The FLIR AX8 camera/sensor provides an affordable and accurate temperature measurement solution for anyone who needs to solve problems that need built in “smartness” such as analysis, alarm functionality, and autonomous communication using standard protocols. The AX8 also has all the necessary features and functions to build distributed single- or multi-camera solutions utilizing standard Ethernet hardware and software protocols.

The AX8 also has built-in support to connect to industrial control equipment such as PLCs, and allows the sharing of analysis and alarm results and simple control using the Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP field bus protocols.
