Leuven, Belgium / Novi, MI, USA, 20 October 2015 — Xenics, Europe’s leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the LWIR to the visible realm, demonstrates at the Automotive Testing Expo its newly developed Serval-640 Thermography camera, a small-form-factor, maintenance-free thermal LWIR camera for industrial use. Serval is based on the proven Xenics Gobi-GigE series and targets demanding applications in harsh environments. At Automotive Testing Expo, Xenics exhibits in Booth# 7048.
More and more system integrators are requested to add thermography in their industrial installations. The Serval-640 Thermography camera offers on-board non-contact thermography with an accuracy of +/- 2 °C or +/- 2 % (whichever is the highest). The user can select one temperature range of -20 to 120°C, 50 to 400°C, 300 to 1200°C or 1000 to 2000°C. Key is the complete linearized temperature data output independent of the camera housing temperature.
The P67 protection grade of the Serval camera fulfils a growing demand for rugged and reliable systems for industrial applications without the need for third-party enclosures. Its compact form factor provides front window protection to protect the lens and avoid costly repair or replacement, plus an air purge system of the encapsulated optics to allow permanent use in dust-loaded atmospheres.
Serval is directed at demanding indoor uses, such as in-line process and quality control in harsh and hot industrial environments. With the new Serval-640 Thermography camera you can quickly detect defects in the heating elements in for example the windscreen or car seats. Or to control heat dissipation in a working instrument to optimize its life cycle. In this highly specialized field, system integrators are looking for new solutions in terms of easy and maintenance-free installation as well as long-term stability.
Serval simply offers the best price performance on the market as a truly complete industrial camera.
