Teledyne FLIR expands Si124 acoustic imaging capabilities with integration of Thermal Studio software suite
Teledyne FLIR has announced the addition of the FLIR Thermal Studio software suite to the entire line of FLIR Si124 industrial acoustic imaging cameras: the Si124, Si124-LD and Si124-PD. Software integration provides Si124 users with additional advanced troubleshooting and processing capabilities for predictive maintenance on critical components, including high voltage or compressed air electrical systems, providing increased productivity and streamlined analysis.
The FLIR Thermal Studio software suite allows operators to quickly create professional inspection reports, including over 100 images in fully customizable templates, overlays and formulas. Advanced features include batch processing and Magic Wand speed up post-processing tasks for streamlined thermal analysis, with the added ability to enhance thermal video by analyzing, recording, segmenting and editing footage in software. The added value of offline reporting provides a comprehensive detection and analysis package for the family of easy-to-use, high-performance acoustic imaging cameras.
For operators already using Thermal Studio Suite on other thermal imaging devices, they can now create a single report using images from multiple devices, including one of the Si124 family cameras. They can also customize templates and combine sound imaging and thermal imaging assets into one. Users can preview, open and process the images, then adjust them in the report while continuing to perform inspections.
“The recent expansion of the FLIR Si124 camera family provides tailored solutions specific to compressed air leak detection or particle discharge detection for end users ranging from utility infrastructure to industrial environments. plant, at a fraction of the cost,” said Rob Milner, Global Business Development Manager, Condition Monitoring for Teledyne FLIR.
“Now, with the integration of the FLIR Thermal Studio software suite, users can take advantage of advanced processing features and undisputed reporting capabilities such as leak quantification, partial discharge severity assessment, and options ratio in thermal and acoustic images to create a fast classification and quantification process. ”
The original FLIR Si124-PD, Si124-LD and Si124 industrial acoustic imaging camera models with the FLIR Thermal Studio software suite are available for purchase worldwide from Teledyne FLIR and its authorized resellers. To learn more or to purchase, visit https://www.flir.com/products/si124
Flagship FLIR Si124 locates pressurized leaks in compressed air systems and detects partial or corona discharges of high voltage electrical systems, offering the widest range of functionality in a single package. The lightweight, one-handed solution with 124 microphones can identify problems up to 130 meters (430 feet) away and 10 times faster than traditional detection methods via an accurate acoustic image that visually displays ultrasound information in a visible image. The camera allows inspectors to locate a sound source, even in noisy industrial environments or bright exteriors. To learn more, visit https://www.flir.com/products/si124/.
Si124-PD for partial discharge detection
The FLIR Si124-PD is specifically designed for electrical and utility inspection, with automatic electrical fault classification for partial discharge problems, including surface discharge, floating discharge, and air discharge. With the PD Gravity Assessment software function, users can also input component type, equipment voltage, and distance from the component to obtain a specific gravity assessment at these parameters. This feature is included in the FLIR Acoustic Camera Viewer cloud software included with the camera. To learn more, visit https://www.flir.com/products/si124-pd/.
Si124-LD for compressed air leak detection
The Si124-LD features real-time leak sizing and cost analysis on the device, allowing users to instantly view the leak rate on screen as it occurs , either in liters per minute (L/min) or cubic feet per minute (CFM), and to quantify the size of the leak. This feature provides a quick assessment of the amount of air lost and estimated cost savings resulting from resolving the issue. As part of a regular maintenance program, organizations can extend the life and efficiency of existing compressors while reducing the need to install new units while reducing electricity costs.
