Overview

The Mikron® MCS640 thermal imagers measure temperatures between 600 and 3000°C with minimal interference from temperature reflections. It's streamlined design, makes it easy to integrate MCS640 thermal imagers into compact production machines. And solid and robust housing provide reliability in harsh industrial environments.

The MCS640 series offers standard and HD versions. The MCS640-HD can be paired with an optional water-cooled enclosure for additional protection in harsh industrial environments where ambient temperatures exceed 50°C.
