MIDDLESBROUGH, England, Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CorDEX Instruments Ltd. announced today the launch of its new MN4000 panel mounted thermal imager. Utilising both thermal and visible cameras, along with industry standard Modbus/TCP communications, the MN4000 panel mounted thermal imager is simple to integrate into existing plant systems providing an unprecedented degree of thermal information relating to electrical equipment health all in a small, affordable package.
Aimed at the industrial electrical market, MN4000 is intended to solve the problem associated with infrared inspection of live electrical equipment which could be potentially fatal in the event of electrocution or arc-flash. Easily installed, the MN4000 is retro-fittable into existing CorDEX IR Window apertures and can be removed if needed without exposing personnel or shutting down equipment.
MN4000 is provided with a suite of measurement tools, from its onboard webserver interface with unique, thermal grid alarms, to prewritten PLC Function Block code which ensure trouble-free integration with new or existing PLC networks. Additional CorDEX MONITIR software is also available for small, medium or large scale MN4000 deployments across multiple locations.
With 4800 measurement points per camera, all available via Modbus, MN4000 far surpasses current point measurement tools and provides infrared professionals not only the ability to alarm on a specific point, but also to remotely access the camera at any time, to perform a complete diagnosis in total safety.
Typical MN4000 installations include;
- Motor terminal boxes,
- Low & Medium Voltage Switchgear,
- Low Voltage Switchgear,
- Motor Control Centres,
"Traditional infrared inspection techniques involved installing IR Windows, which cannot provide complete protection for thermographers, into electrical panels leaving the potential for severe injury should an arc-flash occur mid inspection," said Tony Holliday, CorDEX's CEO. "The MN4000 not only removes this risk entirely, but it makes IR inspections even more efficient. With the ability to login remotely, time is not wasted travelling between locations, the inspection and diagnosis can be done right there in the office, all in complete safety."
MN4000 is breaking new ground with cost, functionality and safety rolled into one unique camera. MN4000 will be available for global order and delivery in January 2017. To learn more, please visit www.cord-ex.com/ or contact Helen Bester at +44 1642 454343.
