The Serval fulfils a growing demand for ruggedized and reliable thermal cameras for industrial imaging applications without the need for third-party enclosures.

The Serval thermal camera is directed at demanding indoor uses, such as in-line process and quality control in harsh and hot industrial environments. In this highly specialized field, system integrators are looking for new solutions in terms of easy and maintenance-free installations as well as long-term stability.

This thermal infrared camera is designed for long-term stable and reliable operation under difficult ambient conditions. Its compact form factor provides front window protection with air purge to avoid costly repair or replacement of the lens; and to allow permanent use in dust-loaded atmospheres.

As a specific advantage compared to existing similar solutions, the new Xenics Serval offers a variety of configurations with a specific athermalized fixed lens and optional cooling on its housing, all combined with a very small form factor. This thermal infrared camera comes with an IP67 protection grade enclosure such that no large third-party enclosure is needed anymore when adding a thermal imaging installation to given machine vision applications.


The Serval 640 GigE Thermography is a LWIR camera in an IP67-rated enclosure. The camera is developed for demanding indoor applications in harsh, hot and dusty environments. The goal was to design a thermal camera able to measure temperatures that can be used, with a minimum of maintenance, in extreme environments.

The Serval 640 GigE Thermography has standard on-board calibration ranges. Xenics offers calibrations (only with selected lenses) from:

  • -20°C to 120°C
  • 50°C to 400°C

Due to its compact IP67 housing, the Serval 640 GigE Thermography does not need a third party enclosure, keeping the costs for system integrators down. The camera is also equipped with a lens cap with front window that protects the lens and avoids costly repairs or replacements of it. This lens cap is equipped with an air purge that keeps the lens clean in dusty environments.

As its name suggests, the Serval 640 GigE Thermography has a GigE Vision interface. The camera is easy to integrate in third party software by C related programming languages and the optionally available LabVIEW SDK.

The Serval 640 GigE Thermography simply offers the best price-performance ratio on the market as a truly complete IP67 industrial thermography camera.
