With the IRSX series of smart infrared cameras, intelligent, self-contained thermal imaging systems that are consistently designed for industrial use are available for the first time. As an all-in-one solution, the 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. Thanks to the web-based configuration interface, the cameras can be set up for thermal monitoring tasks in no time without programming skills. Once installed, they communicate directly with the process control, providing an outstanding functionality for the practical implementation of Industry 4.0. A comprehensive range of software tools supports integration and use of the cameras, including standard APIs like REST, GigE Vision, MQTT, and OPC-UA as well as a growing number of application-specific apps.
The IRSX series comprises a variety of models with different fields of view, resolutions, and frame rates, thus covering a broad spectrum of applications in all areas of industrial process automation.
