The WeldWatch Video Monitoring System is a complete solution for your weld monitoring and viewing needs. It now includes a family of cameras controlled either by proprietary WeldWatch software or that operate without a computer. Seven system models are available to meet specific customer requirements:
- ultra-dynamic range that shows the arc and surroundings
- infrared camera to view the arc through smoke
- compact packaging for tight spaces
- standalone analog versions (no computer needed)
The non-infrared cameras incorporate Ultra Dynamic Range technology that is specially designed for live views of arc welding. The infrared camera includes hardware to provide similar images capturing both the arc and its surroundings. The WeldWatch software is tightly integrated with the camera providing close control to get the maximum performance from the hardware. The software performs extensive image processing in real-time, as well as digital recording and playback of weld video and still images.
WeldWatch Video Monitoring system benefits:
- See the arc, electrode, puddle and joint before, during and after the weld
- Observe welds through smoke using the IR camera option
- View and record industrial weld processes for real-time monitoring and quality control
- Record and review welds in the lab or in welder training
