Measuring the temperature of high temperature and molten metals is one of the most demanding applications for and sensor technology. The Optris range of infrared non-contact temperature sensors has however been designed to overcome the pitfalls often encountered.
Short wavelength sensors ensure that low emissivity materials are handled more easily, providing more accurate measurements that are less dependent on correct or variable emissivity.
High quality, high resolution optics provide small measuring spots even at larger distances. This allows precise measurement whilst the sensor is protected from the arduous conditions within the process.
