The thermal touch camera operate standalone. No PC, no base unit required.
Optionally it can be connected either to our Monitoring Appliance
(or any PC) or the SensorGateway (base unit)
When connected to the Monitoring Appliance
or a PC, the thermal touch camera communicates over USB with the computer. The Monitoring Appliance
is a small Windows Enterprise IoT 10 computer with the ServersCheck Monitoring Software
embedded with special functionality for the camearas. The appliance can connect to a network using a regular RJ45 network cable OR via wifi. The appliance stores all data from the sensors for graphing and trending purposes. The appliance has 3 USB ports and a HDMI port for a screen.
Another option is to connect the thermal camera to a SensorGateway (base unit)
. This makes the camera behave like any regular sensor. The base unit accepts up to 1 thermal touch camera. Using the different connectivity options, the numeric data from the camera can be transmitted to on-premises Network Management Systems (NMS), Building Management Systems (BMS) or Industrial Control Systems (ICS). It can also send data to any cloud platform using JSON push.
