection.

Combined with its affordability and compact size, the thermal camera can be mounted in a number of diverse applications, including the IoT. The device is suited for use in commercial sectors and applications, including process and manufacturing industries, data centres energy generation and distribution, transportation and mass transit, storage facilities and refrigeration warehouses.

For continuous thermal monitoring of critical installations and facilities, the camera has an integrated intelligent temperature sensor and has built-in analysis features to ensure that the camera can determine the change and act upon it. By combining thermal and visual camera capabilities in a 54 x 25 x 95mm package, the device is said to be easy to install in space-constrained areas, providing continuous temperature monitoring and alarming for uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.

The AX8 also provides: Power over Ethernet; industry-standard interfaces including Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP; multiple video streaming formats including MPEG, MJPEG, and H.264; FLIR’s Lepton micro-thermal camera core; a 640 x 480-pixel built-In digital camera; and an IP67-rated housing.
