The CHINO TP-L Series thermal imaging sensor is a compact infrared thermal imaging sensor utilizing a thermopile array detector. CHINO thermal imaging sensors allow you measure real-time temperature and their Ethernet/USB connectivity allows them to communicate this data to a PC. With a temperature range of -20 to 300°C, and a resolution of 0.5°C, the CHINO TP-L is useful across a number of temperature-dependent applications.

Monitoring and capturing modes add to the versatility of the CHINO TP-L Series thermal imaging sensor, along with viewing angles of 60° x 60° or 25° x 25°. With the monitoring mode, TP-L sensors utilize the exclusive viewer software (included) to output temperature data continuously by a command from the PC. Capturing mode does not require use of the exclusive viewer software, but the temperature data is transmitted row-by-row horizontally by a command from the PLC.

In monitoring mode, you can use a single CHINO TP-L Series thermal imaging sensor or multiple sensors. A single CHINO unit can monitor one area and has two alarm outputs. If the alarm is triggered, the sensor will store an image to the memory, with updates occurring after every alarm. Reading the data from a host PC is also possible in monitoring mode. Up to four sensors can be connected through a LAN and the monitoring and alarm outputs from each sensor can be used together.
