Infrared Thermometer for Temperature Measurement of Plastic Foils and Glass Surfaces
The Optris CTlaser P7 infrared sensor is designed for precise temperature measurements in the production of thin plastic materials like polyurethane, polyether sulfone, polyethene terephthalate, Teflon, or cellulose triacetate. It can also be used for accurate temperature readings on glass surfaces.
The IR sensor features a dual laser aim that indicates the exact spot location and size, with a 1.6mm marking at any distance, but there are options to allow you to choose the most appropriate spot size for your application. Its temperature range is from 0° C to 710 °C, and it can operate in temperatures up to 85°C without requiring additional cooling.
The CTlaser P7 offers selectable analogue outputs and multiple digital interfaces, providing flexibility in usage. It includes peak hold, valley hold, average, and extended hold functions with adjustable thresholds and hysteresis. These settings can be easily configured using the USB programming kit (ACCTUSBK).
Field-selectable analogue output options include 0/4-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V, type K or J thermocouples, and alarm capabilities. Additionally, plug-in options are available for USB, RS485, RS232 interface, 2 optically isolated relay outputs, CAN-Bus, Profibus DP, and Ethernet connections.
The Optris CTlaser P7 model is designed to measure the temperature of thin plastic films in manufacturing processes. Many general-purpose sensors work in a wavelength range that makes films appear transparent to the sensor, in other words, it measures the temperature of the object behind the film. By operating in a carefully selected wavelength we can remove this issue.

Areas of Application
Due to the spectral region of 7.9 µm, the two-piece IR thermometer Optris CTlaser P7 is ideal for accurate temperature measurement during the production of thin plastic materials, e.g. foils made of polyurethane (PU), polyether sulfone (PES), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Teflon (PTFE) or cellulose triacetate (CTA). The temperature sensor is also ideal for the exact measurement of temperatures of glass surfaces.Application Story
What is a Thin Film Temperature Sensor?
An infrared (IR) thermometer for temperature measurement of plastic foils and glass surfaces is a device that uses infrared technology to measure the temperature of thin plastic foils and glass without physically touching them. It’s a non-contact method that can provide precise temperature readings. The IR temperature sensor typically has a dual laser aim for accurate spot location and size indication. It can be used in various industries, including manufacturing, to monitor and control the temperature of these materials.
