Pyrometer Optris CT 3M for Low Temperature Measurements of Metal
With its short measuring wavelength of 2.3 μm and a temperature range from 50 °C up to 1800 °C (122 °F to 3272 °F), the pyrometer Optris CT 3M, is ideal for low-temperature measurements of metals, secondary metal processing, metal oxides and ceramic materials. The quick response time of only 1 ms allows for problem-free use of the metal thermometer where fast processes are required.
The infared temperature sensor has a very small sensing head of 14mm in diameter and 28mm in length. This allows the sensor to be installed in applications where space is at a premium. The temperature sensor is also usable up to 85 °C (185 °F) ambient temperature without cooling. The separate electronics enclosure provides a full range of outputs and inputs as standard including Voltage, mA and Thermocouple.
The Optris CT 3M offers high variability with selectable analogue outputs and multiple digital interfaces. It features field-selectable analogue output options, including 0/4-20mA, 0-5 and 0-10 V, type K or J thermocouples, and an alarm. The programmable functional input allows users to set external emissivity, ambient temperature compensation, and reset hold functions. Additionally, it includes peak hold, valley hold, average, and an extended hold function with threshold and hysteresis.
For added convenience, the Optris CT 3M provides various plug-in options, including USB, RS485, RS232 interface, 2 optically isolated relay outputs, CAN-Bus, Profibus DP, and Ethernet. With its advanced features and functionalities, this temperature sensor is an excellent tool for professionals in various industries, providing accurate and reliable measurements for temperature-sensitive applications.

What is an Infrared Temperature Sensor?
Infrared (IR) temperature sensors emit an infrared energy beam, directed through a lens, to measure the temperature of a surface or object. The sensor then receives the reflected beam and converts the energy into an electrical signal, displaying the temperature reading in appropriate units.
What is IR Sensor Temperature?
An IR sensor temperature refers to the temperature measurement obtained using an infrared sensor. Infrared sensors detect and measure the infrared radiation emitted by objects to determine their temperature without direct contact.
