Smallest IRt/c

Exergen announces world's smallest non-powererd IRt/c temperature sensor -- 1,9 cm long and ,6 cm (.75" long and .25") in diameter

Micro Sensor is Ideally Suited for Applications such as Medical, Industrial, Printing and Others Where Thermal Management is Essential but Sensor Space is Limited

WATERTOWN, Mass., and ZIJTAART, the Netherlands, April 28, 2016 - Exergen Global, an award winning thermal solutions provider, announced today general availability of the world’s smallest non-contact temperature sensor. At just 19 mm (.75”) long and 6.4 mm (.25”) in diameter, the Micro IRt/c fits in the tight and small spaces where competitive devices simply cannot be mounted. The Micro IRt/c’s miniature size makes it an ideal thermal management solution for applications that include medical devices, food preparation and manufacturing, printing, plastics and others.

Despite its tiny size, the Micro IRt/c delivers the same unmatched accuracy, responsiveness and reliability that Exergen sensors are recognized for worldwide. The sensor provides repeatability within 0,01°C (0.02°F), accuracy to within ± 1% and response time of 50 milliseconds. It has a sensing range of 0 to 2476,5°C (0 to 1375.8°F).

“Industries worldwide are under constant pressure to increase the speed and quality of their offerings, and frequently need to do so with smaller-sized device footprints” said Frank Pompei, CEO of Exergen.  “Exergen’s Micro IRt/c provides a thermal solution for even the smallest devices, helping manufacturers increase the speed and quality needed to remain competitive, while ensuring safe and accurate equipment and device operations.”

The introduction of its Micro sensor is part of Exergen Global’s multi-pronged effort to expand sales and distribution of its offerings. The company also named Walther van Puijvelde to the newly created position of Director of Global Distribution and said it will begin selling an easy-to-install product line aimed at small- to mid-sized OEMs.
