The world’s smallest IR temperature sensor now has brains.
Exergen’s microIRt/c sensor head has been combined with the company’s SmartIRt/c platform, making precision in small places a reality. The Smart-microIRt/c Series processes the signal from the microIRt/c, linearizes and gives an analog output (4-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V). Accuracy holds with changes in ambient from -45 to 100 degrees C, with no drifting.
The all digital system is plug and play, offering non-contact temperature measurement. Plus, there are no impedance, leakage current or linearity problems to worry about. The sensor head — the smallest in the market at 0.25 inches in diameter — is remote and, without air purge, can be used in ambient temperatures to 100 degrees C. With a small-sized air purge jacket, it can be cooled to 177 degrees C.
Four sensor heads with 1:2 and 4:1 optics, straight- and side-view mounting, built-in air purge, air purge jackets and mounting brackets are also available with the series.
Exergen is a leading manufacturer of infrared temperature sensors. The company holds the patent to the world’s only self-powered IRt/c, and offers 300 models of sensors (including powered with full-scale linearization). The IRt/c can be used to measure the temperature of moving objects and product temperature (free of contamination and without damaging the product) with a faster response time than ordinary contact sensors and with a longer lifetime.
Exergen’s SmartIRt/c platform is available from Brampton, Ont.-based Mod-Tronic Instruments, a representative and distributor of leading manufacturers of industrial/commercial sensors, transducers, heaters, flex circuits and instrumentation.
