PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
With over 23 years’ experience within our sector, we have developed a series of customized thermographic systems, based on our bcb Monitor® platform, for many industrial processes, with spectacular results both regarding quality control and applications directly related to production chains.
We are authorized dealers and integrators of FLIR thermal imaging cameras, and experts in innovative solutions for industrial and scientific applications, using data acquisition, machine vision, imaging and AI / ML. We also provide tailor-made training in thermography and its applications, and we actively participate in national and European R & D & i project calls.
bcbMonitor® is a family of products that integrates in a single platform, multiple combinations of thermographic sensors, image management software, and additional elements to build up a complete thermographic monitoring solution adapted to the needs of each particular application. Our bcbMonitor® is used to acquire and process thermographic images from FLIR cameras in real time.
REMOTE MONITORING OF ELECTRICAL SUBSTATIONS
Automatic, continuous and unattended supervision of switching and other operations in electrical substations and in transformation centers, provides great improvements in efficiency and in safety, facilitating maintenance tasks. By means of thermography, the status of circuit breakers and transformer connections can be viewed and evaluated in real time and without any danger to the operator. Infrared thermography is a contactless, safe and reliable tool .
AUTONOMOUS SUPERVISION OF DPCs
One of the many applications of thermography is the uninterrupted autonomous monitoring in Data Processing Centers, detecting anomalous temperature variations in real time and at a distance, thus preventing any risks to the equipment, energy inefficiencies and also allowing the detection of any intrusions.
Thermal information is essential for many applications, such as the production of parts and components in the automotive and electronics sectors. The use of machine vision an thermographic images, in combination with advanced software such as our bcbMonitor®, allows the detection and prevention of production problems (product and process), detecting thermal irregularities. Thermal imaging thus provides valuable information to production specialists and decision-makers in production and maintenance. Radiometric images are, in practice, equivalent to several thousand virtual thermocouples, with the additional advantage that data can be stored and analyzed, improving traceability.
MONITORING OF SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTIONS
Measuring temperatures without contact, remotely and together with communications with an alarm center, using thermal imaging cameras in combination with our bcbMonitor® , help prevent fires by detecting hot spots and spontaneous combustions before ignition occurs, with the establishment of thresholds and / or temperature gradients.
DETECTION OF LEAKS IN INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES
Among the FLIR cameras of the OGI series (Optical Gas Inspection) distributed by bcb, the new GF77a is a great option: uncooled, designed to detect industrial gases such as methane, sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxide, improving inspections and reducing the possibility of obtaining false readings. Thanks to FLIR's patented High Sensitivity Mode (HSM), detection functions are enhanced by accentuating movement to make tiny gas columns more visible to the user. These cameras used in combination with the bcbMonitor® and a Pan-Tilt platform, can perform continuous automatic 360º rounds (sweeps)
