Optris GmbH developed a system based on the PI 640 IR camera that can be used on any glass tempering system.

Top Down GIS 640 R helps solve the low emissivity problem: above the glass, at the exit of the oven, an infrared camera type PI 640 is installed, which determines the temperature distribution of the individual panes over the entire system.

Below the glass, on the side without the Low-E coating, a CT G5L pyrometer measures the glass temperature. The individual pixels of the IR camera image are referenced to this measured value. The system also calculates the glass surface area.

Both the infrared camera and the pyrometer are equipped with a digitally controlled optics protection system.
