PyroUSB noncontact infrared temperature sensor

December 2014 Temperature Measurement

Calex has introduced the new PyroUSB noncontact IR temperature sensor that connects directly to a PC via a USB cable and operates without the need for any additional hardware interface or power supply.

The CalexSoft software is simple to install and displays temperature in numerical format and on a simulated scrolling chart. Users can set the temperature range and emissivity, compensate for reflected energy, apply filtering and use peak or valley-hold processing to measure hot or cold objects on conveyors. The software may also be used to record measurements at any interval from 1 second to 1 week, pre-programmed to start and finish at any time or date. Audible/visual alarms can be set to warn users that the temperature is either too high or too low. The built-in OPC Server interface allows communication between the sensor and any other equipment with OPC Client capabilities, making systems integration simple and affordable.

In addition to the USB interface, the sensor is equipped with a 2-wire, 4 to 20 mA output, which is linear with temperature. This can be connected at the same time as the USB interface or independently and the sensor is capable of measuring temperatures accurately from -40 to 1000°C. If a smaller range is required this can be set using the CalexSoft software.

The stainless steel housing is sealed to IP65, making it ideal for food and pharmaceutical applications. It is held in place by a mounting nut via fixed and adjustable brackets. A laser-sighting tool is available to assist with alignment.
