Micro-Epsilon has introduced new thermoIMAGER TIM M1 thermal imaging camera for hot metal applications. Compact, short-wave and highly dynamic are the three key attributes that describe this infrared camera. Numerous advantages include its compact design, a USB interface and the license-free TIMConnect software supplied as standard. The camera’s unique selling points comprise a continuous temperature measuring range of 450°C to 1,800°C, image frequency of up to 1 kHz and different resolution/image frequency modes. Compared to other thermal imaging cameras in its class, the entire temperature measuring range can be used without any sub-ranges. Therefore, in many applications there is no need for any measuring range switchovers and the camera is therefore much more flexible. thermoIMAGER TIM M1 is specifically designed for measurements on hot metals, graphite or ceramics. This is why it is primarily used in the metal processing industry, e.g. for temperature monitoring of hardening and forming processes for hot metals.
