Serval - Reliable Thermal Camera

Serval fulfils a growing demand for ruggedized and reliable thermal cameras for industrial imaging applications without the need for third-party enclosures.

The Serval thermal camera is 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.

As a specific advantage compared to existing similar solutions, the new Xenics Serval offers a variety of configurations with a specific athermalized fixed lens and optional cooling on its housing, all combined with a very small form factor. The camera comes with an IP67 protection grade enclosure such that no large third-party enclosure is needed anymore when adding thermal imaging installation to given machine vision applications.
