Industrial grade infrared pyrometer with thermal imaging

December 2014 Temperature Measurement

LumaSense Technologies’ integrated ISR 6-TI is an advanced pyrometer with thermal imaging solution for increased control and optimisation of manufacturing processes in metals, glass and other materials industries. The ISR 6-TI Advanced combines pyrometry with infrared imaging technology to produce ‘Relative’ thermal images. These images are produced by measuring the temperature of the centre spot with a ratio pyrometer and using an infrared filter to show an auto-calibrated thermal image based on the highly accurate ratio pyrometer temperature reading.

The system is based on the proven ISR 6 Advanced pyrometer and a video camera that utilises a short wavelength infrared filter. The resulting ISR 6-TI Advanced system operates in a short wavelength (around 1 μm) for accurate and reliable temperature measurements between 700 and 1800°C. The analogue video output signal is converted to USB and fed to a PC using LumaSense’s InfraWin software, which generates and shows a relative thermal image from this signal. LumaSense’s InfraWin software also provides temperature, data-logging and analysis features. The ISR 6-TI Advanced paints a more-accurate picture for identifying potential issues before they lead to problems that impact process performance, a key benefit for materials manufacturers running heat-dependent processes.

“The ISR 6-TI Advanced solution is ideal for industries where it’s critical to know the temperature of an object as well as ensure uniformity across an object at that temperature,” says Daniel Schueftan, product manager for pyrometry at LumaSense Technologies. “It is accurate and easy to use by offering a single user interface for the pyrometer and thermal imaging function. The key advantage here is that there is no mechanical alignment required between the thermal image and the pyrometer, creating a seamlessly integrated system. As such, many processes in metals and glass making industries that use a single pyrometer to measure temperature can be improved with this innovative technology.”
