MIKRON Thermal Imager

Fixed installation thermal imaging system for high-temperature applications e.g. on metal surfaces. The camera detects temperatures in ranges between 600 and 3000 °C. Moreover, the camera features a 1000 Mbit/s Gigabit Ethernet for data transmission. As an option, the camera can be integrated into an industrial proven enclosure with lens air purge and cooling system:
