Compact Industrial Infrared Temperature Sensor for OEM Applications
The inexpensive IR pyrometer is perfectly suited for OEM solutions. The Optris CS TC LT15 low cost temperature sensor has a high-speed measurement, wide temperature measuring range, adjustable emissivity and robust design.
The robust stainless steel housing is just 12mm diameter x 87mm long and is supplied with a length of cable. The IR temperature sensor output is selectable, either a scalable 0-10V or a type K thermocouple output.
Although low in cost, the Optris CS infrared temperature detector has a wide infrared temperature sensor range of -40°C to +1030°C and a fast response time of just 25 milliseconds.
Optical resolution is a handy 15:1 so you can easily aim the sensor at objects in the knowledge the spot size is not too large. Also included is adjustable emissivity, a feature not often found on sensors at this price level and fundamental to taking accurate measurements.

Areas of Application for the Industrial Infrared Temperature Sensor
The industrial pyrometer Optris CL LT can be used in many areas of application. It can be used for temperature control in plastics production, like thermoforming foil.
The compact pyrometer is also used for preventive electrical maintenance since in most cases devices heat up before an error occurs. By using an infrared temperature sensor, potential outages can be detected and fixed.
Optris CS LT 15 Additional Information & Software
Optris CT LT 15 industrial infrared temperature sensor is also supplied with the free Optris PIX Connect software. This software is necessary to document and analyse temperature measurement data for your application. The licence-free software is compatible with all netbooks, notebooks, and PC systems via Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and 8.
Calibration and a wide range of accessories are also available to purchase for the IR temperature sensor.
What is an Infrared Temperature Sensor?
An infrared temperature sensor, also known as an infrared thermometer or pyrometer, is a device used to measure temperature without making physical contact with the object being measured. It operates based on the principle of detecting and measuring the infrared radiation emitted by an object.
Infrared temperature sensors work by using a lens to focus the infrared radiation emitted by the object onto a detector. The detector then converts the infrared radiation into an electrical signal, which is further processed to determine the temperature of the object. The temperature reading is typically displayed on a digital screen.
These sensors are commonly used in a variety of applications, such as industrial processes, HVAC systems, food preparation, and medical diagnostics. They are particularly useful for measuring the temperature of objects that are difficult to access or moving quickly.
What is an Infrared Temperature Detector?
An infrared temperature detector is a device that uses infrared technology to measure the temperature of an object or surface without physical contact, enabling non-invasive and accurate temperature measurements in various applications.
