Industrial ThermoInspector


The Workswell ThermoInspector parameterized NDT inspection system for inspecting quality in production and for fire-protection on dumps, incineration plants for communal waste and in warehouses and industrial operating units. 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 from one to four thermal cameras that can be simultaneously connected into the system. The delivery of the system includes Workswell WIC thermal cameras with high thermal sensitivity (up to 30 mK), a high temperature range (up to 2000 °C) and the level of the coverage (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 peripherals with 8 x digital inputs / outputs, 4x Ethernet interface with an integrated PoE supply and the level of the coverage of IP64. The system is cooled completely passively without the need for ventilators. 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 high-quality touch full HD screen. In the case of a central unit with the touch screen, the level of the coverage is IP65.

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


System function

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

A matter of course is the option to setting the visualization (temperature profiles and time courses, method of visualization, including setting of pallets, etc.), alarms and evaluation rules, etc., The system enables to record measured data and individual events on HDD or share through the Ethernet network.

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