Temperature monitoring of drive batteries during handling and transport
A high-resolution thermal imaging camera, thermoIMAGER TIM QVGA from Micro-Epsilon, monitors the thermal properties of the drive batteries either during unstacking or on a conveyor belt. For this measurement task, the camera is mounted stationary or guided to the measuring point by a robot arm. With a single, non contact measurement, it detects the temperature profile of the entire battery surface. The individual measurement is sufficient to reliably identify possible hot spots and defects on the battery. Thanks to a frame rate of 80 Hz, short cycle times and high throughput can be achieved.
