Touch displays, such as for smartphones and tablets, use ultra-thin glass, which brings special challenges for temperature measurement technology in their manufacturing
Non-contact temperature measurement is put to very good use in the medical industry, for example in temperature-sensitive treatments as well as in production and development processes.
Optris has launched CTratio, offering many improved parameters and new features such as the low bottom temperature of 275 °C, a maximum ambient temperature of up to 315 °C without cooling, and a green sighting laser.
Temperature measurement in processes where lasers are used, provides major challenges for infrared measurement technology.
Instrotech offers the latest in Optris infrared innovation, the Xi series, a fusion between a robust, compact pyrometer and an advanced IR camera. The integrated spot finder function enables accurate temperature measurements in moving objects without having to readjust the sensor. Sensor adjustment takes place autonomously, that is, without having to establish a connection with a PC. In addition to a direct 0/4-20 mA analog output, the devices also offer users digital interfaces such as Ethernet or RS-485. An external processing interface permits the further processing of up to nine (9) freely definable analog outputs, making it ideal for OEM applications.
Because the control of humidity is vital for many processes in pharmaceutical manufacturing, there are a large number of probes in use at anytime – all of which will need to be regularly calibrated to ensure accuracy. Sending RH probes away for calibration is a time-consuming exercise for both food and pharmaceutical companies, but is often seen as necessary as creation, modification, archival, retrieval and transmission of electronic records is essential business practice.
Many industrial processes involve high temperatures, often combined with harsh and corrosive environments. These types of conditions are not normally the best environment for precision instrumentation to be placed, as the sensors and equipment can degrade quickly.
Optris GmbH, has announced that the measurement range 150 °C ... 900 °C on all PI LT models is now extended to show temperatures from 20 °C. This new calibration is standard for all PI LT models. The user can activate in the PI Connect software to see image information and in addition temperature values below 150 °C. The specified accuracy in this range is valid from 150 °C.
Optris GmbH, has announced that the Optris PI 450 and PI 640 infrared cameras can now also be calibrated for a temperature measurement range of up to 1500°C. This allows the two high-resolution cameras to be integrated into applications which far exceed the previous threshold of 900°C.
Kobold has on offer their type TNS and TNF series for direct measurement of analogue temperature in industrial processes.
