Non-contact temperature sensors

July 2005 Sensors & Transducers

The PRO Series is a complete line of non-contact temperature sensors that offers high-performance capabilities for both traditional and difficult applications. From advanced programming capabilities to an intuitive operator interface, the PRO Series sensors deliver innovations throughout to provide greater accuracy and reliability in a system that is easy to use.

Non-contact temperature sensors measure the amount of infrared energy that is emitted from an object's surface and converts that signal into a temperature value. Many factors affect a sensor's measurement accuracy. One important consideration to sensor selection is the emissivity characteristics of the measured surface.

The PRO Series offers a complete selection of sensors to satisfy applications with various emissivity requirements. The PRO Series sensors offer accurate reliable and repeatable measurements, they measure the hottest temperature viewed, and view partially obstructed targets.

They tolerate dirty atmosphere and windows. There is automatic emissivity compensation for most materials, and the temperature limits are 150 to 2425°C. Accuracy improves and maintenance is reduced. The need for precise alignment is eliminated.
