T-Thermal Monitoring

Thermographic system for condition monitoring of critical infrastructure

T-Thermal Monitoring system is designed for a non-stop monitoring of temperature events and processes that occur on the surface of the observed objects and areas. System can quickly identify temperature anomalies of the observed objects and immediately alerts an operator on it.

How does the system work?

An observed object/area is continuously monitored by thermographic cameras. The video stream (infrared plus visible spectrum) including captured temperature data are continuously transferred from cameras to a central control system, where they are evaluated with a help of intelligent software in real-time.

If the T-Thermal Monitoring system detects undesirable temperature changes of the observed objects (exceeding preset temperature threshold or predefined temperature gradient), it will automatically alert the operator. Early warning can significantly affect operator`s decision. Right controlled intervention can prevent extensive damage or avoid of complete destroying of the observed object.

System description

The system is composed of three basic subsystems:

  1. thermographic / bi-spectrum cameras, which are installed on a site and continuously monitor temperature of observed object
  2. signal and temperature data transferring infrastructure
  3. alarm management system, which records and evaluates temperature data from thermographic cameras in real-time

KEY FEATURES

Real-time temperature monitoring

The control system automatically evaluates the temperature data coming from connected thermographic cameras in real-time. The algorithm of management software is set up to be able to instantly recognize the birth of temperature anomalies in the observed area. When the system identifies some anomalies (exceeding preset temperature threshold or predefined temperature gradient), it immediately notifies the operator on that (temperature alarm).

The current status (normal / alarm) of all measuring channels is continuously displayed on the monitor screen. The operator thus knows at any time exactly where the risk situation just occurred. At the moment of the alert / alarm, the system will automatically display for the operator the live video from the camera by which just triggered the alarm process (infrared plus visible spectrum) as well as the important temperature data related to observed temperature anomalie. All the mentioned information helps the operator to make quick and correct decisions and to choose the optimal form of response to rescue a critical situation.

Monitoring mode is fully automated, so system doesn´t require an operator.

Real-time displaying

The system is still providing for the operator a live video and temperature data from the regions which are observed. So, the operator has still very recent and clear information about the hapening in the monitored area.

Continuous video/data recording

The system allows to perform the continual recordings of video stream and temperature data of observed objects, which provides the thermal camera. The recording capacity depends of the hardware configuration (up to several weeks history).

Analysis of recorded temperature data

The system allows to perform the post-analysis of recorded temperature events and their time course in details. The system offers two independent ways of analysis:

  • visual – replay of thermographic stream as a video (IR spectrum)
  • graphical – time course of temperature for selected temperature points/areas

The post-analysis of the recorded temperature event enable to determine an exact time of its birth and also its time course. The information (knowledge) obtained from the analysis can be used for identifying of the causes of events. These can later be used to design effective preventive measures.

Where can the T-Thermal be used?

T-Thermal Monitoring can be used wherever there is a risk of damage to the equipment due to uncontrolled overheating (equipment failure, control error, human factor, etc.). T-Thermal Monitoring can identify the problem before a dangerous situation occurs.
