Spe­cial­ist for hot sur­round­ings

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - THERMAL IMAGING & TESTING -

Sen­sor spe­cial­ist Bal­luff has de­vel­oped a new BTS in­frared tem­per­a­ture sen­sor with IO- Link in­ter­face and two switch­ing out­puts. It can mon­i­tor tem­per­a­tures be­tween 250 and 1250 °C even in in­ac­ces­si­ble or haz­ardous ar­eas, de­tect hot ob­jects in mo­tion and record tem­per­a­ture val­ues – all with­out con­tact, says the man­u­fac­turer.

This py­rom­e­ter in the rugged M30 stain­less steel hous­ing with IP67 pro­tec­tion, says Bal­luff, is the first in this form fac­tor to of­fer a mul­ti­func­tion dis­play with plain text in­for­ma­tion and au­to­matic dis­play ori­en­ta­tion like with a smart­phone.

In ad­di­tion to two switch­ing out­puts the py­rom­e­ter pro­vides an IO-Link in­ter­face for re­mote pa­ram­e­ter set­ting and di­rect data ex­change with the con­troller or con­trol panel. An ana­log 4...20 mA out­put is avail­able as an op­tion.

A va­ri­ety of set­ting pos­si­bil­i­ties and func­tions open up a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions for the user. Steel­works, foundries, forg­ing, the ce­ram­ics in­dus­try and glass­works are per­fect ex­am­ples of ap­pli­ca­tions, says Bal­luff.
