All IRt/c’s are self-powered devices, which rely on the incoming infrared radiation to produce the signal through thermoelectric effects.
Self Powered IRt/c's
- The most reliable non contact temperature sensors on earth
- No active electronics, so these passive devices don’t drift and can not fail
- Intrinsically Safe
- Fast Response time
- Signal emulates conventional thermocouple signal
The IRt/c is calibrated to match a conventional thermocouple at a specific temperature. By adjusting the calibration setting of the IRt/c the signal output (mVout) will be within 2% linear to match the conventional thermocouple at temperatures close to the calibration point.
