New IR-screw-in temperature sensor METS-IR of the Modular Economic Sensor series by Müller Industrie-Elektronik takes care of process supervision by non-contact quick and exact temperature control using the infrared procedure, as the sensor receives the infrared radiation emitted by the object, converts it into an electric measuring signal and into a standard signal according to the temperature value. The operation and setting is carried out directly at the sensor by a user-friendly display with three keys and integrated 4-digit 7-segment current loop indicator. The display head on the case body of the sensor is swivelling around 300 ° for hardly accessible areas and the case body including the electrical connection is, in addition, also turnable around 300 °.
The infrared screwing temperature sensor is designed in 3-wire technology and is equipped optionally with two configurable electronic limit value contacts. The device measures the maximum range of -40 ... +1000 ° C with an optical resolution of up to 15:1 in the spectral range 8 .. 14 µm. As output signal, the sensor delivers 4... 20 mA and a heterodyned HART communication signal. For the process connection, several options are available. The electric connection is done by an 8-pole M12 connector. For the configuration, the sensor can be connected to a PC via USB by an optionally available HART interface.
