In the food industry, it’s essential to carefully control the temperature of perishable goods throughout production, transportation, storage, and sales.

Repeated warnings about illnesses due to tainted and improperly cooked foods highlight the need for tighter process control.

Because this almost always involves a human factor, food processors need tools that automate crucial operations in a way that helps minimize human error while holding down costs.

Thermal imaging cameras are such tools.

Using FLIR thermal imaging cameras, you can make automated non-contact temperature measurements in many food processing applications. Analog video outputs can be viewed on video monitors, and digital temperature data, including MPEG4 video outputs, can be routed to a computer via Ethernet.

Especially in the food industry, production engineers and technicians are faced by the demand for higher production output at a constant quality and at lower cost.

The FLIR A-series thermal imaging cameras are the most effective tool available for infrared machine vision, closed loop process control and quality assurance imaging.

The new technology can help businesses to validate and increase product quality and throughput and thereby give a competitive edge and increased profitability.

The FLIR A310 is a fixed mounted thermal imaging camera. It can be used for all types of monitoring in the food industry.

Features incorporated in the FLIR A310 are:

  • Built-in extensive analysis functions
  • Built-in alarm functions
  • Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP compliance
  • Easy sharing of analysis, alarm results to PLC’s.
  • PoE (Power over Ethernet)
  • Digital inputs/outputs
  • Built-in 100Mb Ethernet connection
