IR camera software
RTools software suite was developed to acquire, radiometrically calibrate, process, analyze, and archive data from advanced digital infrared (IR) imaging systems. The software kit provides users with the ability to process and analyze spatial, temporal, and spectral radiometric data in units of absolute or contrast radiance, irradiance, radiant intensity, and temperature. The accompanying RDac module is a real-time data acquisition program for image capture, viewing, analysis, storage, and radiometric output.

PlantTriage has been upgraded to monitor the performance of control loops directly from any plant historian that supports OPC (OLE for process control) HDA (historical data access). By using the historian's data directly, the performance monitoring system doesn't need to extract real-time data directly from the control system, minimizing potential control system stress.
