INFRARED CAMERA » FLIR A325

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION IR CAMERA

The A320 is an affordable and accurate solution for machine vision and automation systems that require non-contact imaging and temperature measurements. It
is a complete machine vision and remote monitoring system that immediately identifies thermal problems that would otherwise go undetected. Its built-in logic
makes it ideal for safety/security systems, and for product and process monitoring in quality/reliability assurance programs.

• Real-time Analog andMPEG-4DigitalVideoOutput
• Stand-AloneOperation,No PCNeeded
• Multiple Users can AccessData fromMultiple Cameras
• Maintenance-free, Uncooled,MicrobolometerDetector

Find Faults Quickly
Finding and resolving problems early can save
thousands of dollars by resolving safety issues,
cutting down on scrap and warranty costs, and
improving product quality. The A320 can spot
subtle temperature variations undetectable by
any other means. These can be easily monitored
with its thermal imaging, temperature alarms, and
actual temperature readouts.

Instant Non-contact Temperatures
The A320 is designed to deliver accurate
thermographic imaging and repeatable
temperature measurements in a wide range of
automation applications. Each thermal image is
built from 76,800 individual picture elements that
are sampled by the cameras on-board electronics
and software to measure temperature. The realtime
16-bit 320x240 image data can be used to
monitor and help control a production process, or
can be processed by the cameras on-board
intelligence to autonomously generate multiple
independent digital alarms. Digital video
transmissions are facilitated using MPEG-4
compressed image format.

Outstanding Imaging and High Thermal Sensitivity
From the beginning, the A320 was developed to
deliver accurate radiometric imaging and
repeatable temperature measurements. It
features an advanced, uncooled microbolometer
focal plane array (FPA) detector that delivers crisp,
longwave images in a multitude of palettes.
Temperature variations as small as 0.08 ?C can be
detected.

Extensive Connectivity Options
Multiple A320s can be networked through their
100baseT Ethernet connections, and
synchronized through the SNTP protocol. Each
camera can be assigned a unique IP address for
detection and data exchange on a network. FLIRs
IR Monitor software can be used with a PC for
camera control, configuration and monitoring via
the network. This also provides instant access to
A320 thermal images and temperature data by
any authorized user via LAN/WAN. In addition,
alarm messages can be sent by email to a remote
location using the SMTP or FTP protocol.Wireless
connection options are also available.
Plug-and-Play Setup
The A320 features plug-and-play setup. Simply
connect the camera to a PC monitor and
immediately view high quality, real-time
radiometric thermal images that accurately show
heat patterns and thermal anomalies.
Alternatively, images can be viewed on a
standalone video monitor by using the cameras
composite video output (NTSC or PAL).

Easy to Configure and Operate

The user-intuitive A320 is extremely easy to
operate. Its onboard logic and menu-driven
controls enables users to select and manipulate
multiple target spots, temperature range, image
color palettes, multiple alarms and more quickly
and easily. Adding IR imaging to a machine vision
system is no more complex than adding a visual
image camera. Moreover, the A320 provides a
simple way to create command and control
programs through its bundled IR Config and IR
Monitor software modules.

Easier Program Development
FLIR supplies multiple tools for developing
customized programs that help monitor and
control processes with the A320 Series. These
include the ThermoVision? LabVIEW? Digital
Toolkit and ThermoVision? System Developers Kit
(SDK). In addition, the Digital Toolkit enables the
easy creation of a machine vision or measuring
application with a FLIR IR camera within National
Instruments LabVIEW programming environment.
The SDK is an ActiveX component with methods,
properties and events that allows Visual
Basic/C++ developers to control FLIR cameras and
convert incoming IR images to temperature
images.

Ultra-compact, Rugged and Lightweight
Built to operate unattended for long periods in
harsh industrial environments, the A320 has an
IP40 rating. Its compact design and light weight
(less than 2 lbs.) allow it to be mounted in remote
locations that may be optimal for data collection.
By taking advantage of Power Over Ethernet
(POE) capabilities, local power supplies are not
needed. Fully configurable GPIO and V-sync
functionality allows the A320 to be integrated
quickly and easily into
