Infrared temperature sensor with IO-Link

10 September 2017

Balluff has developed a new BTS infrared temperature sensor with IO-Link interface and two switching outputs. It can monitor temperatures between 250 and 1250°C even in inaccessible or hazardous areas, detect hot objects in motion and record temperature values - all without contact.

The pyrometer in the rugged M30 stainless steel housing with IP67 protection is said to be the first in this form factor to offer a multi-function display with plain text information and automatic display orientation like with a smartphone.

In addition to two switching outputs the pyrometer provides an IO-Link interface for remote parameter setting and direct data exchange with the controller or control panel. An analog 4/20 mA output is available as an option.

A variety of setting possibilities and functions open up a range of applications areas including steelworks, foundries, forging, the ceramics industry and glassworks.
