Raytek and Ircon at glasstec / solarpeq 2012

31 October 2012

Berlin – Raytek and Ircon attend the glasstec / solarpeq 2012 exhibitions with a joined booth in Hall 14, Stand A43. 

The experts for contact-free temperature measurement present infrared sensors and solutions for various glass and photovoltaics applications, from miniature sensing heads to sophisticated imaging systems with customer-specific interfaces. Raytek and Ircon pyrometers allow for continuous real-time temperature monitoring and profiling. They enable users to optimize process control and thus improve product quality, throughput and homogeneity. One of the main showpieces, the Raytek MI3 system features miniature sensing heads and a variety of electronics boxes in a protective housing or in a DIN rail housing with optional fieldbus interfaces for RS485, Profibus, and Modbus. With a length of only 28 mm and a width of 14 mm, the IP65-rated sensing head in its stainless steel housing is the smallest stand-alone infrared pyrometer in the world and a versatile solution for OEMs. Another unique selling point of the MI3 series is its multiple sensing head design: up to eight individually addressable sensing heads can be connected to an MI3 electronics box. Furthermore, the MI3 series includes a new electronics box with four analog outputs that are galvanically isolated from the power supply as well as from each other.Another exhibit at glasstec 2012 is the Raytek sensor MMG7 for noncontact temperature measurement in the manufacturing of thin glass in the µm range. This latest addition to the Marathon program provides a unique combination of wavelength (7,9 µm) and measured temperature range (300-900 °C), an outstanding 100:1 resolution, and a short response time of just 120 ms.

Ircon showcases versatile solutions such as the Modline 7 series. With appropriate cooling accessories, these rugged point sensors are suitable for ambient temperatures up to 315 °C. They cover measurement ranges between -40 and +3,000 °C. Short response times and a high resolution make Modline 7 pyrometers a favorite choice, e.g., for process monitoring in primary and secondary glass production.
