Smart IR thermal imaging cameras

01 April 2019

The Automation Technology IRSX industrial IR range of cameras, available from Stemmer Imaging, are designed to facilitate the use of thermal imaging in Industry 4.0 applications.

The compact, rugged cameras are completely self-contained with embedded data processing and they feature a number of communication protocols for interfacing to external automation and control equipment, from Profinet or Modbus TCP to OPC-UA and MQTT. They also have digital I/Os for control and alarming as well as an encoder interface for part tracking on variable speed lines.

With a choice of sensors, fields of view, frame rates and physical configurations, the camera is suited to use for autonomous thermal monitoring wherever temperature is a critical factor in the manufacture and processing of industrial products. 

A web interface provides access to a range of software tools on the embedded AT Vision World platform. These support the integration and use of the cameras and include sensor communication libraries and standard APIs such as REST, GigE Vision, MQTT and OPC-UA as well as the growing number of application-specific apps. This enables solutions for thermal imaging applications to be created easily and efficiently without the need for a PC or specialised thermal imaging software. 

The cameras are available in three model types to meet a wide variety of applications and installations. The ‘compact’ and ‘universal’ versions are supplied in IP67 full-metal housings and can be installed on the factory floor even in very small spaces without any need for an additional protective enclosure. The compact version is designed for use with wide field of view lenses, while the universal version is compatible with most lenses. An ‘open’ version without housing is also available.
