Infrared Camera for Temperature Measurement in the Glass Industry
Designed especially for the glass industry, this camera measures in only one spectral range.
Glass exhibits a distinctly higher emissivity in the wavelength of 5.0μm or 7.9μm than at measurements in the longwave range. Therefore, with a spectral range of 7.9 μm, and VGA resolution, the PI640 G7 camera is suitable for a variety of applications in the glass industry, such as flat glass and container glass production.
The typical parameters of Optris cameras, high measurement speed (80 Hz), high optical resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and compact design, were kept to allow for the capturing of real-time thermal images of everything from glass beads right up to large panes.
The infrared camera has a line scanning function which is essential in the production of glass ribbons and glass panes and offers numerous possibilities for controlling and documenting the process.
The small dimensions make the IR camera ideal for mounting in the smallest of spaces whilst they are robust enough for the most arduous of applications.
A similar model with lower resolution is provided by the PI450 G7.

Optris IR Camera PI640 G7 Lens Options
We offer lenses for short and standard distances. Use the Optris Optics Calculator to help choose the right lens for your 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.
