VIPER IMAGING UNVEILS NEW PRODUCT OFFERING SIMPLIFIED THERMAL MONITORING
Viper Imaging is pleased to introduce the new Viper Predator system. In response to a need for an uncomplicated approach to industrial hot spot detection, Viper Imaging designed a powerful, yet simple out-of-the-box solution. Utilizing thermal imaging technology, the Viper Predator system continuously monitors temperature. Suited for multiple types of industrial applications, the Predator identifies hot spots before anomalies cause problems.
When asked why it is important to monitor for hot spots, Viper co-owner Rich Shannon answered, “Hot spots are an indication of a problem area.” He cites an example commonly found in electrical connections, “A load on the circuit combined with a poor connection will cause arcing, creating a hot spot. Proactive identification allows for planned corrective action, as opposed to production downtime and unplanned maintenance – not to mention potentially dangerous situations.” While undetectable to the naked eye, these issues are clearly visible with thermal imaging. The Predator identifies these warning signs of impending failure and will alarm, notifying users of a problem before it shuts down the line or a machine.
The Viper Predator includes three main components: a thermal imaging camera, ViperVenom industrial camera housing and Viper’s proprietary software, ViperVision. The Predator makes it easy to monitor processes and critical assets using thermal technology. Viper co-owner Andy Beck states, “Our system comes fully documented with a quick-start guide to get you up and running quickly.” All mounting hardware, cables and accessories needed for installation are included in the box.
A complete Predator system is available starting at $9,990. Additional options include non-standard accessories, extended warranty and an annual service contract. Contact us, or visit www.viperimaging.com/viper-predator for more details.
Beck explains, “From the beginning of Viper, we wanted to create solutions that are focused on specific industrial applications. We work with the customer to understand their application process and environment. Bringing products and systems to customers that meet their needs is instrumental to our success as an organization.” Beck and Shannon have worked tirelessly to make their company uniquely skilled in creating custom applications for extreme (and often severe) industrial environments while simplifying the acquisition and implementation of these systems, and the Predator is a great example of this.
