USB Thermal Imaging Cameras for Industrial and R&D applications.

Optris’ infrared cameras are fully radiometric stationary thermographic systems with an excellent price-performance ratio. The thermographic camera is connected to a PC via USB and they are immediately ready to be used. Temperature data is displayed through the license-free analysis software.

Just recently, Optris have introduced a new low cost thermal heat camera in the Xi range. The Xi series is a fusion of a rugged, compact pyrometer and a modern small thermal camera. Thanks to analogue and digital outputs as well as the option to process up to nine freely definable measuring areas using an external process interface, the Xi camera is perfectly suited for OEM applications.

General advantages of both USB thermal imaging cameras

Automatic hot spot detection

Objects can be examined thermally and hot or cold spots can be found automatically to reveal weak spots of the process.

Fast temperature measurements

With Optris PI thermal imagers, temperature distributions on surfaces can be captured precisely within a millisecond interval.

Extensive software with line scan mode

The accompanying software Optris PIX Connect helps you with comprehensive temperature data analysis and documentation. Furthermore, the software contains a line scan mode which is generally used for processes with moving objects under test.

Easy process integration

Advanced interface concepts allow the integration within networks and automated systems:

  • USB cable extension up to 100 m over Ethernet or up to 10 km over fibre
  • Process interface (PIF) on the ir camera as analogue input/output (0 – 10 V) and digital input (low- und high-Level)
  • Software interface via Dynamic-Link-Library (DLL) and ComPort

Infrared camera

optris PI 160

The small USB thermal imaging camera optris PI 160 is the basic model of the award-winning optris PI series.

More info

It allows for exact measurements from an object size of 1.5 mm on and is, due to its measurement speed of 120 Hz, perfectly suited for employment in research and development, test stations, and process automation as well as for portable measurement tasks. With a suitable adaptor, you could use this as a handheld thermal imaging camera if required.

The thermographic imaging camera standard version offers a temperature range from -20°C up to 900°C, which can be optionally expanded to 1500°C. It is available with four alternative optics and the software optris PIX Connect offers video and snapshot recordings, extensive analyses (offline, online) and is equipped with an integrated line scan camera function.

Important specifications

  • Temperature range: -20 °C to 900 °C
