The PI200/PI230 thermal imaging cameras are now obsolete and no longer available. Our new Xi series of cameras are ideal alternatives. If you need assistance with camera selection please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Optris PI200 & Optris PI230 infrared cameras take thermal imaging to the next level with the addition of a full-colour visual camera alongside the infrared camera in the same compact camera body.
The two images can be viewed on the screen either separately or overlaid with the infrared image on top of the visual. More importantly, the infrared image can be configured to be transparent so that the identification of the components below is much easier.
Extremely high recording frame rates are maintained with up to 128Hz for the infrared image. The Optris PI230 offers a narrower field of view for the visual camera.
Applications are varied but include very complex applications such as highly populated PCB boards where identification of problem components is difficult on a pure infrared image.
We offer a variety of lenses for close, standard and long distances. Use the Optris Optics Calculator to help choose the right lens for your Optris PI200 camera based on the distance you wish to measure from, and the associated measurement field sizes:
HFOV (Horizontal Field of View): Horizontal dimension of the total measuring field at object level.
VFOV (Vertical Field of View): Vertical dimension of the total measuring field at object level.
DFOV (Diagonal Field of View): Diagonal dimension of the total measuring field at object level.
IFOV (Instantaneous Field of View): Dimensional size of a single pixel at object level
MFOV (Measured Field of View): Smallest measured object size based on a 3×3 pixel arrangement.
Areas of application for the thermal imager Optris PI 200
The Optris PI 200 is employed in a variety of different branches:
- Automotive industry: thermographic images of exterior parts in pre-production runs help maintaining constant temperatures and thus reduce shortages in production.
- Plastics industry: temperature control with thermographic cameras is indispensable for ensuring the best quality of injection moulding parts.
- Photovoltaic and semiconductor industries: the complete thermographic image of a solar module or an equipped circuit board quickly uncovers defects by means of so-called hotspot detection.
