Thermal imaging cameras for automation applications

Paul Boughton

Thermal imaging cameras can be used for a wide variety of applications, thanks to their ability to measure temperatures.
Production engineers and technicians are faced by the demand for higher production output at a constant quality and at lower cost. The FLIR A-series thermal imaging cameras are an effective tool for Machine Vision, Closed loop Process control and Quality Assurance imaging, helping to validate and increase product quality and throughput and thereby give products a competitive edge and increased profitability.
For machine vision application, fixed mounted thermal imaging cameras like FLIR A615/A315 can be installed almost anywhere to monitor the production process by detecting and measuring temperature differences and visualize heat patterns.
FLIR A615 provides over 300,000 pixels of accurate temperature measurement data. The world’s first 640 × 480 uncooled thermal imaging camera to be fully-compliant with both GenICam and GigE Vision protocols, the FLIR A615 is ready for installation into cutting-edge networks right out of the box, and plug-and-play with software from machine vision providers National Instruments, Cognex, Matrox, MVTec, Stemmer Imaging, and many more.
This combination makes the FLIR A615 an effective tool available for thermal imaging machine vision, closed-loop process control, and quality assurance imaging, helping to validate and increase product quality and throughput, improving processes and products while giving a competitive edge and increased profitability.
Users that do not need this extremely high image quality of the FLIR A615, can choose for the FLIR A315. Just like the FLIR A615 this camera is equipped with an uncooled microbolometer detector but it produces images of 320 x 240 pixels.
