M530 LYNX Camera


The M530 Series of Visible Light High-Temperature Color Cameras is designed to give you the flexibility to customize electronics, lenses, filters and other options to provide continuous monitoring of your high temperature internal processes. Straight, oblique, or right angle lens tube options are available that offer more flexibility in mounting the camera. Add an M721 remote auto iris to adjust the camera iris from the comfort of the control room providing a clear picture from start-up to full load Imaging.

  • Rotary Kilns & Coolers: Provides continuous product quality monitoring. Observe ring formation, burner flame and product as it moves down the kiln or cooler. See potential Upsets early
  • Coal Fired Utility Boiler: Monitor flame shape to adjust burners for maximum combustion & minimum fuel usage
  • Bark Fired Boiler: Observe fuel distribution, bed & feeder monitoring, combustion & flame characteristics
  • Glass Melt Tanks: View for flame impingement & monitor the crown for dripping. Easily see batch load, flow pattern & any un-melted surface material
