SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LumaSense Technologies, Inc. has introduced two multi-purpose infrared temperature sensors to its line of compact pyrometers. The IMPAC IS 320 and IGA 320 are the latest additions to LumaSense's broad portfolio of gas and temperatures sensing solutions, which include infrared thermometers, fiber optic sensors and gas measurement instruments, as well as pyrometers.
The IS 320 and IGA 320 sensors offer features such as small form-factor, digital and analog outputs, high-speed response times, exchangeable cable connections and LED sighting technology. Both pyrometers are ideal for a wide range of applications that require highly accurate non-contact temperature measurements including metal, ceramic or graphite processing plants.
"Think of these sensors as the Swiss Army Knives of pyrometers, because they can meet just about any mid-range temperature need that can be found in the most demanding environments," said Jeff Becker, global vice president of marketing. "Manufacturers are searching for ways to easily and cost effectively optimize production processes. Precision sensors like the IMPAC IS 320 and IGA 320, with their superior optics allow manufacturers to accurately understand temperature values that can ultimately result in the highest yields of the best quality products."
Both compact, stainless steel sensors are EMI safe, specifically designed for use in applications such as tempering, preheating, annealing, welding, forging and hardening. Built-in LED pilot lights allow plant engineers to easily align and focus the instrument to the measurement target. Enhanced optics allows areas or objects as small as 1.2 mm to be measured, and 2-millisecond response rate makes the sensors ideal for fast, high-dynamic processes such as sintering, melting, soldering and brazing.
In addition to the sensors' ruggedness and accuracy, the IS 320 and IGA 320 are easy to install with simple connection cables as opposed to fixed cables, as well as sub-ranging and adapted analog outputs that enable users to configure their instruments and easily connect pyrometers to PCs. Both the IS 320 and IGA 320 also include the InfraWin software for easy instrument set-up as well as intuitive graphical temperature displays.
