NEW Thermal Traffic Sensor for V2X Communication

FLIR ThermiCam V2X Thermal Sensor

FLIR ThermiCam V2X thermal traffic sensorWILSONVILLE, OR, USA. –(BUSINESS WIRE)– FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) has announced the launch of the FLIR ThermiCam™ V2X, a thermal traffic sensor for the emerging vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology market.

The FLIR ThermiCam™ V2X-enabled traffic sensor for urban traffic will allow vehicles and traffic infrastructure to communicate and share data in a system that aims to improve motorist, pedestrian, and bicyclist safety and efficiency.

V2X technology is an emerging crash avoidance system that relies on the communication of information between nearby vehicles and traffic infrastructure to warn drivers about potentially dangerous situations. In a V2X system, both the vehicles and infrastructure have communication units installed to transmit information. Read more NEW Thermal Traffic Sensor for V2X Communication

Hydrogen Leak Detection Technology Prevents Power Outages

With FLIR SYSTEMS’ GF343 OGI

FLIR GF343 OGI cameraMeer, Belgium — FLIR Systems has published a technical note that describes how its GF343 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera is helping utility companies using hydrogen-cooled generators avoid costly power outages.

The operation of an electric power generator produces large amounts of heat that must be removed to maintain efficiency.

Depending on the rated capacity of the generator, it might be air cooled, hydrogen cooled, water cooled, or in the largest capacity generators, a combination of water for the stator windings and hydrogen for the rotor. Hydrogen cooling offers excellent efficiency thanks to low density, high specific heat and thermal conductivity. Read more Hydrogen Leak Detection Technology Prevents Power Outages

Safe Detection of Carbon Monoxide Leaks

With a FLIR OGI Infrared Camera

FLIR GF346 OGI CameraMeer, Belgium — FLIR Systems Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera technology enables its users to see some chemical gases that are invisible to the naked eye.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the incomplete combustion of carbon-based fuels. It’s most often used in the production of bulk chemicals and steel manufacturing.

Vent stacks and pipe leaks that allow CO to escape can be dangerous, especially if the gas is allowed to collect in an enclosed area.

The FLIR GF346 is a revolutionary optical gas imaging camera capable of finding carbon monoxide and a number of other gases.

The FLIR GF346 is unbeatable for detecting even the smallest leaks. Read more Safe Detection of Carbon Monoxide Leaks
