FLIR says initial shipments of the new thermal sensor solution will be prioritized for entities working to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus
ARLINGTON, Va. — FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announces the release of the FLIR A400/A700 Thermal Smart Sensor and Thermal Image Streaming fixed camera solutions for monitoring equipment, production lines, critical infrastructure and screening for elevated skin temperatures.
These configurable smart camera systems are said to provide accurate, non-contact temperature monitoring across a wide range of disciplines, including manufacturing process control, product development, emissions monitoring, waste management, facilities maintenance, and Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) improvements.
The FLIR A400/A700 Thermal Smart Sensor solution initially will be prioritized for those responding to COVID-19. For all applications, the series offers multi-image streaming, edge computing and WiFi connectivity to help speed data flow and enable faster decisions.
The Image Streaming configuration provides multiple thermal streaming capabilities to help optimize process control, improve quality assurance, or identify potential failures that could shut down a production line.
Users design their systems by choosing either the Smart Sensor or Imaging Streaming configurations, selecting either the A400 or A700 camera body based on the resolutions they need, and then adding lenses and a range of optional features to fit their application.
FLIR says it is also currently in beta testing for an automated elevated skin temperature screening software solution that is fully integrated with its United States Food and Drug Administration-certified thermal cameras.
The solution is said to be designed to rapidly increase the accuracy, ease-of-use, and speed of existing screening procedures. FLIR will share an announcement about its solution in Q2 2020.
