Thermal imaging and predictive maintenance
This video from Flir Systems explains how using thermal imaging for predictive maintenance can help prevent unwanted and costly plant downtime by identifying components that are about to fail. This allows managers to accurately decide the best time to take corrective action. The production also warns of the dangers of not conducting thermal inspections on a regular basis.

Flir Systems has introduced the Flir Microscopy Stand — a complete solution for the thermal evaluation of very small objects.
County Deer Stalking is using the Scout PS-32 thermal-imaging camera from Flir Systems in its work to control the deer population in countryside locations in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex. The company, which uses culling as its method of deer management, believes that thermal imaging is a useful addition to traditional deer-stalking equipment.
Scout PS-Series handheld night-vision cameras from Flir Systems make it possible for farmers, reserve managers, researchers, gamekeepers and wildlife enthusiasts to watch the nocturnal activity of animals on their TVs. Prices for the cameras start at around £1,300.
Technical note: thermal-imaging cameras — a fast and reliable tool for testing solar panels download
The use of thermal-imaging cameras for solar panel evaluation offers several advantages. Anomalies can clearly be seen on a crisp thermal image and — unlike most other methods — thermal cameras can be used to scan installed solar panels during normal operation. Thermal cameras also allow large areas to be scanned within a short time frame.
This e-book from Flir Systems demonstrates the scope of thermal imaging in automation applications. The company reveals how its A-series camera can work in the most hostile environments with no need for additional lightings.
