The Optris CT 4ML is a new innovation from the German manufacturer of infrared temperature sensors and now allows precise measurement of metals at temperatures starting from 0°C and rising to 500°C. The short wavelength sensitivity of the sensor makes it suitable for metals, metal oxides, ceramics and other materials with unknown or changing emissivity. The CT 4ML is also of course suitable for many other materials too such as PET preforms and plastic injection moulded parts.
An additional advantage is the extremely fast response time of just 300μs, making this our fastest sensor and therefore ideal for high speed processes.
The sensor has the smallest sensing head available in the world at just 14mm diameter x 28mm long and allows the sensor to be installed in the applications where space is at a premium. The separate electronics enclosure provides a full range of outputs and inputs as standard including Voltage, mA and Thermocouple. It is also possible to incorporate an interface card which provides simple integration into your existing process control equipment. Options include Ethernet, Profibus, RS485. A USB interface is included as standard and can be used with PC based Compact Connect software or our IRMobile android app.Data Sheet Application Story
