Non-contact voltage detector for electrical applications

Non-contact voltage detector for electrical applications
FLIR Systems has announced the FLIR VP50-2 Non-Contact Voltage Detector and Flashlight with three alarm types for safer, easier field-troubleshooting and verification of electrical installations. The VP50-2 is designed for professionals who service electrical equipment in residential, commercial, and industrial facilities to reliably check whether an AC circuit is live before beginning work; detect voltage on exposed conducting parts or through insulation; identify live wires within electrical panels, switches, and outlets; and trace live wires and map circuits.

Substation saves substantial costs from a chance thermal scan

Substation saves substantial costs from a chance thermal scan
During a routine inspection at a substation, a Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) electrician felt heat blast his face as he passed within a couple of metres of an energised transformer bank. Some heat is expected, of course, but the intensity of it alarmed him. He immediately grabbed a handheld thermal imaging camera from his van and verified that there was a major issue and the system was shut down for investigation.

Brickstream people counting sensor with employee filter solution

Brickstream people counting sensor with employee filter solution
FLIR Systems has announced the latest generation of the FLIR Brickstream 3D Gen 2 people counting sensor. This new version includes an employee filtering feature designed to provide retail and shopping businesses with more accurate customer traffic data and sales conversion metrics. The employee filtering feature uses a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and employee-worn tags to automatically identify and remove staff from customer counts, a process that can otherwise be manual or missing in retail environments.

Detecting leaks from electrical circuit breakers

Detecting leaks from electrical circuit breakers
It has been announced that FLIR Systems has published a new application spotlight that addresses the challenge that electrical power stations face in detecting gas leaks from their Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) circuit breakers. Sulfur hexafluoride circuit breakers protect electrical power stations and distribution systems by interrupting electric currents, when tripped by a protective relay.

Thermal imaging technology improves performance

Thermal imaging technology improves performance
From FLIR, the FLIR T640 thermal imaging camera and FLIR test and measurement tools, in combination with METERLiNK technology, prove to be invaluable tools for an Italian consultant service. Thermal imaging can be decisive in many fields and, as Corrado Ciuti, the owner of the professional practice Termogramma, says, its application is only limited by the imagination.

New technology can identify the quantification of gas leaks

New technology can identify the quantification of gas leaks
As part of a new partnership, FLIR Systems and Providence Photonics have announced a new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, which is designed to work exclusively with FLIR GF-Series cameras. Quantitative OGI represents a critical step forward in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions. How well the system is able to quantify a specific gas is a function of the FLIR camera, which may be more sensitive to one compound than another.

SLS detectors allow faster frame rates on thermal cameras

SLS detectors allow faster frame rates on thermal cameras
Two high-speed, longwave thermal cameras for demanding science and research applications have been introduced by FLIR Systems. The FLIR X6900sc SLS and FLIR X8500sc SLS were shown at the SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing convention in Anaheim. Both cameras provide the faster frame rates, shorter snapshot speeds, and wider temperature ranges needed for the most demanding scientific research applications.
