Serval 640 GigE Thermography


Serval 640 GigE Thermography

High resolution IP67 thermography camera

For temperature measurements in the toughest conditions

The Serval 640 GigE Thermography is a LWIR camera in an IP67-rated enclosure. The camera is developed for demanding indoor applications in harsh, hot and dusty environments. The goal was to design a thermal camera able to measure temperatures that can be used, with a minimum of maintenance, in extreme environments. 

The Serval 640 GigE Thermography 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. 

Due to its compact IP67 housing, the Serval 640 GigE Thermography does not need a third party enclosure, keeping the costs for system integrators down. The camera is also equipped with a lens cap with front window that protects the lens and avoids costly repairs or replacements of it. This lens cap is equipped with an air purge that keeps the lens clean in dusty environments.

As its name suggests, the Serval 640 GigE Thermography has a GigE Vision interface. The camera is easy to integrate in third party software by C related programming languages and the optionally available LabVIEW SDK. 

The Serval 640 GigE Thermography simply offers the best price-performance ratio on the market as a truly complete IP67 industrial thermography camera.
