Original Press Release:

New IR Thermometer Features 50°C to 1800°C Wide Temp Range

Process Sensors Corporation is pleased to introduce its newest non-contact infrared temperature sensor with real-time video capability. The PSC-SSS-Laser-3M-Video and companion software allow storage and instant integration of actual images into software graphs that are easily retrieved for later evaluation. Parallel use of the real-time video and dual laser sighting feature allows for easy alignment and exact pinpointing of the measured target.

The high speed PSC-SSS-Laser-3M-Video features five distinct temperature ranges that stretch from low to high and span from 50° to 1800°C (122° to 3272°F) utilizing a short wavelength of a 2.3μm spectral response. The short wave length minimizes the effects of emissivity caused by semi/shiny target materials. The sensor is perfectly suited for non-contact temperature measurement of metals. Through the use of the PSC-SSS-Laser-3M-Video, a higher quality of product can be achieved as well as a reduction in process costs through specific process optimization. Examples of this would include induction heating, forging, casting and medical/aerospace applications that involve metal heating processing.

With standard adjustable manual focus optics from 200mm to infinity, close focus optics from 90mm to 250mm, and video and crosshair sighting for pinpointing targets as small as 0.020 (0.5mm), the sensor has a fast response time from 1ms. The PSC Connect software and USB cable enables easy set-up of all pyrometer parameters, video alignment video capture and storage, and real-time process monitoring. Parameters include peak hold, valley hold, average, and extended hold functions with threshold and hysteresis.

Offering a compact and rugged stainless steel housing and industrial accessories, the PSCLaser- 3M-Video is usable in up to 70°C (158°F) ambient temperatures without cooling.

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.
