Infrared Pyrometer for Fast and Precise Detection of Low Temperatures
The infrared thermoMETER CTM-4 pyrometers precisely detects temperatures from 0 °C to 500 °C. For this extremely fast measurement, a signal of just 90 µs is sufficient for non-contact temperature detection. This compact temperature sensor can even be ideally integrated into small installation spaces.
The new thermoMETER CTM-4 infrared pyrometer measures temperatures from 0 °C to 500 °C with extremely high speed and precision. While previous models work in the millisecond range, a signal of just 90 µs is sufficient for non-contact temperature measurements. The temperature value is output every 300 µs.
The temperature sensor works with a spectral range from 2.2 up to 6 µm wavelength. This enables high flexibility for versatile fields of application. Measurements can be made on metals and non-metals such as ceramics and plastics. In the packaging industry, for example, hot-melt adhesives are measured. Another application can be found in rail traffic where moving components such as wheel bearings and brakes of railway wagons are be measured whilst the train is moving.
Controller and sensor are installed separately which is a space-saving method to enable integration even in restricted spaces. Measurement values can be output via different interfaces. For quick parameter set up, the integrated USB interface is used. The CompactPlus Connect software is included in the scope of supply and offers various setting options.
