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

The range of Optris USB thermal 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 USB thermal camera is perfectly suited for OEM applications.

Below is some further information on the range offered:

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
