Infrared temperature sensor
Jun 01, 2013
Infrared temperature sensorThe Micro-Epsilon thermoMETER CtratioM1 two-color ratio infrared temperature sensor measures temperatures from 700 to 1,800 deg C and can operate in ambient temperatures up to 250 deg C without requiring any cooling. The sensor is insensitive to dust, smoke fumes and steam. Using the ratiometric measuring principle, the sensor minimizes measurement errors caused by laser intensity changes, low emissivity, and partial spot size coverage. Even in cases where the infrared radiation beam is weakened to 95 percent of its original intensity due to smoke or steam, the ratio pyrometer still provides reliable measurements. In order to adapt the sensor to different measurement tasks, the pyrometer offers a choice of a one- or two-channel (ratio pyrometer mode) device, which enables the user to select the most appropriate one without having to purchase additional infrared sensors.
