The PyroMini OEM from Calex Electronics is a new infrared temperature sensor designed for OEM machine builders. Equipped with a miniature sensing head with right-angle cable entry, it can be used in ambient temperatures of up to 120°C without the need for cooling. This miniature sensing head measures 55 mm in length, including the sensor’s mounting thread. The separate electronics module has a small, lightweight housing that also fits into restricted spaces in machinery. It’s fixed emissivity setting of 0.95 makes it very simple to set up and enables it to measure non-reflective non-metal surfaces with industry-leading accuracy and repeatability.
The sensor fits the use in applications such as paper and corrugated board manufacturing, curing, heated rollers or power distribution
With a response time of 240 ms, the sensor delivers a near-instant measurement of the surface temperature. The PyroMini OEM can measure materials such as rubber, paper, wood, thick plastics, textiles, asphalt, resins, or organic materials. Metals can be measured as well if an area of the surface is painted first. Several analog outputs are available: two-wire 4-20 mA, four-wire Type J or K thermocouple, and 0-10 V DC.
