FLIR AX8FLIR AX8 - IP Camera

Thermal Imaging Camera For Continuous Condition and Safety Monitoring

FLIR AX8 is a thermal sensor with imaging capabilities. Combining thermal and visual cameras in a small, affordable package, the AX8 provides continuous temperature monitoring and alarming for of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.

The AX8 helps you guard against unplanned outages, service interruptions, and equipment failure. You’ll get the benefits of continuous condition monitoring and hot spot detection without the need for periodic manual scans.

Compact and easy to install, AX8 provides continuous monitoring of electrical cabinets, process and manufacturing areas, data centers, energy generation and distribution, transportation and mass transit, storage facilities and refrigeration warehouses.

Automatic analysis and alarms

With its streaming video output, the AX8 not only gives you live video of every installation, but it also provides automated alarming when pre-set temperature thresholds are exceeded as well as temperature trend analysis.

Industrial protocol

Since FLIR A310 is Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP compliant analysis and alarm results can easily be shared to a PLC. Digital inputs/outputs are available for alarms and control of external equipment. An image masking function allows you to select only the relevant part of the image for your analysis.

Compact & Easy to install

Combining thermal and visual cameras in a small, affordable package, the AX8 measures only 54 x 25 x 95 mm, making it easy to install in space-constrained areas for uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.

Multiple video options

With AX8, you can view its thermal imagery, visible light imagery, or the two combined into FLIR’s proprietary, patent pending MSX multispectral dynamic imaging. MSX provides image detail from the visible camera embossed on the thermal image, giving you, sharper edge detail, the ability to read labels and better contextual awareness.

Must Read Guidebooks

Booklet: Thermal imaging guidebook for industrial applications

Numerous industries worldwide have discovered the advantage of incorporating infrared cameras in their industrial processes and programs. This booklet is an in-depth guide for these industrial applications.

Booklet: Thermal imaging guidebook for building applications

Thermal imaging cameras are powerful and non invasive tools for monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. Energy losses, missing insulations, air leaks, moisture and many other building related problems become immediately and clearly visible on a thermal image.

Booklet: Thermal imaging guidebook for automation applications

Automated IR (infrared) radiation imaging offers the potential for improving a host of industrial production applications, including process monitoring and control, quality assurance, asset management, and machine condition monitoring.

Booklet: Thermal imaging guidebook for gas detection applications

Infrared cameras can also play a major role in helping to decrease environmental damage. They are successfully used for detecting insufficient insulation in buildings, identified as one of the highest opportunity areas for decreasing the greenhouse effect, as well as detecting environmentally dangerous gas leaks.

Booklet: Thermal imaging guidebook for R&D Professionals

Although infrared radiation (IR) is not detectable by the human eye, an IR camera can convert it to a visual image that depicts thermal variations across an object or scene.
