Smart little infrared temperature sensor

19 March 2013

Micro-Epsilon has launched a new non-contact infrared temperature sensor that utilises a small sensor head with the electronics fully integrated into the sensor cable, making it suitable for use in installations where space is at a premium.

The thermoMETER CSmicro miniature sensor electronics now includes an LED for health checking the system. The integrated LED can be used for alarm indication, intelligent sighting support, self-diagnostic functions or for showing the current measured temperature value without the need to look at the serial or analogue output.

The is available in four models, covering a temperature range from -20°C to +1030°C and can withstand ambient temperatures up to 120°C without the need for additional cooling.
The sensore is also available as a two-wire loop powered version. The signal is output via a current output and the temperature range is from -40°C to +1030° C. A short wavelength model is also available for temperatures up to 1,600°C.

The CSmicro series is currently being used on a tactile reference system or sensotact-scale. The manufacturer of the tactile reference system required a non-contact temperature sensor with a very small sensor head, miniature electronics and a small laser spot size, as well as low power consumption and high speed measurement capability. Now, by integrating a CSmicro to the system, precise measurements can be recorded without time-consuming studies being carried out by inspectors, which normally lead to subjective test results. Temperature measurements are now exact and do not depend on the transparency, gloss or colour of the target material.
