        • Thermography Systeme for Monitoring of Industrial Plants

        • IRMonitor is a flexible solution concept for early fire detection and temperature monitoring of industrial plants by means of thermography. Infrared cameras detect objects through their thermal radiation and are able to perceive certain characteristics regarding the condition of these objects, which conventional cameras cannot pick up. IRMonitor is thereby able to detect potentially hazardous situations based on critical temperature developments and to initiate security measures.

          With its combinable hardware and software modules, IRMonitor offers a flexible solution for early fire detection and plant monitoring. An IRMonitor system can be set up with a large number of infrared cameras so that even large areas with many different angles can be fully monitored. This allows reliable system solutions for both simple and complex applications that can easily be adapted to suit the customer’s specific requirements.

          Typical Applications:
          • Rafineries
          • Chemical Plants

          • Mobile NDT Systems for Maintenance

          • The mobile inspection system called C-CheckIR uses active thermography for the reliable detection of delaminations, water inclusions, debondings, etc. in composite materials. C-CheckIR fulfills the requirements of DIN 54192 for Non-destructive testing with active thermography and is suitable for several aircraft testing procedures (e.g. Airbus NTM 55-40-50 or Boeing procedure 737 NDT, part 9, 51-00-04, 53-30-01). ). C-CheckIR is easy to operate and does not require any extensive training. The complete inspection head of C-CheckIR is mounted on a light support frame that only needs to be placed at the right position on the object to be inspected. The system is controlled from a handy tablet-PC through a very intuitive user interface. For the most common materials, such as CRP or GRP, C-CheckIR already features pre-set inspection parameters, so that the operator can start measuring right away. Of course, the inspection parameters can be easily adjusted if required.

            The uncooled infrared camera, specially developed for NDI-tasks, offers a thermal sensitivity until now known only from thermal imagers with cooled detector. Moreover, all required components and functions have already been integrated into the inspection-head.

            The communication with the C-CheckIR Sensor takes place through a standard Ethernet cable, simplifying the connection of one or more Sensor heads to an evaluation system. The amount of components in the system has been reduced to a minimum, simplifying not only its installation, but also the required space and weight for mobile applications. The inspection heads are available with one, two and four excitation sources, enabling covering an area ranging from around 300 x 400 mm up to 1 m² per measurement. For the NDI measurements, the inspection heads support the techniques of Pulsed- and Lockin-Thermography with user-selectable excitation-patterns and frequencies.

            For an active thermography measurement, the sensor-head needs only to be connected to a laptop or desktop computer with the IrNDT analysis software. So, with C-CheckIR Sensor, AT offers its customers a very flexible NDT system that supports different evaluation methods and that can be used for mobile inspections as well as for Inline production processes.
