IoT-ready Thermal Smart Cameras for North American Market

MoviTHERM introduces IoT-ready Thermal Smart Cameras to North American Market

Irvine, CA, USA. Friday, December 7, 2018

MoviTHERM – Advanced Thermography Solutions announces today the introduction of a new breed of IoT-ready Thermal Smart Cameras to the North American market.

IRSX thermal smart cameras

IRSX Thermal Smart Camera – Compact Version

MoviTHERM, a leading US distributor for the new IRSX Thermal Smart Camera (from Automation Technology GmbH, Germany), is excited to offer a vastly more capable, non-contact alternative to the conventional RTD and thermocouple sensors of the past. The IRSX Series of thermal smart cameras offer a slew of industrial and web-technology based communication protocols, making them a perfect candidate for IoT (Internet of Things) applications. By eliminating the need for a PC and thermal imaging software, system complexity and associated costs are reduced. Camera setup and configuration is all done via standard web browser.

A Modern Solution

The need for sensing heat or measuring temperature in manufacturing processes is not new. A multitude of temperature sensing solutions are available and have been around for decades. Traditionally, wired temperature sensors, such as thermocouples or RTDs did this job. However, sensors of these types must be in contact with the medium or part that needs to be measured, which is not always desirable or even possible. Additionally, thermocouples and RTDs only provide a very localized temperature measurement. Things become even more challenging, when the product to be measured is in motion.

Thermal Cameras address these challenges and provide a non-contact method of temperature sensing from a safe distance. The image detector of these cameras is made up from thousands of temperature-sensing pixels, thus providing much more insight to temperature distribution and behavior.

“During recent years, the cost for these cameras have come down significantly, but thermal camera-based systems are still relatively complex to install and maintain. The IRSX Thermal Smart Cameras really is a game-changer, providing all the benefits of a thermal camera, with the flexibility of IoT integration.”, says Markus Tarin, President and CEO of MoviTHERM.

IRSX Thermal Smart Camera - Open Version

IRSX Thermal Smart Camera – Open Version

Multiple Options

IRSX Cameras are available in two different sensor resolutions, the IRSX 336 with 336 x 256 pixels and the IRSX-640 with 640 x 512 pixels. Both camera models come in a ruggedized aluminum enclosure with IP67 protection. A large selection of lens options, from super wide angle to telephoto, assures the perfect fit for just about any application. An open frame camera option for customer specific designs and OEMs round up the offering.

The cameras are competitively-priced, which makes them perfect candidates for a variety of industrial applications, such as machine condition monitoring, package seal inspection, continuous web monitoring, gas flare monitoring, hot glue verification, in process hot gas and infrared weld monitoring, non-destructive testing and many more.

MoviTHERM offers free application consulting for customers interested in implementing these smart cameras or other thermal imaging solutions. Company Contact

Equipment Financing helps ease Capital Expense

Equipment Financing helps ease Capital Expense, shortens Return on Investment for Machine Vision Customers

Epsilon Technologies International, LLC doing business as MoviMED & MoviTHERM is partnering with SCL Equipment Finance to offer attractive equipment financing.

IRVINE, CA, USA, November 28, 2018 — The need to innovate and automate using machine vision technology is often hindered by lengthy capital expense budget approval processes. Consumer products get shipped un-inspected and processes go un-monitored for months on end while waiting for internal budget approvals. Continual process improvements are being put on hold, while awaiting completion of the lengthy financial approval process. Smaller companies may face additional challenges by not being able to afford a highly sought-after machine vision solution at all.

We are excited to help our customers realize their automation goals faster. Our new equipment finance programs help accelerate their return on investment, while preserving their working capital!
Markus Tarin, President & CEO, MoviMED / MoviTHERM

equipment financingFlexible equipment financing options can be a valuable tool in overcoming these challenges of today’s manufacturers. For example, a lease-to-own program will allow a company to acquire capital equipment in a short period of time and put it to work, while making affordable monthly payments. More often than not, the monthly return on investment of the machine vision equipment exceeds the cost of the lease payment, thus leading to an instant positive cash flow.

Additionally, customers can take advantage of the recently changed tax laws to fully write off the purchase price of the equipment in the first year, while stretching the payments over two, three or more years.

As interest rates are rising, more companies are electing to take advantage of equipment financing to stay competitive and keep innovating, while preserving their working capital.

MoviTHERM grows Non-Destructive Test Equipment Sales Force, expands to Canada

Irvine, CA – October 18th, 2017

MoviTHERM Advanced Thermography Solutions (http://www.movitherm.com) is pleased to announce the expansion of its extended sales force in both the US, and now into Canada. Wednesday’s move comes in response to the increasing demand for Infrared Non-Destructive Testing Solutions across several industry sectors.

This expansion builds on a previous partnership formed between Composite Automation, LLC and MoviTHERM. Both companies have found a synergistic match based on their respective background and solution offerings.

“John Melilli and Composite Automation LLC have built a winning NDT sales team. Each team member has individually distinguished himself in the Composite Manufacturing Industry. As a unit, they offer unrivaled expertise in a wide range of applications. We are very excited to have this dynamic sales force representing the MoviTHERM thermal inspection and non-destructive testing products, as they expand across the US, and now in Canada too!”, said Markus Tarin, President & CEO of MoviTHERM

MoviTHERM offers a range of NDT inspection solutions for structural components manufactured using carbon fiber and other composite materials. As the number and diversity of these components grows, the need for more sophisticated inspection technology is also growing. Traditional Ultrasound NDT technology is not well-suited to complex, curved geometries that are becoming more prevalent in composite parts manufacturing. Infrared Non-Destructive Test Systems (“IR-NDT”) offers several advantages over ultrasound equipment. IR-NDT based system can quickly inspect large, curved geometries and offers a cost-effective, efficient alternative to traditional ultrasonic solutions.

A lineup of MoviTHERM’s IR-NDT solutions can be found on their website: http://movitherm.com/solutions/non-destructive-testing/
