FLIR Infrared Cameras & Thermal Imaging introduces a new range of
thermal imagers designed for condition monitoring and fire prevention in
Designed for simple installation, the new FLIR AX8 fixed-mount thermal
imager combines thermal and visible cameras along with FLIR’s proprietary MSX
technology in a small, affordable package. The compact design makes it easy to
install in space-constrained areas for automated and uninterrupted condition monitoring
of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.
Enabled by FLIR’s ground-breaking Lepton micro thermal imaging camera core,
the AX8 provides early detection of temperature-related issues in electrical and
mechanical equipment, safeguarding against unplanned outages, service
interruptions, equipment failure, and fire. The AX8 thermal imager eliminates
the need for periodic manual scans by enabling continuous condition monitoring
and early fire detection.
Key features of the FLIR AX8 thermal imagers include 4,800 active
temperature points per image providing streaming temperature data over
industry-standard interfaces (Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP) for easy analysis;
built-in web interface; full suite of Analysis and Alarm functions
automatically sending alerts on detection of elevated temperatures; compact 54
x 25 x 95 mm form factor allowing easy integration into electrical
installations or any manufacturing environment; and streaming thermal, visual,
and MSX video output in standard MJPEG, MPEG, H.264 formats, adding
multipurpose image capabilities.
The FLIR AX8 addresses the condition monitoring and safety needs of diverse
environments including process and manufacturing industries; data centres; energy
generation and distribution; transportation and mass transit; storage
facilities; refrigeration warehouses; and engine rooms.
FLIR is debuting the AX8 at the ongoing Security Essen tradeshow from
September 23rd through September 26th in Essen, Germany. The thermal camera
will be available for global order and delivery in the fourth quarter of 2014.
