Sensors measure temperature from 50°C -1800°C

30 March 2009

Micro-Epsilon has launched the thermoMETER CT laser range of infrared non-contact temperature sensors. These sensors are ideal for measuring the temperature of metals, ceramics, composites and secondary metal processing application, from 50°C up to 1,800°C.

The Micro-Epsilon thermoMETER CT laser M3 is an infrared, inline (fixed) temperature sensor that measures at a short wavelength of 2.3µm for all temperature measurements between 50°C and 600°C. This sensor has the lowest unit price of any 2-3μm-wavelength sensor currently in the marketplace – typically 60% of the cost of currently available sensors.

With a start temperature of 50°C, the thermoMETER CT laser M3 fulfills the demands of end users who need to measure the temperature of metals, ceramics and composites, while processing at room temperature.

For higher temperatures up to 1,800°C, Micro-Epsilon’s thermoMETER CT laser M1/M2 temperature sensors can be used to measure temperature. Like the M3, the M1/M2 sensors have double precision laser sighting, but benefit from a 300:1 optical resolution and a minimum spot size of 0.45mm. Sensor response times are from 1ms.

The thermoMETER CT laser M1/M2 can be used in ambient temperatures up to 85°C without any cooling required and has an automatic laser switch off at 50°C. The sensor measures at very short wavelengths (1.0-1.6μm), which minimises temperature measurement errors on surfaces with either low or unknown emissivity.
