The infrared camera optris PI 160 is employed whenever temperature measurement of areas is required and single-spot measurement ofpyrometers is not sufficient anymore.
Measurement of areas is indispensable in many industries by now: the automotive sector, plastics production, and the solar industry make use of it.
Thus, the IR camera is employed in pre-production runs of automotive exterior parts which require steady surveillance due to a specific temperature range that needs to be ensured. The provided temperature surveillance fundamentally helps reducing shortages in production.
In injection molding processes in the plastics industry, the thermal imager optris PI 160 is employed for temperature measurement during the opening of the casts to perform temperature regulation in possible hotspots or coldspots. In another plastics process, the manufacturing of PET bottles, the injection molding parts are similarly monitored.
The infrared camera detects hotspots during function controls of solar cells, making it indispensable in the solar industry. In the photovoltaic industry, IR cameras provide instant quality control during soldering processes on solar modules.
During function tests of circuit boards, which are installed in virtually every electronic device it ensures permanent monitoring of thermic behavior without influencing the delicate measuring objects. Thus, heating contacts, which point to a defect most of the time, are easily visible.
