LATEST PRODUCT INNOVATIONS

Limited space: Smallest infrared temperature sensor in the worldIntroduction of the world’s smallest non-contact temperature sensor. At just .75” (19mm) long and .25” (6.4mm) in diameter

Harsh environment: extreme sensor that protects it from extreme vibrations, shifts in pressure

The extreme sensor delivers accurate temperature measurement in severe temperature, weather, and other environmental conditions. It maintains unmatched accuracy at temperatures ranging from -50 to 1200 °F 

Customized solution: The Reflective Cone (according to our Sensoranics methodology)

The Reflective Cone is a custom-designed tool that works with our IRt/c infrared sensors to provide the industry’s most accurate surface temperature readings

APPLICATION NOTE: GRINDING USED PLASTICS IN GRANULATION MACHINES FOR RECYCLING

A significant amount of heat is created when PET bottles or other used plastics are ground for recycling using a granulation machines. When operators increase the granulation grinding wheel speed in order to maximize machine throughput, the temperature of the ground plastic increases further. The heat that is generated during this process must be measured and controlled to prevent the plastics from melting and blocking, or perhaps even destroying, the machine. A good control system will find the right balance between the operating speed and the temperature of the plastic. Read More...

APPLICATION NOTE: MEASURING BLOOD TEMPERATURE IN PERFUSION SYSTEMS

When supplying blood to patients it is essential that the blood’s temperature is carefully warmed to 37°C to ensure patient safety and wellbeing. Blood must be warmed to this temperature prior to infusion, because, depending on its source, the blood can be at room temperature, refrigerated or any temperature in between. Blood must be warmed to this temperature prior to infusion, because, depending on its source, the blood can be at room temperature, refrigerated or any temperature in between. If the infused temperature is too low or too high, the risk of hypothermia or hyperthermia increases, presenting possible complications or even patient shock. Read More...

TECHNICAL APPLICATION NOTE: CURING SYSTEMS

When using infrared temperature sensors (IRt/c) in curing systems there are three common challenges that you should consider: 1. During the curing process, the intense heat from the curing lamps conducted to the sensor area can cause the sensor to exceed its specified body temperature limit of 212°F, which, in turn, can cause the sensor to fail. 2. When power to the entire machine is shut off after it has been operating normally for some period, residual heat from the curing lamps and associated components is hot enough to cause the sensor to exceed its body temperature limit. 3. When curing lamps are positioned closely together, they may restrict the sensor’s view of the target and may increase the probability of the sensor signal being influenced by a partial view of the hot lamps. The result is an excessively high temperature indication for a few seconds when the lamps are off and no target is in the view. In order to achieve optimal ROI and operational efficiency in processes that require curing systems, it is ideal to employ a cost-effective IRt/c sensing system. These systems require no calibration, no operator attention, can withstand abuse in the field, and can be easily replaced if needed. Following are solutions to the three most common challenges that occur when employing an IRt/c sensor in a curing system.
