Thermography Systems for Early Fire Detection

IRMonitor is a flexible solution concept for early fire detection and temperature monitoring of industrial plants by means of thermography. Infrared cameras detect objects through their thermal radiation and are able to perceive certain characteristics regarding the condition of these objects, which conventional cameras cannot pick up. IRMonitor is thereby able to detect potentially hazardous situations based on critical temperature developments and to initiate security measures.

An IRMonitor system can be set up with a large number of infrared cameras so that even large areas with many different angles can
be fully monitored. Automated self-checking image evaluation
ensures that hazardous situations can be detected around the

Configuration model 1: IRMonitor-RPU (Remote Process Unit)

An IRMonitor-RPU system comes with a robust control cabinet that includes an embedded PC with additional peripherals for self-contained control of monitoring cycles with up to 4 infrared cameras. Customers have the option of monitoring the userinterface via a remote operator console..

Configuration model 2: IRMonitor-CCU (Central Computing Unit)

This system concept is based on a powerful processing unit that enables the use of a multitude of sensor units (IR and vision cameras). With the aid of CTUs (Camera Terminal Units), the cameras and their peripherals (e.g. pan/tilt heads) can be integrated into system solutions, even across considerable distances. Furthermore, the CCU concept offers a central interface and user console for the parameterization and visualization of the monitoring system.

Configuration model 3: IRMonitor-CS (Client-Server)

IRMonitorCS manages a network of smart cameras, which independently monitor the area assigned to them. The alerting and control are either performed directly by the relevant camera interface or by a central camera manager. This concept is particularly suitable for applications that need a large number of cameras.
