MILFORD, Mass., Aug. 19, 2011 — Process Sensors Corp. has added the improved high-accuracy, low-temperature Metis Model MB35 sensor series to its line of precision noncontact infrared pyrometers.
With an operating temperature range starting at 35 °C, the pyrometers use a lead selenide detector with filtered spectral response from 2 to 5 µm. Applications include CO2 laser heating, composites and metal surfaces above 35 °C. The emissivity of metallic surfaces decreases with shorter wavelengths, so the devices offer better performance than those with a longer-wavelength response, according to the company. Other advantages are smaller spot sizes, fast response times and digital signal processing that provides for wide temperature ranges.
The Metis series infrared pyrometers are versatile instruments offering two solutions for aiming: see-through optics and laser. There is also a fixed-focus version for extremely small spot sizes. Optical and electronic parts are housed in a rugged IP65 extruded aluminum casting.
The multifaceted self-contained Model MB35 offers adjustable focus; digital RS-232, RS-485 or Profibus communication interfaces; analog 4- to 20-mA outputs; and 3-ms response speed.
Control features and functions, recording and storing of graphics or tables, and pyrometer settings can be configured via a PC using PSCWin software. Available accessories include a swivel base mount, water-cooling jacket and air purge, scanning mirror and an adjustable mounting bracket.
