Optris Xi 410 Industrial Spot Finding Ethernet Infrared Thermal Camera
The newly developed Optris Xi 410 Thermal Imaging Camera combines the benefits of a robust, compact pyrometer and an advanced Infrared Camera for the first time giving you more information and control about your process than any other temperature sensor. Process optimisation is made easier leading to production cost savings.
The Optris Xi410 has a fast Ethernet interface and can be powered by Power-Over-Ethernet, allowing extremely simple installation even if there is a large distance between the camera and the PC.
An innovative, unique function of the Xi410 is that should a fault occur in the system, for example if the network connection is interrupted or the computer crashes, the camera automatically switches to autonomous operation. This mode ensures continuous measurement and alarming, therefore maintaining the security and reliability of the operation. Due to this feature, the Xi410 is ideally suited to safety critical applications such as fire detection, monitoring of faults in industrial machinery and equipment such as motors and conveyors.
When using the fast Ethernet interface, the Xi 410 has a video recording frame of 25 Hz which allows for the monitoring and control of high-speed thermal processes. It even includes a line-scanning function for continuous processes such as paper, films or carpets.
The resolution of the camera is 384 x 240 pixels and is so compact it can easily fit into the palm of your hand, and comes with a mounting nut and bracket. The Xi 410 is also supplied with the new free Optris PIX Connect software, which has the same features as the former PI Connect, along with some new features which make integration with your system extremely simple.
The Xi 410 covers the temperature range -20 °C to 900 °C and comes with a choice of optics including the new 80° lens for wide target areas. There is also a handy motorised focus to ensure that no matter where the camera is fixed, a pin-sharp image can be achieved with ease.
As standard, the Xi 410 features direct inputs and outputs for use with external equipment. By default one analogue output (4-20mA) and one input (either digital or analogue) is available through the cable provided. A process interface provides three analogue or alarm outputs and three analogue or digital inputs to aid integration with PLCs, controllers and data loggers.
Very attractively priced, this unit is perfect for OEM applications and for spot temperature sensor replacements.
What are the areas of application for the Optris Xi 410?
The integrated spot finder function identifies the hottest (or coldest) spot in the image and automatically communicates these measurements without an external PC. The Xi 410 Industrial Imager is versatile and perfectly suited for a multitude of measuring tasks, e.g. mechanical engineering or multi-sensor applications. Autonomous operation brings thermal imaging to a much wider range of applications and the Xi series will be attractive to machine builders and end users alike.
