The new optris PI200 completes the fixed infrared camera series with innovative BI-SPECTRAL® technology.
" The new BI-SPECTRAL technology integrates two camera technologies in one fixed device. The optris PI200 combines a thermal image and, via an additional optical path, a visible image. Both images are displayed in real time, and can be stored for future analysis. says Managing Director Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Kienitz.
The integrated combination of a visible image (VIS) and a thermal image (IR), via a fixed camera, is a milestone in the development of imaging systems for temperature measurement. The optris PI200 finds use in areas where until now only CCD cameras and thermal imaging cameras have been used. Examples of use are in storage shafts, fire detection in open areas, temperature monitoring of bulk goods on conveyors, or thermal monitoring of manufacturing processes.
The optris PI200 thermal imaging camera displays infrared images at up to 96 Hz (frames per second) on 160×120 pixels. Real-time synchronous recording is possible at up to 32 Hz on 640×480 pixels. The free, comprehensive optris PI Connect software offers two image display modes: surveillance mode and fade mode. Surveillance mode makes it easy to locate the measurement point by displaying the two images separately. Fade mode highlights critical temperature zones by superimposing the images.
With a size of just 45 x 45 x 62 mm, the optris PI200 continues the well-established range established by the optris PI160. Advanced interfacing such as the extension of the USB cable up to 10 km (via fiber optics), the camera's process interface (PIF) with analog and digital I/O, as well as software interfacing via DLL, ComPort and LabVIEW, enable system designers to integrate easily into networks and automation systems.
