Workswell SMARTIS (Smart Thermal Imaging System) is the first sample of a new category of so-called intelligent thermal cameras. It is an all-in-one solution featuring a thermal camera, control unit, I/O card, as well as a TPC/IP interface integrated within a single casing including an in-built webserver allowing for communication with a superior system, including any PLC with this interface.
The Workswell SMARTIS thermal camera is designed for process automation, machine vision, but also for continuous measurements of temperatures in metrological and research applications. The thermal camera has been designed for use in process automation in such a way that it can autonomously control a smaller process or its part or become a part of the control system. For this reason, it has been equipped with a TCP/IP interface (Ethernet 100Mb/sec, RJ-45) and also complemented with digital inputs and an analogue output (current loop 0-24 ma/12 V).
