Cybersecurity costs businesses a lot of money – and with no measurable monetary income as a result. That leaves executives and board members scratching their heads and wondering: “Why are we spending so much on this? Why do we need to employ expensive professionals to manage and operate cybersecurity?”

 

 

 

Chances are, you’ve heard the expression “drowning in data.” And if you’re in the CPG industry, you’ve seen the proliferation of intelligent devices and data collection on the plant floor – and the quest for more data extending across all functions of your organization.

 

 

 

Authenticity is essential in the food and beverage packaging industry. Food allergies, as well as expired or contaminated foods, can cause serious illness and possibly death, so consumers need to know that the products they’re purchasing are safe.

 

 

 

In a world where plant productivity is everything, a lost time accident is the last thing anyone needs. Such an incident becomes an OSHA recordable event, adding a blemish to a company’s safety record, and leads to unplanned downtime.

 

 

 

In a global business environment characterized by disruption, change and volatility, the digital transformation of industrial operations is much more than a well-established trend.

Featured Product: FLIR A50 and A70 Thermal Cameras Offer Turnkey Solutions for Efficient Data Analysis

When decision makers seek to integrate new hardware into their automation process, they are often looking at a few key areas – the ease of use, price point, features, and the ability to utilize the hardware at multiple points throughout their system. The new A50 and A70 thermal cameras come in three options – Smart, Streaming, and Research & Development to fit the needs of professionals across a variety of industries – from manufacturing to utilities to science.  The new cameras offer improved accuracy of ±2 °C or ±2% temperature measurement, compared to the previous accuracy of ±5 °C, or ±5% temperature measurement. The cameras all include an IP66 rating, along with a small, compact size with higher resolution options compared to previous versions.

Featuring a thermal resolution of 464 x 348 (A50) or 640 x 480 (A70), professionals can deploy the A50 or A70 cameras in a variety of capacities. These include condition monitoring programs to maximize uptime and minimize cost through planned maintenance, or when used in early fire detection applications to safeguard the lives of workers and secure the profitability of the business by protecting materials and assets. With improved temperature measurement accuracy of ±2 °C, professionals can rely on consistent readings over a period of time, or through varying environmental factors, eliminating any guesswork from data analysis.

The IP66 rating for both the A50 and A70 provides protection from dust, oil, and water, making the cameras ideal for tough, industrial environments. This ruggedness is especially helpful when the camera is being moved from one application to the next. Whether the camera is fix-mounted inspecting a production line or when required for bench testing, professionals benefit from its versatility.

A50/70 Smart

Designed for condition monitoring programs to reduce inspection times, improve production efficiency, and increase product reliability, the A50 and A70 Smart cameras introduce “on camera / on edge” smart functionality.
