New Exclusive MSX Thermal Imaging Technology
What is MSX?
Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) for easier interpretation of an image – adds visible spectrum definition to IR images by detecting the edges of objects and including that detail in the thermal image. Text becomes clearly visible so that you can read a label or identifier within the IR image. This exclusive function provides extraordinary thermal detail that instantly highlights and orients problem locations and eliminates the need to refer back to a visual image for detail.
London Electrical Solutions uses FLIR thermal imaging cameras to efficiently and accurately diagnose issues and potential dangers that other methods of diagnosis can miss.
Why Thermal Imaging is Heating Up
Making the Invisible Visible
Virtually everything in our world emits infrared radiation. While neither the naked eye nor a digital camera can see the infrared spectrum, you feel its effects all around all the time in the form of heat – from sunlight, electrical equipment, and industrial processes to cold air drafts, ice cubes, and even the nose of a dog.
Infrared cameras can detect and capture thousands of non-contact temperature measurements in real time, transforming them into vivid thermal images that instantly show you where hot and cold spots are.
Key details apparent to the naked eye like numbers, labels, signage, and structural features can get lost in a regular thermal image, often requiring a separate digital photo to reference the location of the temperature issue you’ve found. Thermal imagers of the past have featured ways to blend or insert a portion of a thermal image into a visible light picture. But these modes have only provided a partial solution and typically take extra time to dial in and interpret. They also tend to limit or obscure the thermal view of the scene.
MSX is completely different. Using FLIR’s patented algorithm, MSX extracts the high-contrast highlights from the built-in visible camera’s image and then virtually etches the skeletonised details onto the entire corresponding FLIR infrared image in real time, enhancing the clarity and maintaining the integrity across the whole frame instead of compromising it. The result: totally recognizable thermal video and snapshots integrated with all the texture, depth and definition you need to isolate the problem in one simple picture.
Whether it’s in person, on a smartphone, or delivered in a report, stunning and convincing MSX images give you an extra edge to help you tell a much better story, get a faster yes for repairs, save customers and companies money, and look like a hero in their eyes.
Thermal Imaging for Predictive Maintenance
The most effective tools for predictive maintenance applications, infrared cameras provide the amazing ability to see what other diagnostic instruments miss, helping to keep your electrics operating at peak performance, avoiding expensive equipment failures, improving safety, and preventing loss of capacity.
When every other method fails, thermal imaging can still spot the problem.
