The FLIR Ax5-Series is the perfect solution for those applications that require the benefits of a thermal image. The FLIR Ax5-Series camera has features and functions that make it the natural choice for anyone who uses PC software to solve problems.
The Ax5-Series are low-cost infrared cameras which are ideal tools for putting thermal imaging at work in an automation or machine vision environment. Both models are extremely compact. They can easily be integrated into a machine vision environment.
The FLIR A65 produces crisp thermal images with 640 x 512 pixels. Users that do not need this high image quality for their application can choose for the FLIR A35, which produces thermal images of 320 x 256 pixels. The FLIR Ax5-Series makes temperature differences as small as 50 mk clearly visible.
GigE Vision is a camera interface standard developed using the Gigabit Ethernet communication interface. GigE Vision is the first standard to allow for fast image transfer using low cost standard cables, even over long distances. With GigE Vision, hardware and software from different vendors can operate seamlessly over Gigabit Ethernet connections.
The goal of GenICam is to provide a generic programming interface for all types of cameras. Regardless of interface technology (Gigabit Ethernet, Camera Link, IEEE-1394 etc) or features implemented, the Application Programming Interface (API) will always be the same. The GenICam protocol also makes it possible to use third party software with the camera.
Allows you to do temperature measurements, in a non-contact mode, within any 3rd party software. A built-in Gigabit Ethernet connection allows real time 14-bit image streaming to computer.
Possible to configure one camera to be master and others to be slave(s) for applications that call for more than one camera to cover the object or for stereoscopic applications.
