Condition Monitoring News 2014
Oct 10 2014New Line Up Announced For Thermography & Flir Cameras
Monition offer a complete range of the latest Thermography products and services for industry across a wide range of sectors. An infrared image that integrates accurate temperature data provides maintenance experts with crucial information about the condition of all kinds of equipment. As a non-contact measurement tool that also makes invisible heat issues visible, thermal cameras let technicians inspect production equipment more safely even at peak operation. Along with troubleshooting, thermal imagers can also help optimise the production process itself as well as monitor quality control.
Mechanical Thermography is the safest, non-intrusive and most efficient technique for identifying faulty & overheating components in mechanical equipment. Electrical systems are the most critical items within office buildings and industrial applications. There are considerable benefits to be gained by protecting these systems and reducing unplanned stoppages. Thermography is ideal for carrying out Electrical Safety Inspections, be it to source that loose bus-bar connection or that overloaded component in your main electrical panel. All of our latest range of Thermography products can be found on our dedicated e-commerce system at www.conditionmonitoring.net/flir-cameras/ or you can browse our website for more information.
Sep 2 2014 IP65 Standard for Shaft Alignment Tools
All of our shaft alignment tools are IP65 classified which makes them very robust and durable in an industrial environment. IP means “Ingress Protection” and is an international guideline for the manufacture of enclosures that house electrical equipment. It also gives guidance regarding different types of material that can penetrate an enclosure and possibly cause damage to the device which in this case would be the shaft alignment tool. Please view our video presentation below for an overview of the latest in shaft alignment technology and our IP65 standard.
Our shaft alignment tools are IP65 classified, which means total protection against dust ingress, shock proofing, protection against water jets and water splashes. In addition, our tools also offer a high level of protection against impacts and have been tested accordingly. All of our shaft alignment products can be found on our dedicated e-commerce system at www.conditionmonitoring.net/shaft-alignment/ or you can browse our website for more information.

May 10 2014 Thermal Cameras Get Maximum Performance in Race Cars
From minivans to Formula One racing, FLIR thermal cameras have been at the bleeding edge of automobile development for over 30 years. Because thermal cameras let you see temperature differences while simultaneously providing up to 307,000 accurate, non-contact temperature measurements 30 times a second, they’re the go-to tools for developing the most efficient brakes, engine components, exhaust systems, tires, cooling systems, even seat warmers.
Racing teams at all levels of the sport use thermal cameras to squeeze every last bit of performance out of these same systems, paying special attention to their tires to make sure they’re always running the right tires and the right air pressure for the conditions so they have just the right contact patch. Monition are the leading FLIR camera specialist in the UK with a dedicated website offering more information please click here.
Mar 25 2014 FLIR Brings Richer Detail Images To All Its Handheld Industrial & Building Cameras
nnovative, FLIR patented MSX® technology allows for faster and more detailed electrical, mechanical and building inspections. However, a thermal image alone is not always enough to help them understand what they are seeing. For that reason, FLIR Systems developed the MSX® Multi-Spectral Dynamic image mode. MSX imaging brings together both the visual and thermal spectrums in a striking, innovative way.
Key details apparent to the naked eye like numbers, labels, signage, and structural features can get lost in a regular thermal image, often requiring a separate digital photo to reference the location of the temperature issue you have found. A regular thermal image only displays heat signatures, which can cause details to get lost in the haze if they present a similar temperature. To overcome this, FLIR cameras with MSX use an internal digital camera to enhance the thermal image. The high-contrast skeletonized visual image allows for key aspects of the visible spectrum to be overlaid on top of the thermal output, while still keeping the important thermal information prominent.
Consider the elbow connectors (images at the right) for example. Through the thermal camera you can see that one of the connectors is hot, and with your own eyes you can see a label identifying each connection on the panel. But the ink on those labels is going to have the exact same temperature as the sticker they are printed on, so your thermal imager will not differentiate between them. With MSX on the other hand this is clearly visible in the image.
The technology is now onboard most of FLIR’s thermal cameras for the industrial and building market. MSX instantaneously generates a definitive, all-in-one thermal picture that easily orients you to the location of the problem as soon as you see it on the screen or in a report. With the FLIR format you’ll save all images (MSX, thermal and visual) in one push of a button.
Feb 10 2014 FLIR Cameras Announce The Smartphone Thermal Imaging Device
Thermal Imaging technology on your Smartphone has arrived - FLIR ONE™ is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on your phone screen and perform temperature calculations. Heat sensed by an infrared camera can be very precisely measured, allowing you to use the FLIR ONE™ in a variety of practical and fun ways by revealing a thermal world not visible to the unaided eye.
Everything around you either emits or reflects heat energy. Thermal imaging makes the otherwise invisible world of heat energy visible to your eyes. Visible light doesn’t affect the thermal world, so you can see equally well in highly lit and totally dark environments the thermal image is the same. This allows you to visualize the effects of many real world events and conditions that are otherwise impossible to detect. There are countless new, useful, and fun ways thermal imaging will integrate into your daily life. The list of uses is long and will grow dramatically when the consumer world begins to See the Heat.
