Designed for easy integration, the CM sensor can easily replace traditional contact probes with a J-type or K-type thermocouple output, or with a user-scaleable 0-5 volt output, if the application is susceptible to noise. The Raytek CM includes precision, high-resolution siliconoptics. A RS232 digital interface allows the user to configure all programmable sensor variables via the Multidrop software. These include a 24VDC alarm output triggered by target temperature or head ambient temperature; peak hold, valley hold or variable averaging signal processing; adjustable target emissivity settings; and adjustable window transmissivity setting. A built-in sensor health LED provides a convenient on-line indicator of the sensor's operating status and aids in troubleshooting initial sensor set up. The Raytek CM sensor is designed to measure target temperatures ranging from -20 to 500Â°C. Its onboard electronics are protected by a rugged IP65 stainless steel housing.
