Thermal imaging technique is an advanced technology for diagnosing the hot spots in substations, transmission lines and distribution network, which plays a key role in finding, preventing and handling the accident in power industry. Infrared technology gives us the ability to "see" and measure temperatures on defective components and the normal wear, chemical contamination, corrosion, fatigue and faulty assembly in many electrical systems. It helps quickly locate hot spots, determine the severity of the problem, and help establish the time frame in which the equipment should be repaired. Infrared thermal imaging detectors and modules by Global Sensor Technology can be integrated into handheld infrared cameras, stationary infrared systems, UAVs, robots etc. for inspection and maintenance for power industry.
Machine vision carries out measurement and makes judgment instead of human eyes. Infrared thermal imaging detectors and modules by Global Sensor Technology enables machine "see" the invisible and carry out non-contact temperature measurement accurately, fearless of smoke, dust, glare, back-lighting etc. It can be applied in process instruction, packing, sorting, moisture detection, contamination monitoring, impurity checking or abnormal temperature measurement. It can also be used for measuring the heating/lighting efficiency, material thickness, material density and monitoring aging test process.
If the building has design defects, such as unqualified insulation, hollowing, moisture and so on, usually we cannot detect them by naked eyes. The infrared thermal imaging technology could identify the safety of the building from the temperature distribution of surface. It could also be used in detecting defective insulation, electrical failure, water seepage, pipeline transportation, worm erosion, mold and so on.
Thermal imaging technology has a broad application prospects in petrochemical & metallurgy industry, which can be widely used in various inspections: steel ladles, blast furnaces, converters, rotary kilns, and key channels etc. Inspection tools integrated with infrared thermal imaging detectors or modules help not only with the difficult diagnostic challenges but also with day-to-day predictive maintenance operations. They are the most effective and direct tools to meet and exceed the most stringent monitoring and inspection requirements.
Infrared thermal imaging technology features in real time, accurate and non-destructive measurement. It enables condition monitoring and defect diagnosis when the equipment is still running in operation. It helps quickly locate hot spots, determine the severity of the problem, and helps establish the time frame in which the equipment should be repaired, which will greatly avoid the risk of sudden equipment failure. Infrared thermal imaging technology plays important role in rail transport routine inspection, production line equipment routine inspection etc.
Infrared thermal imaging detectors or modules can be integrated in fever sensing systems for screening out those people with elevated body temperature, which indicates possible presence of the fatal virus, like SARS, Zika Virus, COVID-19 etc.
Infrared fever sensing system has the advantage of non-contact, accurate temperature measurement on the moving crowds. It greatly increases the efficiency of inspection and thus is ideal for epidemic prevention in public places such as airports, stations, factories, schools, and commercial centers.
The tiny TIMO module by Global Sensor System can be easily inserted into smart devices such as mobile phone, attendance machine etc. to make it more intelligent with body temperature measurement function.
Painful diseases often show a significant body temperature difference in the lesion region, such as acute/chronic shoulder and neck pain, cervical spondylopathy, lumbar spondylosis, myofascial pain syndrome, etc. Infrared thermal imaging technology has its unique diagnostic value by presenting the thermal image of human body indicating temperature distribution. It provides important reference information for disease diagnosis and health evaluation.
