Reliable Infrared Temperature Measurement at Metal from 50°C

Optris offers the short-wave measuring IR thermometers with the wavelength identifier 1M, 2M and 3M for precise measurement of metal surfaces. Due to the innovative, stationary 3M devices with a starting temperature of 50°C, the monitoring of metal and composites can now be achieved at close to room temperature. The 1M devices are calibrated for up to 1800°C for high temperature applications such as welding or hardening.

Portable devices are used e.g. in hardening shops where temperature measurement takes place infrequently within performance- and time-based facilities. Should a large number of infrared measurement points be arranged (OEM-usage), the small and affordable stationary devices of the compact series can be used. Through efficient optics of the sensors of the high performance series, smallest objects can be measured starting from a size of 0.5 mm and can be exactly targeted through an innovative double laser sight.

A highlight of some of the stationary devices is the seperate electronic box. Therewith the devices can be implemented e.g. close to induction process without the interference of electromagnetic fields. The diverse options of the data output (digital/analog), the easy accessible programming keys as well as the intelligent display at the electronic box allow an easy integration of the devices into existing and proposed facilities.

At fiberglass pyrometer optris CTratio 1M, the sensing head and the seperate electronic box are connected via a fiber optic cable. The sensing head as well as the fiber optic cable can be used at temperatures up to 250°C without an additional cooling system.
