Intelligent designing of thermography applications

The IRSX thermography camera is the first intelligent, self-contained thermal imaging system that has been consistently developed for industrial use.

After the one-time setup, the system works as a stand-alone solution and communicates directly with process control. Ideal conditions for Industrie 4.0 applications.

As an all-in-one solution, it contains a calibrated thermal image sensor and a powerful processor with a variety of industrial interfaces in a compact, robust IP67 housing.

The IRSX camera can automatically switch between several inspection tasks and allows the flexible use of production lines with different products.

The camera is available in different versions with different resolutions, frame rates, zoom, microscope and wide angle lenses and as OEM version.

Key features:

    • Stand-alone thermal imaging, easily integrated into industrial processes
    • Integration without programming effort
    • Web-based configuration and visualisation
    • Consistently suitable for industrial use due to robust design, IP67 protection class and industry-standard protocols and interfaces
    • Apps available for numerous applications


    Reduce your system costs, because you no longer need extra computers, special software or external interfaces for your thermal imaging!

    Turnkey solutions

    In addition to various applications such as the monitoring of substations, flame and flare systems or the inspection of electronic components, we offer turnkey solutions for the following applications:

    Body temperature monitoring

    TI FeverScan is a solution for the detection of possible fever patients (e.g. corona-infected) based on high-precision temperature image evaluation (0.1°C accuracy). The access monitoring system with contactless temperature measurement can be quickly installed for use either temporarily in public places or as a stationary fixture in an entrance area. TI FeverScan consists of an intelligent IRSX infrared camera, a temperature reference body and a specially developed app. Further advantages: easy installation, fast measurement process (less than 1 second), mobile use. The result is shown graphically on the screen as a simple red-green display.

    Non-destructive testing (NDT)

    The so-called active thermography is used in many industries for non-destructive component testing. A heat source excites the components thermally and the heat energy flow through the material is reflected in the temperature distribution on the component surface. Abnormal distributions indicate defects such as air inclusions, detachments or microcracks. We offer ready-to-use solutions for

    • Research and development (IRNDT) with modular structure for various materials and different excitation sources
    • Production plants (C-CheckIR sensor) with compact NDT systems, suitable for robots for composite and other materials
    • Maintenance (C-CheckIR) for mobile use on composite materials, primarily in the aviation industry
    • Foamed components (dashboard check), mainly for detecting blowholes, for example in foamed dashboards of cars

    Slag monitoring in steelworks

    In order to meet steel purity requirements, manufacturers must identify and reduce slag in liquid steel as it moves from the oxygen top-blow converter or electric furnace to the ladle. The ideal means for this is thermographic slag detection, which makes use of the fact that the thermal radiation properties of steel and slag in the far infrared range differ significantly at the same temperature. The IRSX cameras are the heart of the turnkey slag detection solution and are designed for continuous operation under the extreme conditions in steel plants.


    Plastic welding

    The WeldCheck system is a complete turnkey solution for in-line monitoring of welding processes with thermoplastics. The temperature of the joining surfaces is of decisive importance during infrared and hot gas welding of plastic parts. Continuous monitoring of this parameter along the entire weld seam is therefore indispensable for quality assurance. The infrared cameras of the WeldCheck system measure the temperature curve of the workpieces directly after the heating process. Based on a specific measurement plan, the values are evaluated and assessed in real time directly after the heating of the components. The WeldCheck system automatically detects actual temperatures not moving within the specified range. All data are stored and permit complete traceability.
