World First: Smart Infrared Cameras for Industry 4.0Automation Technology GmbH14, Bad Oldesloe, Germany
Bad Oldesloe, Germany; September 7, 2018. AT - Automation Technology, the innovator in the field of imaging special sensors, will be presenting its globally unique new smart infrared cameras of the IRSX series at Vision 2018. 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 the system complexity, the installation effort and the costs while significantly improving the system stability. For the 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 addi-tion 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, frame rates and resolu-tions 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 appli-cation 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.

AT - Automation Technology will be presenting itself at Vision 2018 from November 6 to 8, 2018, in hall 1, stand F54.
