IR Thermometer measures metal surfaces and molten metals.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring very short measuring wavelength of 525 nm, Model PSC-SSS-LASER-05M minimizes measuring errors due to emissivity uncertainty and atmospheric changes. Non-contact sensor offers temperature range of 1,000–2,000°C, scalable via programming keys or included PSC Connect software. Providing 150:1 FOV with choice of fixed focus optics, PSC-SSS-LASER-05M has response time of 1 ms. Outputs include USB, RS-232, RS-485, CAN, Profibus DP, and Ethernet.

Original Press Release:

New, PSC-SSS-Laser-05M High Performance, Ultra-Short Wavelength Infrared Thermometer for Metals/Molten Metals

Process Sensors Corporation is pleased to introduce its newest non-contact infrared thermometer designed specifically for temperature measurement of metal surfaces and molten metals.   Featuring a very short measuring wavelength of 525 nm, the PSC-SSS-LASER-05M minimizes measuring errors due to emissivity uncertainty and atmospheric changes. 

The sensor offers a temperature range between 1000 and 2000ºC, scalable via simple-to-use programming keys or the included PSC Connect software.  The same keys and software adjust peak hold, valley hold, average and extended hold functions with threshold and hysteresis.  The sensor’s dual lasers precisely pinpoint targets at any distance.  Boasting a 150:1 FOV with a choice of fixed focus optics, the PSC-SSS-LASER-05M has a fast response time of 1ms.  High resolution optics provide spot sizes from 1mm.

The PSC-SSS-LASER-05M features a choice of outputs including USB, RS-232, RS-485, CAN, Profibus DP and Ethernet.  Programmable functional inputs for external emissivity adjustment, ambient temperature compensation and trigger reset of hold functions are provided.

PSC-SSS-LASER-05M is ideal for monitoring molten metal pour streams, crucibles, disamatic casting operations, furnaces, graphite applications and high temperature induction heat treating/forging applications.

The sensor is usable up to 85ºC ambient temperature without a cooling apparatus and features an automatic laser “switch off” at 50ºC.  The sensor head can be installed in high ambient temperatures and a full line of rugged industrial accessories is available for its protection and optimum operation.  These include an advanced cooling jacket for use with air or water; mechanical accessories including mounting brackets, air purge collars to protect from dust and outside impact, and sight tubes and mounting flanges.

Process Sensors Corporation offers the widest range of high performance, non-contact infrared temperature sensors, thermal imaging / thermal line scanning systems, and blackbody calibration sources to meet the most demanding on-line industrial process applications as well as sensitive OEM performance requirements.  Detailed specification information can be found at
