optris Xi spot finder IR camera
Optris introduces its innovations optris Xi 80 and optris Xi 400 at the SPS trade fair. The two temperature measurement devices combine the benefits of infrared cameras and infrared thermometers. “With the Xi series, we are launching a semi-autonomous sensor which, in addition to traditional PC and software-based operation, also works as a smart pyrometer with analog or digital outputs that seeks the target on its own. This opens up new fields of application, e.g. in mechanical engineering or multisensor applications,” explains Dipl.-Ing. Torsten Czech, Head of Product Management at Optris.
World's first: pyrometer with automatic spot finder function for OEM applications
The Xi series is a fusion between a robust, compact pyrometer and an advanced IR camera. The integrated spot finder function enables accurate temperature measurements in moving objects without having to readjust the sensor. Sensor adjustment takes place autonomously, i.e. without having to establish a connection with a PC. In addition to a direct 0/4-20 mA analog output, the devices also offer users digital interfaces such as Ethernet or RS485. An external processing interface permits the further processing of up to 9 freely definable analog outputs, making it ideal for OEM applications.
Motorized focus facilitates installation and use
Both Xi models are equipped with a motorized focus enabling remote focusing via the free PIX Connect software. The sensors come with a resolution of up to 382 x 288 pixels, a frame rate of up to 80 Hz and a measuring spot to distance ratio of up to 390:1. Xi devices are calibrated for temperature measurements within a range from -20 to 900 °C. Customers receive a ready-to-use package including a mounting nut, a mounting bracket, software and a connection cable.
