Newest LumaSense Pyrometer Provides Higher Accuracy in Harsh, High-Temperature Environments
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest addition to LumaSense Technologies' line of temperature-measurement devices is a digital-ratio, two-color pyrometer that allows industrial manufacturers to improve product quality and yield by more-accurately measuring extreme temperatures in the harshest environments.
The ISR 6 Advanced is a non-contact pyrometer that gives operators greater control over their processes and is well-suited for the steel and metals, silicon, glass and cement manufacturing industries. The sensor is applicable for temperature ranges between 600-3,000 degrees Celsius. This makes the device suitable for applications that require precise temperature measurement at very high temperatures such as induction heating, annealing, welding, forging, melting, sintering, or growing crystals.
Other key features that make the ISR 6 Advanced one of the most accurate pyrometers of its kind include a small spot size down to 0.7 mm, a response time of less than 2 milliseconds and a two-color method that uses adjacent wavelengths for temperature determination.
"Improving production quality and increasing production yield are always top priorities for any manufacturing, and precision is everything when it comes to maximizing process control to achieve those objectives," said Jeff Becker, vice president of marketing for LumaSense. "The ISR 6 Advanced was designed with that core principal in mind. Even the smallest piece of data can have a large impact on production, and the ISR 6 Advanced gives operators the precise details they need to make the right decisions during these processes."
In contrast to a conventional pyrometer, the ISR 6 Advanced's temperature measurement is largely independent of an object's emissivity and is unaffected by dust and other contaminants in the field of view. It also improves production quality by reducing the risk of false test results with its ability to automatically detect low signals. If needed, the pyrometer can be switched to 1-color mode and used like a conventional pyrometer.
