AMETEK Land, the specialist in non-contact temperature measurement solutions, will attend two major heat treatment shows this fall to demonstrate its innovative SPOT range of stand-alone infrared pyrometers for heat treatment applications.

Delegates visiting Heat Treat 2017, October 24-26 in Columbus, Ohio, USA and Härterei Kongress 2017, October 25-27 in Cologne, Germany, will see the SPOT fixed non-contact pyrometer that is designed with advanced integrated processing capabilities to make temperature measurement accurate, flexible and easy to use.

“We are looking forward to demonstrating our SPOT pyrometer at these two major heat treatment exhibitions,” notes Richard Gagg, Industry Manager – Metals for AMETEK Land. “The SPOT features the latest temperature measurement technology to ensure that heat treatment companies remain one step ahead of their competition by continuously optimising quality and output.”

SPOT model variants allow users to select thermometer type, temperature range, spectral response and optical characteristics to suit applications from 50 to 1800 °C/ 122 to 3272 °F. For heat treaters requiring temperature measurement at induction hardening, carburizing, plasma nitriding and CAL line positions, there are multi-wave length ‘R’ models, single wavelength ‘M’ models and ‘FO’ fibre-optic models, with small optic heads that allow access into the most difficult measure locations, are available.

As everything is built into the SPOT thermometer, it is a truly stand-alone solution that requires no separate processor. SPOT can be powered by either 24-30V DC or Power-over-Ethernet. Its rear display and controls allow target viewing, temperature reading and set-up through simple, menu-driven choices.

One of the major advantages of SPOT is its outstanding target alignment. It features a thru-the-lens integrated camera with auto brightness and patented, pulsed green LED to make measurement alignment much simpler on hot targets. SPOT also has a durable sapphire protection window that resists scratches and solvents and is easily cleaned with a soft cloth.

Users also benefit from SPOT Viewer Software, a Windows-based utility add-on, which allows the user to connect, configure and view data from a SPOT thermometer. The SPOT Viewer Software communicates with the instrument using Modbus TCP communications. It can be installed on a Windows-based PC and allows the user to configure, display and log data.

The technology can be configured locally via a simple, menu-driven interface. SPOT contains a web server allowing remote setup and viewing from any standard web browser.

Both Heat Treat 2017 (29th Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposition) and HK 2017 (Härterei Kongress / Heat Treatment Congress) are leading industry events for heat treating professionals and feature new technology, exhibits, technical programmes and networking.
