Optris's infrared cameras are claimed to be the only cameras in the market to feature USB connection for easy handling. Acting as a USB to Ethernet adapter, the USB server now makes it possible to bridge distances significantly longer than 20m between the PC and a PI series thermal imaging camera. Dr-Ing. Ulrich Kienitz, Optris GmbH's general manager, says: "With this product we offer a reliable industrial solution, giving our customers even greater flexibility in using our USB cameras."
The USB server Industry Isochron is a joint development of Optris GmbH and electronics components manufacturer Wiesemann & Theis of Wuppertal, Germany. It has been designed specifically for the optris PI 160, PI 400 and PI 450 infrared cameras. At a rate of up to 100 Mbit/s it can transmit even the high-resolution thermal imagery recorded at 27Hz by the PI-4XX series.
The USB server Industry Isochron also features remote configuration by web-based software. The device is compatible with USB 2.0 and can be powered via PoE or external voltage supply up to 48V DC. It supports the TCP/IP protocols including routing and DNS. It is suitable for automation systems, as the link with the PI camera is automatically restored on every system restart.
