Non-contact infrared temperature sensors from Micro-Epsilon are being used on medium and high-frequency induction heaters to measure the temperature of metal components during heat treatment.

Cheltenham Induction Heating has purchased the Thermometer CTM1/M2 infrared temperature sensor for use across its range of induction heaters.

The Thermometers’ compact sensor heads enable the company to mount them in confined spaces on its heaters.

The separate controller can be mounted well away from the sensor head and from the induction heating coil, using the 2 or 3m cable provided.

The Thermometer CTM1/2 sensors measure process temperatures from 250 to 1,600C and so are suitable for use with metals, metal oxides, ceramics and composites.

The sensors benefit from double precision laser sighting and a 40:1 or 75:1 optical resolution.

Sensor response times are from 1ms.

The sensor weighs 40g and the controller weighs 420g.

The Thermometer CTM1/M2 can be used in ambient temperatures of up to 100C without any cooling required and has an automatic laser switch off at 50C.

The sensor measures at short wavelengths (1.0-1.6 micrometers), which minimises temperature-measurement errors on surfaces with low or unknown emissivity.

A range of accessories and optional extras that protect the sensor in harsh operating environments is available.

These include air-purging accessories, K or J type thermocouples outputs and a range of integrated digital communications interfaces, including Profibus DP, CAN open, USB, RS232, RS485 and Ethernet.
