With very fast processes, requirements for the pyrometers used for temperature measurement are especially onerous.
Typical examples are plastics processing machinery, such as those used for blow-molding PET bottles, which work on very short cycle times.
Another application is the monitoring of rail vehicles, where the temperature of the wheelset bearings are measured as the train wheels pass the pyrometer, to be able to detect components running hot in good time.
Optris now offers the new high-speed pyrometer CT 4M for these types of challenging tasks. With a detection time of just 90 µs, it is the fastest pyrometer within the product range at Optris.
