Thermal imaging device selection recommendations
Aug 14, 2018

Research companies including electronics, circuits, chips, materials, machinery, medical, etc. recommend the selection of third-generation thermal imaging cameras, such as three-in-one thermal imaging cameras. Because of its simple operation and full-radiation video streaming function, it can monitor the dynamic changes of temperature and even detect the aging process for a long time with the temperature/time trend analysis of PC software. If you need to see tiny objects such as chips, you can choose to match the macro lens.

Equipment maintenance or building inspection users such as power distribution cabinets and pipelines can use the first generation thermal imager for simple inspection and inspection. If you need to do professional preventive maintenance, it is recommended to use the third-generation thermal imaging camera, choose the QR image scanning function, and can use the external power supply for a long time and have online function or video recording to monitor the equipment working conditions. The PC software has a temperature/time trend analysis function. For example, if a group customer needs to use more than one lot and wants to improve management capabilities, the third-generation thermal imager is preferred, and its cloud storage function is used to facilitate the management and mining of group equipment inspection data.

Substation equipment, key equipment monitoring or production line product quality monitoring can consider the second generation thermal imager or the fourth generation thermal imager, with the characteristics of network transmission and networking, it is recommended to use the product with automatic network reconnection function. If you need to connect to the PTZ, please select the product with the PELCO-D protocol. PC software with alarms, presets, auto cruise and trend analysis is also recommended.

Users of fire protection applications such as coal yards, oil depots, factories, forests, etc. can use second-generation thermal imaging cameras or fourth-generation thermal imaging cameras, but choose products with front-end data processing, front-end alarms, etc., because fire protection requires systems. Architecture temperature, back-end computer alarms such as network problems or server failures can cause the entire system to crash. It is recommended to select the software with the first fire alarm function on the basis of the previous one to facilitate the analysis of the fire cause and spread later. If you need remote monitoring, you can also select products with disconnection reconnection, PELCO-D protocol, ONVIF protocol. The cost of using the fourth-generation thermal imaging camera will be much lower, making it easy to deploy quickly.

If it is used for security use in ports, airports, etc., it is recommended to use a second-generation thermal imager or a fourth-generation thermal imager, but it also needs to have functions such as disconnection reconnection, PELCO-D protocol and ONVIF protocol, which is easy to use and maintain. The fourth generation of thermal imaging cameras applies thermal imaging technology in the future.
