Xi 80

Compact spot finder IR camera Xi 80

The newly developed optris Xi 80 combines the benefits of infrared cameras and infrared thermometers.

A full 80x80 thermal image eliminates the hunt for the hot spot and tedious positioning required with single spot temperature sensors. The integrated spot finder function will identify the hottest (or coldest) spot in the image and automatically communicate these measurements without an external PC.

A wide range of optics including the new 80° lens equips the Xi 80 to collect and analyze temperature information over a wide target area. The affordable pricing for this unit makes it a realistic alternative to replace existing spot temperature sensors or for OEM applications.

Important specifications

  • Small sized rugged camera with motorized focus
  • Distance-to-spot-size ratio up to 190:1
  • Autonomous operation with automatic spot finder

Areas of application for the spot finder Xi 80

The Xi 80 is a fusion between a robust, compact pyrometer and an advanced IR camera. The autonomous operation with automatic spot finder function as well as the direct analog output and the affordable price make up a perfect match for the OEM use of the rugged industrial imager.

Thermography software optris PIX Connect included

All IR cameras are delivered with the thermography software optris PIX Connect, which has been developed specifically for the extensive documentation and analysis of thermal images. It allows you to analyse temperature data in real time as well as the remote control of your infrared camera. Furthermore, you can setup individual alarm levels for your process and define visual or acustic alarm signals.

Our thermography software is licence free and can easily be adjusted to your requirements.

All optris infrared cameras are compatible with the Data Acquisition (DAQ) Software Dewesoft X by
