EVERETT, Wash., June 18, 2018 – Fluke® Process Instruments today announced the ThermoView® TV40, a high-performance industrial thermal imager designed for the most challenging environmental conditions. Supported by intuitive and powerful analysis software, the new thermal imager provides a fully integrated solution for temperature control, monitoring and data archiving to ensure process traceability and product quality.
Backed by 150 years of industrial application experience, the ThermoView offering consists of the rugged TV40 thermal imager and ThermoView software. It was developed to meet today’s demanding industrial automation requirements and can be used in applications where multiple thermal imagers need to be displayed and operated together.
According to Jeff Kresch, global product manager, Fluke Process Instruments, the ThermoView TV40 provides a thermal imaging solution for monitoring, analyzing and resolving in a wide range of industrial environments. “The TV40 developed software is a turnkey solution intended for factory automation, process inspection and process monitoring applications, which Fluke Process Instruments has served for many years,” Kresch said. “This versatile thermal imager has the performance and personalization capabilities needed for continuous process monitoring and control.”
The standard TV40 thermal imager is offered with an “on-board” lens, which means that there are no external moving parts. It operates in ambient temperatures up to 122° F (50° C) and is housed in an IP67 enclosure using industrial sealed connectors. The camera has a web interface, and basic setup can be done via any personal computer (PC) with web browser. Remote motorized focus is utilized with sighting options based on IR-Fusion® technology — simultaneous thermal and visible remote sighting for easy alignment and continuous monitoring of process conditions. The camera’s GigE interface allows for high-speed data transfer at 60 frames per second and a Power over Ethernet (PoE) option.
ThermoView full system software offers a variety of analysis and process monitoring tools in a single package. It runs on Windows 7, 8 and 10 operating systems, and multiple language versions are available. Features include
1) Continuous or intermittent inspection of temperature events.
2) Independent emissivity for each Area of Interest (AOI) and user-configurable setup of temperature conditions to trigger events or alarms, which can interface to discrete input/output (I/O) devices.
3) Software designed to interface with process control equipment, receiving synchronization inputs and providing pass/fail logic outputs; perform product inspections, temperature alarming and monitoring; and enable process temperature archiving.
4) Temperature analysis tools for trending and product troubleshooting, as well as I/O alarming for over and under heating conditions.
5) Analysis capabilities for real-time isotherm, subtraction, histograms and trending analysis.
A lite version of ThermoView software is available to help users become familiar with the features and benefits of the TV40 thermal imager. The software displays thermal images from the imager, loads off-line images/sequences and copies images to a clipboard.
ThermoView TV40 Thermal Imagers are available with environmental outdoor enclosures, air purge and other accessories. They are shipped with manuals, calibration certification, a quick reference guide and a safety sheet. All ThermoView thermal imagers are offered with a two-year warranty.
