The power of thermal imaging in hazardous locations

Explosive atmospheres should be protected from ignition sources with equipment and protective systems that meet the requirements of the ATEX Product Regulations or similar regulations.

FLIR A310 ex is an ATEX compliant solution, with a thermal imaging camera mounted in an enclosure.

This makes it possible to monitor critical and other valuable assets also in explosive atmospheres. Process monitoring, quality control and fire detection in potentially explosive locations are typical applications for the A310 ex.

The FLIR A310 ex is ATEX certified (Verification Certificate ZELM 12 ATEX 0485 X) and can be installed in classification zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.

The certification comprises the whole system, which includes the enclosure as well as all components inside, such as the thermal imaging camera, heater and integrated controller.

The flame-proof enclosure “d” prevents any explosion transmission from the inside of the enclosure to the outside.

The FLIR A310 ex is IP67 rated making it ideal to install in dusty environments. FLIR A310 ex comes with a heater, which effectively prevents fogging and freezing of the protection window.

The integrated controller features several digital I/O channels and sensors for temperature, humidity and pressure.

Among other functions, the I/O channels enable the user to switch on/off the camera and the heater via remote control. The access is accomplished through an integrated web interface or Modbus TCP/ IP. The integrated controller is equipped with two fibre optic and two Ethernet parts. This enables a flexible network integration in star or ring topologies.

The thermal imaging camera integrated in the FLIR A310 ex is the FLIR A310. The FLIR A310 comes with measurement functions like spot, area and difference temperature measurement. It also has built-in alarm functions.

The camera automatically sends analysis results, IR images and more as an e-mail on schedule or at alarm, acting as an FTP- or SMTP-client.

MPEG-4 streamed video output over Ethernet shows live images on a PC, 640x480 with overlay up to 30 Hz, system dependent.

With a thermal sensitivity of < 50 mK the FLIR A310 captures the finest image details and temperature difference information.
