Measuring the temperature of high temperature and molten metals is one of the most demanding applications for 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 incorrect 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.

“High Performance Series” – Infrared non-contact pyrometers with high optical resolution and double laser aiming for high temperature and molten metals.

The CSlaser 2M infrared thermometer was specifically developed for exact temperature measurements of metal surfaces. Its short measuring wavelength enables the precise measurement of metal temperatures and metal oxides.
The robust, one-piece IR thermometer can be easily integrated into a facility. The standardised two-wire interface guarantees the reliable transfer of the data as well as simple integration into a PLC. The IR thermometer features an innovative double laser sight for the exact selection of the measurement spot. With a variety of lenses it can be customised to a variety of applications.

CTlaser – Type: 05M / 1M / 2M – With their extremely short response time of 1 ms, these highly efficient infrared thermometers enable the monitoring of quick processes, measuring precisely and reliably even for the smallest measuring fields of up to 0.7mm.

Thanks to its innovative double laser sight, the robust, high quality stainless steel measuring head of the CTlaser also enables the exact selection of the measuring field from any distance. In addition, selectable analog outputs and various digital interfaces provide a high level of variability in the evaluation of the measured data. For use in high ambient temperatures the measuring head can be optionally fitted with a water cooling system or with a protective housing (Cooling Jacket Advanced).
