Process integration of IR thermometers made easy

07 February 2012

Stand A31: Showcasing an innovative interface concept, Optris will demonstrate how easily and quickly infrared thermometers can be integrated into automated systems.

In addition to the sensor head all of the company's infrared measuring devices also feature a separate electronics box, for the implementation of multiple concepts for interfacing with automation systems.

In addition to the analogue interface there are six digital interfaces to choose from, allowing  customers to select and install the interface which best suits their application and environmental conditions. All interfaces are bidirectional, allowing parameters to be both sent and received.

The temperature sensor can be connected to a network or controller using RS232, RS485, USB, CAN, Profibus DP or Ethernet. Specific measuring set-ups are required for the measurement of various materials with different emissivities. This digital communication feature allows users to assign parameters easily. It also dispenses with the need for an A/D converter. Further, digital interfaces are able to bridge long distances, making installations much more flexible.
