The Raytek MP150 infrared line scanner is designed for use in highly demanding industrial environments and provides accurate temperature images of moving objects. This multi-point measurement is achieved by a rotating optical system, which collects infrared radiation at up to 1024 points within a 90º field-of-view. The motorized mirror scans at rates up to 150 lines per second.

An internal high-speed microprocessor calculates the temperature of the individual measurement points of each line of data. The MP150 includes provision for air or water-cooling, three configurable analog outputs, and two-way digital communications. The linescanner also features on-board Ethernet TCP/IP communication capability and a built-in line laser for rapid alignment.

The MP150 can be used in stand alone mode, connected to a single PC or integrated into a comprehensive process control system using DataTemp DP, an industrial Windows software package, that provides remote configuration of the imager and real-time monitoring of the process. Utilizing the OPC Server functionality of the DataTemp DP software, the scanner becomes an integral part of any OPC compliant Distributed Control Interface (DCI) or Human Machine Interface (HMI) system. In all cases, the MP150 provides real-time monitoring and control capabilities. Optional analog or digital output modules are available. MP150 Process Imager Systems are available with a choice of temperature and spectral ranges.
