Optris PI1M Thermal Imaging Camera

The New Optris PI 1M short wavelength and ultra compact thermal imaging camera has been specifically designed for non-contact temperature measurement of metallic surfaces, graphite or ceramics. Metals exhibit a distinctly higher emissivity at the short measurement wavelength of 1μm than at measurements in the standard wavelength range of 8-14 μm.  With a spectral range of 0.92 – 1.1 μm, the Optris PI 1M is ideal for the likes of metal tempering and forming processes.

In parallel with the visualization of a thermal process, the high-performance sensor electronics allow a short reaction time of 1ms for the displaying of the temperature information of the center pixel.

What are the Areas of application for the thermal Imager optris PI 1M?

The ultra-compact infrared camera optris PI 1M is due to its short wavelength ideally suited for non-contact temperature measurements of metallic surfaces. Thus, it finds use for example in metal tempering and forming processes.
