Fluke Process Instruments presents new line of thermal imagers
The fixed-installation imagers enable 24/7 temperature monitoring in a -10 to 1200 °C range. Developed to meet today’s demanding industrial automation requirements, they support GigE streaming of images, automatic alarms, analysis and archiving. Images from multiple devices can be combined for display and analysis. Various field-interchangeable lens options are available, including wide-angle lenses.
The imagers can be used to monitor applications such as press hardening, brake testing, lime kiln shells, metal spin forming, waste incinerators, and boilers. They capture images at 9 or 60 frames/sec. Currently, the series comprises two models with a 320 x 240 pixel or 640 x 480 pixel resolution, with more models to follow.
The cameras can be configured and controlled via the internet. They feature a remote motorized focus. Thermal and visible-light images can be overlayed for easy camera alignment. Users can set independent emissivity values and alarm conditions for various areas of interest. Featuring a built-in lens, the standard TV40 thermal imagers have no external moving parts. Housed in an IP67-rated aluminum casing, they tolerate ambient temperatures up to 50 °C without and up to 200 °C with an additional cooling enclosure.
