Industrial ThermoInspector


The Workswell ThermoInspector parameterized NDT inspection system for inspecting production quality. The ThermoInspector system is well-established in numerous areas of industry: plastic, glass, steel, foundry, wood, paper and chemicals, etc.

System composition

The main part of the Workswell ThermoInspector system consists of a central unit and up to to four thermal cameras that can be simultaneously connected to the system. The delivery of the system includes Workswell WIC thermal cameras with a high thermal sensitivity (up to 30 mK), a high temperature range (up to 2000 °C) and a strong sealed enclosure (up to IP65). The system is also compatible with FLIR stationary thermal cameras.

The central unit of the system is a universal industrial PC with included peripherals, 8 x digital inputs / outputs, 4x Ethernet interface with an integrated PoE supply and a IP64 rated case (dust tight). The system is cooled completely passively without the need for ventilators or fans. The central unit is available in two versions: as an independent industrial PC with dimensions of 26 x 22 x 8cm, or as an all-in-one PC with a high-quality touch full HD screen and a IP65 enclosure rated as “dust tight” and “slightly water resistant”.

The full specification of the system is contained in the data sheet.


System function

The Workswell ThermoInspector is a programmable system to inspect quality production. A major benefit of this system is the wide-ranging options for the configuration and programming of the system, including the appearance and evaluation of functions. The system also allows you to create programme modules for specific machine vision algorithms or videometry, which is required for some applications.

The system also allows you to set the visualisation (temperature profiles and time courses, method of visualisation, including setting of pallets, etc.), alarms, evaluation rules etc. Of the system. The system can record data constantly and can record individual anomalous events on a HDD or to a server via Ethernet.

Using digital inputs and outputs, the system can be connected to the master control system, such as PLC or it can directly control the manufacturing machinery and process.
