Overview

The PSC-PC, PSC-PE, PSC-PB Series of high quality, low cost non-contact sensors measure the temperature of moving objects and low reflective materials. Loop-powered & self-contained, they are ideal for OEM applications & non-reflective metals. The IR sensors PSC-PE and PB has an adjustable emissivity via remote signal and has a fixed emissivity at 0.95. All models share a temperature range starting from 0 to 500ºC.

Ideal for OEM applications, and intended for temperature measurement on non-reflective materials, these compact but durable sensors are super simple to install and operate.  Applications include

  • Paper and corrugated material
  • Asphalt
  • Thick plastics
  • Food
  • Rubber

Painted surfaces and organic materials are also mastered easily with these high-quality, low cost performers.

Compact and rugged, the PSC-PC and PSC-PE are constructed of stainless steel and have a full range of unique companion accessories for harsh installation conditions, sighting and mounting installation for reliable and accurate measurements. Their space saving design is easy-to-wire and simple to integrate into existing data acquisition systems.

Both the PSC-PC and the PSC-PE are available with a choice of three temperature ranges:  Low temp. of -20 to 100°C, Mid temp. of 0 to 250°C, and High temp. of 0 to 500°C.  Further enhancing their appeal is their ease of installation.  Absolutely no complicated setup is necessary.  Users simply connect a temperature indicator and power supply to instantly begin taking measurements. 

Both simple sensor models operate in the 8 to 14µm spectral range, have a response time of 240ms, and provide two-wire Loop powered 4-20 mA linear output of the measured temperature.  The PSC-PC has a fixed emissivity setting at 0.95 (for very dull surface materials), while the PSC-PE emissivity can be changed manually by the operator with the separate push-button PSC-Tune emissivity adjuster or continuously via a 4-20mA input to the IR sensor.  This is used if the target being measured is slightly reflective.PSC-PB  low cost IR temperature sensor

The PSC-PB is a networkable, fully configurable sensor with RS-485 Modbus RTU communications. Up to 247 sensors may be connected to a single network, connecting 6-channel terminals and sensors directly into an existing RS-485 Modbus system. Adjustable emissivity settings makes it capable for use on a wide range of materials and the PSC-PB's inherent reflected energy compensation makes it perfect for accurately measuring the temperature of objects in ovens or chillers. The PSC-PB also features peak and valley hold processing for measuring individual objects on a conveyor. An optional 6-channel touch screen terminal for local display, configuration and data logging can also be added to the sensor.
