Integration of Optris thermal imaging cameras in automated processes

The newly developed Industrial Process Interface (PIF)  permits automatic process monitoring,  providing continuous in-operation control of  the Optris PI infrared camera hardware with all cable connections,  and the free Optris PI Connect software. The PIF allows fail-safe monitoring of all the Optris PI range of cameras, except the PI200/PI230,  with a connected PLC.


3 analog/ alarm outputs, 2 analogue inputs, 1 digital input, 3 alarm relays
500 V ACRMS isolation voltage between camera and process
Separate fail-safe relay output
PI hardware including all cable connections and PI Connect software are permanently observed during operation
