The Raytek MP150 infrared line scanner is designed for use in highly demanding industrial environments and provides accurate temperature images of moving objects. This multi-point measurement is achieved by a rotating optical system, which collects infrared radiation at up to 1024 points within a 90º field-of-view. The motorized mirror scans at rates up to 150 lines per second.

An internal high-speed microprocessor calculates the temperature of the individual measurement points of each line of data. The MP150 includes provision for air or water-cooling, three configurable analog outputs, and two-way digital communications. The linescanner also features on-board Ethernet TCP/IP communication capability and a built-in line laser for rapid alignment.
