Infrared Temperature Sensors
Oct 2009KEYENCE Corp. of AmericaRequest Info
The FT series digital infrared sensors have been launched by Keyence Corp. of America for noncontact detection of surface temperatures ranging from 0 to 1350 °C. Measurement can be performed from distances of up to 3000 mm, enabling the sensor head to be mounted away from harsh environments. The optional air purge enclosure eliminates dust buildup, and the ergonomically designed amplifiers can be panel- or cabinet-mounted. Response time is 10 ms, and field of view is 1.5 mm. Analog output from 4 to 20 mA can be scaled to a user-defined range, and up to four sets of discrete upper- and lower-limit outputs and emissivities can be stored.
