New Arc Series from Land Instruments Views Any Target at Any Distance

DRONFIELD, ENGLAND - A series of thermal imaging cameras rugged enough for heavy industrial applications and compact enough for use in R&D and automation has been introduced by Land Instruments International, a unit of AMETEK, Inc. The new Arc cameras have high resolution radiometric imagers and field of view options that can view targets at any distance with high clarity. The cameras operate over a wide temperature range (-20 to 1000°C).

Because temperature processing is performed by onboard software, the cameras do not need to be connected to a PC. Connection to a range of I/O modules by standard industrial Ethernet allows simple stand-alone operation. The high-resolution thermal imager uses advanced focal plane array detector technology to produce high-accuracy temperature measurements.

Available options include two temperature ranges, four lenses, two frame sets and three software variants. Standard Arc Viewer software enables visualization of thermal data; Viewer+ offers configuration of Smart Camera features; and LIPS allows complete analysis, recording and playback of thermal data. A choice of enclosures allows dependable operation in harsh environments.

Land Instruments International ( designs and manufactures monitors and analyzers for industrial infrared temperature measurement, combustion efficiency and environmental pollutant emissions. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices motors with annualized sales of $2.9 billion.
