Enclosures for Specim FX10 and FX17

AutoVimation expands its protective enclosure range for Specim FX10 and FX17 hyperspectral cameras by two new models. In addition to the standard enclosure for Specim cameras featuring protection class IP66/IP67, a stainless-steel version in hygienic design and a temperature-controlled version are now also available. Specim hyperspectral cameras are mainly used for foreign object detection, plastics sorting and drug concentration analysis in food and pharmaceutical processes.

However, until now, no suitable, hygienically designed protective enclosures were available that could be safely installed above the production lines. autoVimation now closes this gap, launching the new camera enclosures made of AISI 316L (V4A) stainless steel, which withstand wet cleaning with aggressive cleaning agents.

Gap-free enclosure surfaces and hygienic cable glands minimize the risk of contamination. The second innovation for Specim cameras, thermoelectrically temperature-controlled protective enclosures allow cameras with a permissible temperature range of 5 °C to 40 °C to be used in ambient temperatures up to -20 °C to 70 °C. The system provides camera cooling by up to 25 K below the ambient temperature. The enclosures can also be used to stabilize camera temperatures to increase measuring accuracy in critical applications.
