Outdoor protective housing for infrared cameras

The NEW Optris Outdoor Protective Housing provides universal protection for Optris PI infrared cameras when used outside. The system comes with an integrated air purge collar and temperature adjustment allowing for 24/7 use. A USB Server Gigabit can also be housed for integration into control systems over large outdoor distances.

 

Temperature measurement technology under rough conditions
The outdoor protective housing has been classified with an IP 66 International protection marking and is made from robust sheet steel. The camera lens is actively protected from external influences by the anti-reflective coated germanium windows and a resilient protective film. Additionally, the outdoor protective housing has been equipped with an air purge collar which continually guards the protective window from dirt particles, thus allowing the infrared cameras to be used in dusty and humid environments.

 

Simple integration into 24/7 monitoring system
The ABUS housing with a PTC heating element turns on at temperatures of under 15° C. This, coupled with the fan unit – which ensures even temperature distribution – guarantees that the infrared camera is always at the perfect operating temperature. This gives the camera a functional range of -40 °C to +30 °C. Via the integrable USB Server Gigabit the online USB cameras can be converted to Ethernet, meaning they can be integrated into a process system over large distances. The dimensions of the housing are 390 x 150 x 112 mm.
