Infrared Temperature Sensor
April 11, 2011
Gold Series single-wavelength infrared temperature sensors from Williamson Corp. provide up to 0.25% of reading measurement accuracy for monitoring and controlling product quality and process productivity. Configurable for a multitude of applications where devices such as thermocouples and RTDs would be inaccurate, too slow or difficult to use, they measure a target’s temperature without contact, making them ideal for high-temperature environments, moving targets and fast response times. Gold Series infrared sensors measure the amount of energy emitted by an object’s surface, and then convert this signal into a temperature value between -40° and 4500°F. Each model can be used as a stand-alone transmitter with a choice of inputs, outputs and alarms. Interface modules, PID controllers and PC software programs are available.
