Thermographic System FIRE-SCAN for Early Fire Detection
Early fire detection system FIRE-SCAN enables capturing of critical temperature indoor and on open-air grounds at an early stage. An automatic calibration with threshold values results in prompt alerting up to automated fire fighting. However, should a fire break out, FIRE-SCAN provides an additional option for monitoring the area surrounded by fire even in case of smoke or formation of dust. Thus, fire fighting can be supported very effectively.
High Thermal and Spatial Resolutions of Integrated Infrared Camera Assure Success
The application of high-performance of infrared camera systems for early fire protection systems allows a detection of smallest pocket of embers due to their high spatial resolution, meaning a sufficient number of pixels. In case of an insufficient number of pixels for the to-be-monitored area, it is possible to integrate further infrared cameras into the system FIRE-SCAN without any problems. The system’s sphere of action can be additionally expanded at a constant spatial resolution by mounting the infrared camera onto a remote-controlled Pan-tilt head. Besides the infrared camera’s spatial resolution, which meets highest requirements, the infrared camera system also features an optimised thermal resolution. Only this combination makes it possible to detect smallest temperature changes or hidden pockets of embers at an early stage. As may be necessary, this information will be displayed in control room or directly integrated into the available control system.
Systems with ATEX Certification
FIRE-SCAN is applied, for example, in the chemical industry. The development of explosive gas-air mixtures represents a central hazard there. Therefore, system components that have a certification in accordance with the ATEX Directive are used for such applications. These are primarily protective housings for thermal imaging and visual cameras, pan/tilt systems and electrical distribution systems. They are suitable for deployment in potentially explosive areas 1 and 2.
Thermographic Measurement and Monitoring in Plant Operation
In the age of Industry 4.0, the demands on system suppliers are growing, not just with regard to the primary measurement and monitoring tasks, but also with regard to data networking and structure. To meet these demands, InfraTec has developed a platform‐independent internal data structure, which represents both the measurement and alarm data as well as the measurement sequences. Interfaces to control systems of leading suppliers, e.g. via TCP/IP in the PROFINET, Modbus, CC‐Link and many other versions, can be achieved flexibly and economically. The proprietary Gigabit Ethernet data interfaces of fast infrared thermography camera heads permit real‐time data analysis and evaluation.
