Workswell FS-SMARTIS/EX-SMARTIS – Smart Thermal Imaging System

Workswell SMARTIS firesafety

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 TCP/IP interface integrated within a single casing including an in-built webserver allowing for communication with a superior system including any PLC.

The Workswell SMARTIS thermal camera can be operated and configured independently without the need for a direct connection to a PC or a superior unit. The thermal camera is offered in resolutions of 160 x 128 px, 336 x 256 px a 640 x 512 px. A LWIR (long wave infrared) microbolometer with the spectral range of 7.5 – 13.5 μm has been used as an optical sensor.

The Workswell FS-SMARTIS and EX-SMARTIS thermal cameras are designed for fire protection for landfills, incinerators, warehouses, as well as a control condition in a foundry ladle and more. These thermal cameras have been designed for use in process automation so that it can autonomously control a smaller process however, its part can also become a part of the control system. Therefore, it has been equipped with a TCP/IP interface (Ethernet 100Mb/sec, RJ-45 which is complemented with digital inputs and analogue outputs (current loop 0-24 ma/12 V).

The measurement scope of the thermal camera ranges from -25 °C to 550 °C, optionally up to 1500 °C. Metrologic accuracy (±2% or ±2°C) and sensitivity (up to 50 mK, i.e. 0.05 °C) have stood as priorities in the thermal camera’s development.
