Viral epidemics like SARS, MERS, swine flu or the current coronavirus / COVID-19 have created a worldwide demand for infrared cameras able to screen for fever conditions in humans.
The Optris PI 1M IR camera, is especially suited to measuring the temperature of metals, as these exhibit a distinctly higher emissivity at the short measurement wavelength of 1μm than at measurements in the previously conventional wavelength range of 8 – 14 μm.
Glass manufacture requires special equipment for non-contact temperature measurement due to its physical properties. In addition to the special infrared thermometers, Optris has on offer an industry-specific, thermal imaging camera Optris PI 450 G7 with 7.9μm filter.
Infrared cameras are essential instruments for the quality control of solar cells. One possibility of testing is the periodical modulated exposition of the solar cells to light (Illuminated Lock-In Thermography). The separation of charge within the solar cell leads to leakage current at defective parts and thus to local hot spots. The hot spots can be detected by the infrared camera.
New compact infrared camera Optris Xi 410
Calibration Source BR400 and Ambient Temperature Referencing Source BR20AR
Optris, a global leader in infrared camera technologies – has announced an addition to the Compact Line, the Xi 80, and Xi 400, now with new industrial accessories for use in rough conditions.
Temperature measurement in processes where lasers are used, provides major challenges for infrared measurement technology.
The coronavirus and other diseases are highly infectious and transferred by sick people or contaminated objects. Globally, aircraft are one way that this virus is quickly exported worldwide. China, the epicenter of the 2019/20 coronavirus outbreak, has more than 200 airports, making it an international challenge to detect and prevent sick people flying and reaching and transmitting the virus to unaffected areas and countries.
