ThermoVision A-Series

Share this on social media:

Flir Systems has launched its ThermoVision A-Series of infrared cameras, which can be quickly integrated into design and production processes.

These are the first ever thermal cameras to be GigEVision and GenICam compatible and to feature a trigger/synchronisation capability. This flexibility also allows the integration of third-party hardware and software. 

The Gigabit Ethernet interface ensures that even over long distances a high speed frame rate is achieved, up to 60Hz of the full 16-bit image.  This is an important factor as many applications call for advanced image analysis and manipulation.

All that is needed to receive high quality, real time radiometric images is to connect the ThermoVision A320G camera to a PC and install the compliance software. The fixed installation camera provides excellent live images with 320 x 240 pixel resolution from a Flir Systems detector.

Two versions are available, the A320G full frame rate and the A320G 9Hz. They have a built-in 25° motorised lens with auto focus with other lenses optionally available.

The compact ThermoVision A320G is ideal for use in both design and production. It keeps a constant infrared eye on the process, alert to any quality issue that may compromise the result or output. It adds a new dimension to machine vision and is ideal for applications involving non-destructive testing. And as a design tool the proven time-saving abilities of infrared is complemented by this model's easy set-up. It ensures quality and cuts time-to-market.

The main beneficiaries of this technology are those already accustomed to automatic monitoring and detection methods, such as machine vision and non-destructive testing. Typical applications in the automotive sector for example will be air conditioning and window-defrost verification, friction control of tyres and checking the efficiency of car seat heating. And in electronics it will be used for PCB testing and verification, fault tracing in board assemblies and in power electronics design.

In common with all Flir Systems’ cameras the A-Series comes with the necessary software to get started. IP Configuration Utility and IR Monitor allow the production of an image within minutes of camera set-up and connection to the PC. For those requiring a degree of low level programming an A320 control and image interface are included.
