Non-Contact Temperature Sensors

Infrared temperature sensors are calibrated to match thermocouples in specific temperature ranges.  Some are pre-calibrated.  Others are adjustable by a screw within a range of interest and material properties.  Models are available for different materials.
  • Pre-calibrated
    • Highly reliable
    • No active electronics to fail
    • Mean Time Between Failure rate > 1,000 years between failures
    • Intrinsically Safe
    • Fast Response time
    • Signal emulates conventional thermocouple signal
  • Adjustable
    • Range varies with the turn of a screw
    • Select models by…
    • Temperature range
    • Spot size
    • Thermocouple type desired
    • Target
