Teledyne FLIR AX8

Combining thermal and visual cameras in a small, affordable package, the AX8 provides continuous temperature monitoring and alarming for uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment. The AX8 provides early detection of temperature-related issues in electrical and mechanical equipment, making it the ideal temperature sensor for continuous condition monitoring and hot spot detection for electrical cabinets, process and manufacturing settings, data centers, mass transit facilities, energy generation plants, and storage facilities.

Teledyne FLIR AX8 Features

​Automatic Analysis and Alarms

With its streaming video output, the AX8 not only gives you live video of every installation, but it also provides automated alarming when pre-set temperature thresholds are exceeded as well as temperature trend analysis.

​Industrial Protocol

Since Teledyne ​FLIR AX8 is Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP compliant analysis and alarm results can easily be shared to a PLC. Digital inputs/outputs are available for alarms and control of external equipment. An image masking function allows you to select only the relevant part of the image for your analysis.

​Compact and Easy to Install

Combining thermal and visual cameras in a small, affordable package, the AX8 measures only 54 x 25 x 95 mm, making it easy to install in space-constrained areas for uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment.

​Multiple Video Options

With AX8, you can view its thermal imagery, visible light imagery, or the two combined into FLIR’s proprietary, patent pending MSX multispectral dynamic imaging. MSX provides image detail from the visible camera embossed on the thermal image, giving you, sharper edge detail, the ability to read labels and better contextual awareness.
