Video System Adds Thermal Imaging

The vendor’s Video Surveillance System has added an interface to FLIR’s A-Series thermal imaging cameras, so that thermal images can be viewed on standard HMI/SCADA software, such as Wonderware InTouch or GE Fanuc iFix.

Typically, thermal imaging has been a specialized process, requiring stand-alone or handheld systems. This system enables real-time thermal images to be displayed on HMI screens in the control room, integrated with process displays, so operators can see what is happening in a process or on an assembly line. This enhancement expands process monitoring, maintenance and diagnostics because the thermal images allow operators to see product/utility leaks, imperfections and other anomalies. The video engine continuously records images from multiple thermal and standard video cameras onto a local disk for up to 30 days, and sends “video clips” over the plant network to a Video Control Center (VCC) in the plant’s control room. Thermal images can be displayed side by side with video images on the same screen.
