Extended comms capabilities for pyrometer

28 August 2023

AMETEK Land has relaunched its SPOT pyrometer products. The new SPOT+ family offers a range of temperature measurements from 50 to 3,500°C and a choice of different wavelengths for applications including metals, glass, cement and lime kilns and foundries.

The range includes monochromatic and ratio pyrometers, fibre optic heads and sophisticated algorithm pyrometers for complex materials such as aluminium and galvanized steel. 

New communications interfaces makes the SPOT+ suited to use in for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) factory automation applications, in addition to traditional 4-20 mA signals. Ethernet/IP, REST API and Modbus TCP/IP are standard on SPOT+, and an integrated web server provides access for control and setup using a standard browser. Upgraded cybersecurity functions reduce the likelihood of unauthorised access to the instrument functions. 

An integrated video camera provides a visible light process view alongside infrared temperature measurement. As the video images are available via the webserver and AMETEK Land’s IMAGEPro software, alignment can be checked remotely and images logged for quality purposes. 

The SPOT+ can be used in the harsh of environmental conditions, and in hazardous area zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 when mounted in LAND’s high-specification EXSH enclosure. With response times down to 1ms, SPOT+ pyrometers are also said to be suitable for fast-moving processes.
