FLIR releases new and improved A35/A65

improved A35/A65, New FLIR A65 A65 Version 2016August 29, 2016 – FLIR Systems, Inc. announced new improved A35/A65 thermal imaging temperature sensors for machine vision.

Designed for process control and quality assurance – but applicable to condition monitoring and fire prevention as well – the upgraded A35 and A65 cameras can help processes run smoother. The A35 and A65 include greater vibration specifications to survive harsher conditions. The cameras are available with 10 field-of-view options, from 8 degrees up to 90 degrees, to give users the option to pinpoint a single target or monitor a large area. The A35 and A65 are the leaders in digital communication standards, offering GigE Vision™ compatibility and GenICam protocol support.

FLIR’s A35 and A65 thermal imaging temperature sensors are available now through established FLIR sales channels, starting at $4,995 for the A35 and $7,895 for the A65.

FLIR has also added additional lens options to both, the FLIR A35 and the FLIR A65 cameras. Previously, there were only two lens choices each, the 25 degree and the 45 degree. The additional lens options provide wider and more narrow field of view options for both camera models. The wider angle lenses open up applications where the camera has to be placed very close to the object, while maintaining a decent image size. The narrow angle (telephoto) lens options allow the camera to be placed much further away, without sacrificing resolution. For a specific line up of all available lens options, please go to the product page and click on the “Specifications Tab”.

Matthew Clavey, director of Thermal Vision Research, said:

“The MIO Series modules developed by MoviTHERM are a ground-breaking innovation for the thermal imaging industry. For the first time, thermal output can be monitored and warning triggers acted upon through a simple web-based interface – eliminating the need for a vast array of potentially unreliable supporting infrastructure.”

“The two compatible cameras, the FLIR AX8 and FLIR A310f, are popular recommendations for use where there might be issues with overheating such as plant or server rooms, fire protection installations, warehouse management or even waste disposal sites. And then, the functions of the MIO Series are simply immense – from accessibility via a smart phone**, to connectivity across vast multi-camera networks. This really is a new opportunity and a bench mark in thermal imaging monitoring technology.”

Each MIO Series module comes with eight digital alarm outputs and eight channels of 4 to 20mA outputs which can be assigned to any of the connected cameras. Up to seven cameras can be monitored through a single unit or the system can be scaled up for connection to over 100 cameras. Set up is straightforward using a built-in web-server and firmware can be upgraded when improvements are made using a simple download process.
