New wind curtain and pneumatic shutter for camera enclosures

The technology known from the Salamander-housing series has now been adapted to 3″ windows. The new wind curtain provides also a clear view for the larger enclosure series Orca, Mammoth and Chameleon L. Loose dust is simply blown with a single blast of the screen. Expected deposits or lighter fluid mist can be kept away from the window by a permanent airflow. The wind curtain also helps in high-grade ambient contamination to prolong the cleaning intervals significantly and thus reduce down time and costs.

Even more extreme demands occur in areas with cooling lubricants or wax spray used, as in machining centers or chassis corrosion protection. In general, however, an image recording is only required before and after the machining, e.g. to verify the position of the workpiece. During the machining process, the front window would contaminated by splashing coolant and chips or even damaged. Remedy creates the pneumatically driven protective shutter. This is only open during the image acquisition. An additional wind curtain can be used to build overpressure to prevent splashes on the windscreen at the moment of opening.
