The ScanIR3 Linescanner Series is a family of advanced infrared linescanners that provides accurate, real-time, thermal imaging for a wide variety of industrial applications, including continuous sheet and web-based processes, as well as discrete manufacturing processes. The ScanIR3 series is designed for reliability and continuous operation in harsh industrial environments. The ScanIR3 robust housing includes built-in provisions for water-cooling and air-purge, and features built-in laser sighting. A rugged processor box provides universal input and output capabilities in the field without the need for an external computer. The ScanIR3 linescanner is surprisingly easy to install and manage. One bundled sensing head cable allows for fast and easy installation. Versatile ScanView Pro software allows custom configuration of ScanIR3 operating parameters, and display of thermal images and temperature profiles on a standard PC.

  • One bundled sensing head cable with one-click connector to the scanner



Real-time thermal imaging is provided by ScanView Pro software for temperature monitoring, display and analysis. With ScanView Pro software, you can quickly detect a hot spot or non-uniformity before it becomes a problem. The ScanView Pro software provides features to subdivide thermal images from the ScanIR3 linescanner into portions of specific interest. Temperatures in each portion can be processed for certain math functions, like average, maximum or minimum temperatures. In case of a thermal defect, the software triggers an alarm. For interfacing with other control systems, temperatures are available as current or voltage analog outputs by virtue of the analog output modules provided as an option with the processor box. No PC is necessary to provide these outputs.


Edge-to-edge Temperature Measurement:

Unlike point sensors that measure a single point, the ScanIR3 scanner measures multiple temperature points across a scan line. The ScanIR3 motorized mirror scans at rates up to 150 lines per second. The faster scan rate allows rapid detection of temperature non-uniformities and hot spots. Rotating optics collect infrared radiation at 1024 points within a 90°C field of view. A two-dimensional image is formed as the material moves across the field-of-view


High Temperature Enclosure:

  • High temperature enclosure for the ScanIR3 linescanner withstands process temperatures up to 1090°C
  • Modular system with choice of cooling options allows users to configure to suit their application
  • Rugged stainless steel construction
  • Integrated shutter for fail-safe operation





ScanView Pro Software:

  • View two-dimensional thermal images, temperature profiles and differential images
  • Define product-specific configurations
  • Analyze temperatures automatically (Minimum, Maximum and Average)
  • Fail-safe alarm logging
  • Define a reference image display
  • Playback stored thermal images as a movie
  • System interfaces include analog/digital output modules, OPC or DDE server, or COM port
  • Supports multiple ScanIR3 linescanners
