Optris PI 05M Infrared Camera for Molten Metal Industry
Optris P1 05M infrared camera for the metal industry up to 2450 °C. The spectral range of 500 to 540 nm of the newly developed thermal imaging camera decreases measurement errors resulting from unknown or changing emissivities.
Due to the spectral range and the continuous measurement range from 900 to 2450 °C, the compact infrared camera is perfectly suited for temperature measurements of molten metals and metallic surfaces. The frame rate of 1 kHz as well as the high optical resolution enables an optimal adaption to the respective application.
The thermal camera’s high-performance sensor electronics enable a short reaction time of just 1 ms for displaying temperature measurements from every pixel.
The Optris PI 05M shortest wavelength camera is an evolution of our short wavelength PI 1M camera with a shorter wavelength sensitivity of 500nm.

Additional Information & Software for the Thermal Imager Optris PI 05M
As with all the Optris PI cameras, the PI 05M laser sensor for molten metal comes with our PI Connect software package giving you quick and easy access to all the features of your camera, as well as an SDK option.
The infrared cameras and pyrometers from Optris can now also be operated easily from a smartphone or tablet using the IRmobile App for Android in the Google Play Store.
Areas of Application
The Optris PI 05M short-wave thermal imaging camera is ideal for high temperatures and laser processing applications as radiation above 540 nm is well-blocked.
The probability of the spectral range of 500 nm being affected by surrounding stimuli is low, ensuring an exact measurement even when challenged by shifting emissivity. Therefore the thermal imager is perfectly suited for measuring the temperature of molten metals.

FAQs about Infrared Sensors for Molten Metal
What is an Infrared Camera?
An infrared camera, also known as a thermal camera or thermal imaging camera, is a device that detects and captures infrared radiation emitted by objects which is then processed to generate a thermal image. Unlike traditional cameras that rely on visible light, infrared cameras detect the heat energy emitted by objects and create images based on the temperature differences they perceive.
What is a Sensor for Molten Metal?
A sensor for molten metal is a specialised device designed to measure and monitor various parameters in molten metal applications. These sensors are specifically engineered to withstand high temperatures, corrosive environments, and the unique challenges associated with molten metal processes. There are different types of sensors used in molten metal applications, depending on the specific parameters being monitored.
