Industrial Video & Control (IVC) announced the availability of its new radiometric thermal camera. This latest generation thermal camera precisely senses temperatures for a wide range of applications including process monitoring, product testing, quality control, equipment monitoring, and worker safety.
The FV-3543-1 thermal video sensor detects temperatures within up to eight user-defined zones. High, low, average, and standard deviation thresholds can be set for each zone. Camera alarms can communicate to a plant's control system via OPC or MODBUS/TCP. Built for industrial applications, this fully radiometric infrared camera is ideal for monitoring temperature changes in electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment, process equipment, engine test cells, and other applications where temperature monitoring is critical.
“IVC’s radiometric camera is a new type of industrial sensor that’s applicable for a variety of temperature monitoring applications,” said Paul Vanslette, CTO at IVC. “Its ability to sense hot spots that can’t be visually detected gives manufacturers an exceptional tool for ensuring the safety of workers and critical equipment in harsh environments.”
Manufactured in the United States, the FV-3543-1 works with IVC’s full line of video management software products. The camera also integrates easily with DCS and SCADA systems. The camera is housed in a rugged enclosure making it suitable for use in harsh industrial environments. A camera mount provides for multi-axis adjustment.
