New compact imager with auto hotspot finder, ethernet and auto-operation
New compact infrared camera Optris Xi 410
A robust and compact thermal camera with motorized focus, autonomous operation with automatic spot finder, software with exclusive analysis features included, small-sized rugged camera with motorized focus with temperature ranges from -20 °C ... 900 °C and designed for intensive use on industrial sites.
Optris announces the arrival of the new compact infrared Optris Xi 410 camera that combines the benefits of infrared cameras as well as infrared thermometers. “Alongside the usual use of an IR camera with a PC and software, this camera also works fully autonomously as a smart, target-seeking pyrometer with analogue/alarm output,“ says Torsten Czech, Head of Marketing at Optris.
Auto hotspot finder – ideal for automated condition monitoring
The Optris Xi 410 has a fast ethernet interface and can conveniently be powered via PoE. This allows simple installation – even if the distance from the PC is large. The integrated auto hotspot finder function can be used to reliably measure moving objects without having to readjust the camera. If the network connection is disrupted or there is a problem in the connected PC, the camera takes on the job fully autonomously and ensures a thorough, reliable alarm if a problem is detected. This feature makes the Optris Xi 410 ideal for all safety-relevant applications in the fields of preventive fire safety and the condition monitoring of machines and equipment.
As well as the ethernet interface, the Optris Xi 410 also has a USB 2.0 interface for the rapid configuration of important parameters as well as direct 0/4-20 mA analogue output. An external process interface can be used to forward up to 9 freely definable measurement fields as analog outputs (choice of 0/4-20 mA or 0-10 V) or emit these as an alarm via a relay, which is ideal for use in the OEM sector.
Motor focus makes installation and application easier
Like the other two models in the Xi Series, the Optris Xi 410 is also equipped with a motor focus that allows convenient distance focusing via the free software program PIX Connect. The Optris Xi 410's resolution is 382 x 240 pixels with an image frequency of 25 Hz. The Optris Xi 410is calibrated for temperature measurements from -20 to 900 °C. Customers receive a ready-to-use package, including mounting nuts, mounting brackets, software, ethernet and USB connection cable, at a reasonable price.
