Short-Wavelength Low-Temperature IR Pyrometer for Metal
The Optris CT 4ML infared (IR) pyrometer allows precise measurement of metals at temperatures starting from 0°C and rising to 500°C. The short wavelength sensitivity of the IR pyrometer makes it suitable for metals, metal oxides, ceramics and other materials with unknown or changing emissivity.
The Optris pyrometer CT 4ML is also of course suitable for many other materials too such as PET preforms and plastic injection moulded parts. The Optris short-wavelength low-temperature pyrometers have an extremely fast response time of just 300μs, making this our fastest sensor and therefore ideal for high-speed processes.
The high speed temperature 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 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.Application Story

Areas of Application for the Pyrometer Optris CT 4ML
The IR pyrometer Optris CT 4ML has a measuring wavelength of 2.2 µm to 6.0 µm is ideal for the temperature measurements of metallic surfaces and composite materials in processing. Its low temperature range from 0°C to 500 °C makes the temperature sensor a popular measuring device for every kind of low-temperature measurement of metals.
What is an IR Pyrometer?
An IR pyrometer is a device used to measure temperature without making direct contact. It works by detecting and measuring the infrared radiation emitted by an object. By analysing the intensity of the infrared radiation, the pyrometer can determine the object’s temperature. An infrared pyrometer is commonly used in industrial applications for non-contact temperature measurement.
What is a High Speed Temperature Sensor?
A high-speed temperature sensor is a device designed to measure temperature with rapid response and sampling capabilities. They’re capable of capturing temperature readings at a fast rate, allowing for real-time monitoring of temperature changes. High-speed temperature sensors are often used in applications where quick and accurate temperature measurements are essential, such as in industrial processes, research, and development of high-speed systems.
