Exx series Maintenance personnel in plastics facilities are among the potential users of these thermal imaging cameras from Flir. They can be used to detect anomalous heat spots in machinery, such as an overheated bearing that could need lubrication or replacement, or a failing electrical connector on a motor system. Exx-Series cameras also are appropriate for general facility maintenance, such as identifying an overheated breaker on a breaker panel or issues with HVAC systems. Applications specific to the plastics industry include verifying the temperature of injection molds or inspecting the cooling process of a molded part for quality-control purposes.
What’s new? Four additional models: the E96, E86, E76 and E54. The E96, E86 and E76 models include the company’s UltraMax high-definition image-enhancement technology and improved contrast. The cameras’ interchangeable lenses provide complete coverage of near and far targets. A built-in laser distance meter offers the crisp focus needed for accurate temperature measurement. Additionally, the Flir Inspection Route feature is now standard on every camera in the series; it is complemented by the Flir Thermal Studio Pro software with the Route Creator plugin, which is sold separately. Together, they let users create and export custom inspection routes, which are ideal for large or multi-location projects.
Benefits Vibrant, easy-to-read images and more-efficient inspections via the new routing tools. The cameras also provide improved measurement results over greater distances, allowing users to safely diagnose electrical faults or locate high-temperature anomalies.
