    The Serval-640-GigE LWIR Thermal Imaging camera fulfils a growing demand for ruggedized and reliable thermal cameras for industrial imaging applications without the need for third-party enclosures.

    The Serval 640 GigE Thermography is a LWIR camera is able to measure temperatures and can be used, with a minimum of maintenance, in extreme environments. This variation has 4 standard on-board calibration ranges. Xenics offers calibrations (only with selected lenses) from:

    • -20°C to 120°C
    • 50°C to 400°C
    • 300°C to 1200°C*
    • 1000°C to 2000°C*

    *Using ND filter. A calibration with ND filter cannot be combined with another calibration without ND filter

    This allows you to measure temperatures from -20°C to 2000°C. 

    The Serval thermal cameras are directed at demanding indoor uses, such as in-line process and quality control in harsh and hot industrial environments. In this highly specialized field, system integrators are looking for new solutions in terms of easy and maintenance-free installations as well as long-term stability.

    This thermal infrared camera is designed for long-term stable and reliable operation under difficult ambient conditions. Its compact form factor provides front window protection with air purge to avoid costly repair or replacement of the lens; and to allow permanent use in dust-loaded atmospheres.
