Remote Monitoring Applications made simple!

Use the MIO-FCR module to monitor your critical equipment. Simply connect up to seven FLIR® FC-Series R Thermal Cameras per module through Ethernet. Configure your temperature alarm thresholds for each camera using a web browser and start monitoring – it’s that simple!

Ideal for:

  • Remote Temperature Monitoring
  • Monitoring & Process Control
  • Early Fire Detection
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Electrical Panel & Substation Monitoring
  • Warehouse Monitoring
  • Critical Vessel Monitoring
  • Furnace Monitoring
  • IT Server Room Monitoring
  • and more…

MIO-AX8 / MIO-A310

Reliable, Rugged and Fool-proof

Most of today’s monitoring systems are based on PCs running MS Windows Operating Systems. These systems are plagued with system failures and reliability issues. This is not a good proposition for monitoring critical systems, equipment or assets.

MoviTHERM’s Intelligent I/O module is different. It is based on a reliable and proven embedded architecture. No PC, Operating System or Hard Drives to worry about. It’s only job is to monitor FLIR® FC-Series R Thermal Cameras and alarm you, if a temperature gets out of bounds. It even detects if a camera stops communicating, is powered off or disconnected.

Each module comes standard with reverse polarity protection, transient suppression, thermal overload protection and optical isolation.

MoviTHERM has designed the MIO-FCR module to be future-proof as well. The module’s firmware can be upgraded in the field. Just download the latest firmware from our website and use the built in web browser interface to apply the update. You will have to enter a password for this, of course!

Flexibility & Precision

You can mix and match the available digital and analog outputs any way you like. Whether you want to use one alarm output for each camera, or multiple outputs for one camera – the choice is yours!

All eight 4 to 20mA outputs have a high-precision digital to analog converter (DAC) with 16-bit resolution. This assures that you get the same resolution out of your temperature measurements as if you were connected to the camera directly.

Easy Configuration via built-in Web-Server

The MIO Series Intelligent I/O module comes with a built-in web-server for easy configuration. No additional software is needed to setup your thermal monitoring system when using the MoviTHERM MIO I/O module. The web-server interface is intuitive. Simply add the IP address of each of the connected FLIR cameras. Select the desired alarm logic from drop down menus. Save your settings to the non-volatile memory of the MIO Series Intelligent I/O module and start monitoring instantly.

Intelligent & Packed with Features

The MoviTHERM MIO Intelligent I/O module is based on a powerful ARM© microcontroller architecture. When the module powers up, it automatically looks for all configured cameras on the network and connects to them. You can choose between different temperature monitoring modes, using drop down menus. Select either MIN, MAX or AVERAGE temperature readings to be monitored. There is also a global smoothing filter available, in case your temperature signal fluctuates too much. This averaging filter is useful to help avoid false alarms in flame or oven monitoring applications, for example. The module monitors each camera and evaluates the temperature reading several times a second. Even with the averaging filter enabled, the monitoring speed is still once per second (1Hz).

  • Alarm monitoring based on MAX, MIN or AVERAGE temperature readings
  • Configuration of Camera and I/O module via web-server
  • Receive Alarm Images via Email or FTP

Do you need to monitor more than 7 cameras? – No problem!

Just add more modules to your system. With each module added, you can monitor seven additional cameras. There is no limit to how many modules you can add. Adding a module also provides 8 additional digital outputs for alarming as well as eight additional current loop outputs (4 to 20mA). Connect the current loop outputs to your existing plant monitoring system for trending, data logging and other monitoring needs.

Connecting a FLIR FC-Series R Camera to the MoviTHERM MIO

In this video, we show how to configure the MoviTHERM MIO-FCR-1 and the FLIR FC-Series R thermal camera. Topics include setting ROIs, connecting the camera and MoviTHERM MIO-FCR-1, and how to assign alarms to the analog and digital outputs in the MoviTHERM MIO module.


MoviTHERM MIO Series – Product Demonstration

Markus Tarin, CEO and President of MoviTHERM, gives a product demonstration of a remote monitoring solution based on the MoviTHERM MIO-AX8-7 with four FLIR AX8 thermal cameras. Used with a FLIR NVR it becomes a complete remote monitoring solution.
