Optris – Non-contact temperature measurement for industry and R&D


he Optris range of Infrared Thermal Imaging Cameras are designed to bring the benefits of this developing technology to a wider range of applications and are

supplied by Process Parameters Ltd in the UK. By utilising thermal imaging in your application, it is possible to learn more about your process in a shorter time than ever before. Improve the quality of a manufactured product; reduce cycle times of machines or reduce your energy usage. The compact, robust design makes the cameras just as suitable for continuous process measurement and quality control as they are for R&D applications.

Optris also offer an extensive range of infrared thermometers and pyrometers for spot measurements which are particularly well suited for precise temperature monitoring of industrial manufacturing processes, research and development, and function checks of a diverse range of devices and systems. The range consists of compact, small, low cost infrared thermometers through to the high-performance series which are highly accurate infrared thermometers with laser aiming.

Contact the team at Process Parameters for further information on the Optris

range and for a potential demonstration. Optris are exhibiting at The Advanced Engineering Show, stand K42. Optris  01628 778688 
