Thermal Imaging Camera for Continuous Condition and Safety Monitoring


FLIR AX8 combines thermal imaging with a visual cameras in one small, affordable package for continuous temperature monitoring and alarming. The AX8 helps you guard against unplanned outages, service interruptions, and failure of electrical or mechanical equipment. Compact and easy to install, the AX8 provides continuous monitoring of electrical cabinets, process and manufacturing areas, data centers, energy generation and distribution, transportation and mass transit, storage facilities and refrigeration warehouses.
