FLIR launch Thermal Smart Sensor solution
Initial shipments of new FLIR A400/A700 Thermal Sensor solution prioritized for skin temperature screening
FLIR Systems Inc have launched the FLIR A400/A700 Thermal Smart Sensor and Thermal Image Streaming fixed camera solutions for monitoring equipment, production lines, critical infrastructure, and screening for elevated skin temperatures.
The highly configurable smart camera systems are designed to provide accurate, non-contact temperature monitoring across a wide range of disciplines: manufacturing process control, product development, emissions monitoring, waste management, facilities maintenance, and environmental, health and safety (EHS).
Initially, the FLIR A400/A700 Thermal Smart Sensor solution will be prioritized for those responding to COVID-19, but for all applications, the series offers multi-image streaming, edge computing, and Wi-Fi connectivity to help speed data flow and allow faster decisions, improving productivity and safety for professionals.
FLIR designed the A400/A700 cameras with two configurations to better meet application-specific needs. The Thermal Smart Sensor configuration, recommended for measuring elevated skin temperatures, incorporates advanced measurement tools and alarms with edge computing to enable faster critical decisions.
The Image Streaming configuration provides multiple thermal streaming capabilities to help optimize process control, improve quality assurance, or identify potential failures that could shut down a production line.
Users design their system by choosing either the Smart Sensor or Imaging Streaming configuration, selecting either the A400 or A700 camera body based on the resolution they need, and then adding lenses and a range of optional features to fit their application.
‘For more than 40 years, FLIR thermal imaging has provided technologies for professionals to improve not only their capabilities, but also their safety on the job,’ said Jim Cannon, president and chief executive officer of FLIR.
‘As the world works together to face the global COVID-19 pandemic, given the need for this technology, FLIR will prioritize initial deliveries of this new A-series camera to professionals using it in elevated skin temperature screening as an adjunct to other elevated body temperature screening tools, to help to fight the spread of the virus.’
