PASS, a supplier of thermal cameras and accessories, has been named as a FLIR Systems Platinum Partner for the third year running. Operating out of Stockton-on-Tees in north-east England, PASS has been a distributor for FLIR since 2006. In that time, PASS has expanded its FLIR inventory to cater for a wider range of applications, offering thermal cameras for wildlife tracking, law enforcement, automated process monitoring and more.

Thermal cameras can be used for everything from detecting errors with electrical distribution board components to detecting heat loss from poor insulation in buildings.

David Atkins, sales manager and certified level-one infrared thermographer at PASS, said: ‘We’ve seen a real boom in people using thermal cameras for different work in recent years. Building cameras in particular are always growing in popularity, as are cameras for general use. FLIR’s new technology means that the cameras are much more available and affordable to individuals than they have been previously, which has led to more people using FLIR cameras.’

The popularity of thermal-imaging cameras has also led to a rise in demand for training services, something that PASS offers to camera users to help grow their abilities. PASS trains both beginner and experienced thermal camera users in how to operate the equipment. Candidates can learn the basics of thermography and practical uses and can gain full accreditations such as level-one thermography (ISO18436 PCN). Candidates are shown examples of thermal-imaging cameras during the training, including FLIR products such as the E series.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
