Mikron MCS640 Thermal Imagers

Short Wavelength Thermal Imagers for Temperature Measurement between 600 and 3000°C

Advanced Energy's Mikron MCS640 series offers short wavelength infrared (SWIR) thermal imagers with internal digital signal processing. The imagers are suitable for graphite, ceramics, and metallic-surface applications.

  • Uncooled, fully radiometric detector (UFPA)
  • Spectral range: NIR (short wavelength), customer specific adaptation on request
  • Display of temperature at 307.200 measurement points (640 x 480 pixel)

Overview

The Mikron MCS640 thermal imagers measure temperatures between 600 and 3000°C with minimal interference from temperature reflections on objects. With streamlined design, easily integrate MCS640 thermal imagers into compact production machines. 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.
