The Acoustic Thermal Imager SONASCREEN® IR combines the well-known features of the acoustic camera with a thermal imaging mode. It makes the most diverse sound sources audible and visible with an added thermal image for identifying damages or faults.
The Acoustic Thermal Imager SONASCREEN®IR localizes sound sources using beamforming. It visualizes complex acoustic information in color in real time. The camera provides acoustic feedback via industrial headphones making ultrasound audible and visible. The device enables users to track operating conditions over time during regular inspections of the systems and quickly identify deviating measured values in order to initiate further investigations. This means users can detect weak points or damages at the earliest stage. Preventive maintenance with SONASCREEN®IR is the most reliable and efficient way to prevent unplanned downtime as it helps to extend the life of critical assets and improve the equipment performance.
The Acoustic Thermal Imager can help you detect and distinguish corona, tracking and arcing stages. It can be used for high, medium and low voltage applications, to test open or closed electrical systems, and to test control cabinets, switch boxes, relays, transformers, insulators, and more. The device is designed to detect partial discharges in the ultrasonic range at the earliest stage. With SONASCREEN®IR, it is easy to ensure the reliability and safety of equipment and recognize typical characteristics of partial discharges in the spectrogram. Users can display multiple partial discharges in one image. The acoustic camera comes with a free software for evaluation of electrical partial discharges and report generation in EXCEL and PDF formats.
The device ensures fast detection of sound sources in the audible and ultrasonic range (from 20 kHz to 100 kHz) even over long distances. There is a wide frequency range up to 100 kHz allowing detection of ultrasonic sources above typical industrial noise (typically up to 50 – 60 kHz). Fast moving sound sources like leakages at robots due to a high resolution of 100 fps and global shutter function of the camera can be detected.
The SONASCREEN® devices are helping you to save energy costs and is your optimal companion to reduce your CO2 emissions and support you in energy audits. It enables them to visualize leakages in a spectrogram, adjust bandpass filter and dynamic range, display multiple leakages in one image and filter out interfering sound or ultrasound in industrial environments. All this makes SONASCREEN®IR a brilliant device to support users in their energy audits. A free software for leakage loss assessment and report generation in EXCEL and PDF formats comes with the device and helps users to have all results in one place. SONASCREEN®IR helps to reduce the cost of electricity for compressed air to compensate for the exorbitant increase in electricity prices. An investment in this solution will pay for itself in a very short time and help you reduce your production costs in the long term.
