Electrical safety testing: FLIR Systems Inc. offers the AX8 fixed-mount temperature sensor. Combining thermal and visible cameras along with FLIR’s proprietary MSX technology in a small, affordable package, the AX8 is easy to install in space-constrained areas for automated and uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.

Enabled by FLIR’s Lepton thermal imaging core, the AX8 provides early detection of temperature-related issues in electrical and mechanical equipment, guarding against unplanned outages, service interruptions and equipment failure. The AX8 is cited to be the ideal temperature sensor for continuous condition monitoring and fire prevention without the need for periodic manual scans.

The AX8 thermal imager has 4,800 active temperature points per image, provides streaming temperature data over industry-standard interfaces (Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP) for easy analysis, has a built-in Web interface, and includes a full suite of analysis and alarm functions that automatically send alerts when the AX8 detects elevated temperatures.
