Radiometric thermal cameras detect temperature values of the object in the frame without any contact with it.
This feature is helpful to detect initial fire in typical situations, as warehouse, where is stored materials that burn by auto-ignition like wood, batteries, paper, coal, waste, etc.
it is of fundamental importance to detect rise in temperature before that initial fire begin to expand.
Thermostick elettrotecnica, in this regard, has designed a new Software “Thermofire”, that in combination with thermal radiometric cameras FLIR “A” series, is able to identify in short time hotspot that could be an initial fire.
Technical charatteristics of “Thermofire”:
Available in “real time” temperature chart of each thermal camera as a function of time.
Logfile and alarm/pre-alarm radiometric images are saved automatically in the Workstation server database.
Thermofire communicates with the other interfaces through an I/O board and MODBUS TCP-IP.
Enclosure for IO for Atex zones are available.
