Fever screening systems - when temperatures matters

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. 

Ultra Compact Infrared Camera for the Metal Industry

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.

Compact IR Camera for Glass Manufacturing

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.

Quality control of solar cell modules

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.
