What Are the Main Benefits of IMAGEPro Advanced Thermal Imaging Software?

In industrial applications, typically non-contact pyrometers (spot temperature measurement devices), linescanners (profile line temperature measurement devices) or thermal imagers (image temperature measurement devices) are used to quickly and accurately measure and capture temperatures.

Modern instruments provide the temperature reading signal, not only via an analog output (e.g., 0/4 … 20 mA) but also via a digital interface (e.g., industrial ethernet), providing full connectivity for the INDUSTRY 4.0 world or IoT (Internet of Things).

While pyrometers give a single temperature, e.g., at a measuring rate of 1 kHz, the temperature value is monitored and captured as a single value over the time T (t). To monitor and capture a profile line from an IR-line-scanner, all overlapping pixels of a line (e.g., 1,000) will be monitored and captured over the time T (t, X(line)). And thermal imagers measure the temperature at each camera pixel T (t, X, Y(image)).

AMETEK Land provides innovative software packages for the configuration of these devices, monitoring and capturing data and controlling processes via digital and analog interfacing and I/O modules.

Key software packages include:

  • SPOTPro (SPOTViewer) – Advanced Pyrometer Software
  • WCA (Windows Control and Analyse) – Advanced Linescanner Software
  • IMAGEPro (IMAGEViewer) – Advanced Thermal Imaging Software

Focusing on IMAGEPro advanced image processing software, it facilitates the controlling, monitoring, analysing, and capturing of imager data.

IMAGEPro is a Windows PC software system that enables the configuration of the imager, display properties and advanced temperature analysis options and supports multiple simultaneous imagers. Free 30-day trial available for extensive testing.

Able to monitor and control up to sixteen imagers, IMAGEPro offers real-time analysis for thermal imager ranges. Giving users exceptionally detailed control over their thermal imaging measurements, IMAGEPro enhances application processing.

Typically, only portable thermal imagers provide an integrated display to monitor the actual thermal image and to operate and configure the camera. Industrial stationary cameras are installed in the field on-site in different applications and mostly integrated into protection and cooling enclosures.

These imagers are connected by industrial ethernet, handling a variety of protocols, e.g., Modbus/TCP and are fully remotely controlled and monitored. The IMAGEPro software monitors the actual thermal image of the camera and provides a huge range of monitoring, capturing and I/O-options to easily integrate thermal imaging cameras and systems into new and existing industrial processes.

IMAGEPro is the main interface between the thermal imaging cameras installed in the process, the user, and the process- and plant control system. It is the heart of a thermal imaging system.

Key benefits of IMAGEPro are:

  • EXTENSIVE FUNCTIONALITY - extensive control and analytical functions for exceptional process control, including multiple free defined ROIs (regions of interest).
  • FLEXIBLE COMMUNICATIONS - enables the exchange of information using a simple cross-platform Modbus TCP protocol, analogue signals, or alarm output via I/O modules.
  • REAL-TIME RESULTS & ANALYSIS - powerful image processing allows for real-time monitoring and analysis of the thermal information provided by up to 16 imagers.
  • FLEXIBLE INTERFACE LAYOUT - allows complex configuration and arrangement of windows by the user across multiple monitors, which can be stored and reopened on request and open automatically on restart.
  • ADJUSTABLE WINDOWS - can be docked, re-sized and made floatable to suit specific needs and stored/loaded in/from a full configuration.
  • TOOLS & DISPLAY - can be displayed and hidden as needed to maximise screen space.
  • USER LEVELS - ensures only those with password access can change the system configuration.
