Fluke Process Instruments’ ThermoView TV40 line of thermal imagers with integrated visible-light cameras enable 24/7 temperature monitoring in a -10°C to 1200°C range. Developed to meet industrial automation requirements, they support GigE streaming of images, automatic alarms, analysis and archiving. Images from multiple devices can be combined for display and analysis.
Various field-interchangeable lens options are available, including wide-angle lenses. The imagers can be used to monitor applications such as press hardening, brake testing, lime kiln shells, metal spin forming, waste incinerators, and boilers. They capture images at 9 or 60 frames/sec. Currently, the series comprises two models with a 320 x 240 pixel or 640 x 480 pixel resolution, with more models to follow.
The cameras can be configured and controlled via the internet. They feature a remote motorized focus. Thermal and visible-light images can be overlayed for easy camera alignment. Users can set independent emissivity values and alarm conditions for various areas of interest. Featuring a built-in lens, the standard ThermoView TV40 thermal imagers have no external moving parts. Housed in an IP67-rated aluminum casing, they tolerate ambient temperatures up to 50 °C without and up to 200 °C with an additional cooling enclosure.
