PSC-CS Laser

STAND ALONE, IR THERMOMETER?S DUAL LASERS, MAKE FOCUSING AND TARGET SIZE DETERMINATION EASY.

Knowing the precise point or area of a target to be monitored when using infrared thermometers for temperature measurement is critical to measurement accuracy. Process Sensors? newly released model PSC-CS-Laser thermometer series eliminates guesswork by using two, built-in, bright red lasers.

At the focus distance, the laser beams converge to form a single spot on the target. At distances other than the focus length, individual laser spots delineate the measured target size diameter. The model PSC-CS-Laser series are self contained pyrometers constructed from rugged stainless steel that can be configured for 2 wire loop powered or 4 wire operation when utilizing dual lasers for targeting.

The high accuracy infrared temperature sensor can operate in ambient temperatures up to 185?F (85?C) without the need for cooling, offers fast speed of response and high resolution optics with selectable fixed focus distances for small target sizes from 0.020? (0.5mm) in diameter. The rugged stainless steel housing with companion heavy duty cooling jacket with air purge, stands up to the most severe industrial environments.

Spectral responses of 8 to 14? with a temperature range of -50 to 975?C, or 1.6? with a temperature range of 385 to 1600?C, suit the loop powered, compact sensors to a wide range of applications such as induction heating, metal processing, semiconductors, paper, plastics, webs, ovens, furnaces, glass, ceramics, thermoforming, food, powders, liquids, hot material /aggregate on conveyors etc. Outputs are analog 4 to 20mA, 0-30V open collector, used for alarm and digital uni/bidirectional, 9.6kBaud, communication.

Measurement parameters such as emissivity can be set manually on the IR sensor, or via PSC Connect software with optional USB connector. The software also facilitates the set-up of peak, valley and averaging functions, graphic display of temperature trends, and data logging with a 1ms response time.

HIGH SPEED IR THERMOMETER BREAKS MILLISECOND RESPONSE BARRIER

The response speed of the fastest infrared thermometers until now has been limited to the millisecond domain. Process Sensors newly released, self contained, Metis HS09/HI16 non-contact infrared temperature sensor captures 20,000 measurements per second with an unprecedented 50 microsecond response.

With a temperature span of 250?C to 2500?C, over three models, the HS/HI Series opens up applications in high speed ferrous and non-ferrous metals processing, ceramics, semiconductor and in research environments where short duration phenomena such as explosions must be monitored. Target spot sizes of 0.35mm to 4000mm dia. are offered over the same three models, using standard, focusable optics; or 0.5mm to 40mm with focusable lens fiber optics.

Other notable features include laser aiming and through lens sighting, and an integral black and white video camera for monitoring the target area in hazardous or hard to access locations. A peak picker function can be set up to detect and hold the highest measurement in applications where the target is intermittently obscured by steam, dust or surface scale.

Switchable, analog 0 to 20mA /4 to 20mA outputs connect with process control or data acquisition equipment. A fast, digital, RS485, 921 kBd maximum communications interface is also included. IR Thermometer parameters can be set up using Process Sensors free PSCWin software. The software also facilitates the recording of data in graphical, text or tabular format.
