AT – Automation Technology presents its globally unique new smart infrared cameras of the IRSX series. With these cameras, intelligent, self-contained thermal imaging systems that are consistently designed for industrial use are available for the first time. The web-based configuration interface and result display make the setup for thermal monitoring tasks child’s play. After installation, the IRSX cameras communicate directly with the process control and provide an outstanding functionality for the practical implementation of Industry 4.0.
Designed as an all-in-one solution, the IRSX cameras combine a calibrated thermal imaging sensor with a powerful data processing unit and a variety of industrial interfaces in a small, rugged IP67 housing. A computer, special thermal imaging software, or external interfaces are no longer required. This considerably reduces system complexity, installation effort, and costs while significantly improving system stability. For communication with external automation and control equipment, the cameras feature a multitude of protocols, including GigE Vision, Modbus TCP, HTTPS, and FTP.
A comprehensive range of software tools supports the integration and use of the cameras. In addition to standard APIs such as REST, GigE Vision, MQTT, and OPC-UA, this also includes a constantly growing number of application-specific apps.
The IRSX series comprises a variety of models with different fields of view, resolutions, and frame rates and covers a broad spectrum of applications in all areas of industrial process automation. Wherever temperature has a decisive influence in the manufacture and processing of products, the IRSX cameras provide a highly flexible solution for autonomous thermal monitoring. A further application focus is the preventive early fire detection and plant condition monitoring. Once set up, the intelligent cameras automatically detect temperature anomalies and trigger an alarm long before a fire breaks out or a system fails.
