RS Pro Infrared Temperature Sensors

RS Pro non-contact infrared temperature sensors. The temperature sensor is extremely small, with a side-entry cable making it ideal for mounting in tight spaces. Featuring configurable parameters for temperature range, alarm ouput and emissivity settings to give full control of temperature sensing requirements. The temperature sensor measures the average temperature within a spot. The size of the spot will depend on the distance between the sensor and the surface. The sensor can be positioned very close to the target surface, to measure a small area, or used at long distances measuring a larger spot. Accuracy of the sensor is not affected by the measurement distance.

Features and Benefits

• Non-contact temperature sensor, ideal for industrial, laboratory or benchtop applications • Simultaneous voltage and alarm outputs
• Built-in backlit display and controls
• Voltage output: 0 to 5 V dc, 1 to 5 V dc, or 0 to 10 V dc linear output for measured temperature
• Adjustable temperature range scaling
• Open collector alarm output with configurable setpoint and hysteresis
• Measures from 0 ºC to +1000 ºC accurately and consistently
• Fast response time – a fraction of a second
• IP65 rated

The mounting bracket 905-8777 provides fixed or adjustable mounting for aiming the sensor. The air purge collar 905-8770 helps stop dust and condensation from settling on the lens allowing the sensor to maintain accurate measurements.

Product Application Information

Materials such as paper, plastics, rubber, wood, tarmac, food, pharmaceuticals and organic matter can all be measured using the RS Pro infrared temperature sensor straight from the box with no need to configure any settings. Painted metal surfaces are also easy to measure. The small size of the RS Pro infrared temperature sensor makes it ideal for fitting in restricted spaces, such as between a wheel and disc brake. The temperature of the brake disc can be measured at either the rim or hub.

Measure Objects on a Conveyor

Gaps between objects on a conveyor can be ignored with the included Peak and Valley Hold function. The voltage output will ignore low or high readings for a chosen period, so the sensor does not display or output the higher or lower temperature if there is a gap.

Measure Objects in Ovens and Furnaces

The included Reflected Energy Compensation feature provides improved accuracy when measuring objects inside an oven or furnace, with the sensor positioned outside the hot environment and aimed in.
