Mini IR pyrometer measures non-metallic surfaces

Home Engineering Electronic - Instrumentation & Control Mini IR pyrometer measures non-metallic surfaces

THE Optris CSmicro 2W LT, a compact pyrometer equipped with an innovative, miniaturized stainless steel measuring head, is is ideal for limited or narrow spaces.

That’s according to local distributors, Instrotech, which says the instrument’s high temperature resistance (up to 180°C) without cooling, makes it the ideal measuring device in hot ambient temperatures.

The infrared pyrometer has been designed for a temperature range from -40°C to 1,030°C and is equipped with an LED display for alarm signalisation, target assistance, self-diagnosis or temperature-code display. It can be operated via simple two-wire installation or be plugged via USB.

The CSmicro 2W LT pyrometer was designed for the measurement of non-metallic surfaces. “Since the IR thermometer offers a temperature resistance of up to 180°C without cooling, it is ideally suited, for example, to the surveillance of surface temperatures during lamination processes in vehicle interiors, typically in temperatures of about 120°C,” the company said in a statement.

“In the plastics industry, the pyrometer works perfectly for temperature regulation during the thermoform17ing of foils, where it monitors defined measurement points.”

The company said the instrument would also prove useful in the manufacture of circuit boards, where it was ideal for performing function tests once the circuit boards are equipped, registering thermal behavior (touchless) quickly, and without influencing delicate measuring objects.
