Affordable infrared instrument with ratio pyrometer features for multiple purposes including metal processing, vacuum processes and laser applications.
This new IGAR 6 infrared thermometer by LumaSense Technologies provides non-contact temperature measurement in ratio mode in a relative low temperature range.
The pyrometer measures using the ratio (2-color) method, in which two adjacent wavelengths are used for the temperature determination. This technique is advantageous compared to standard
1-color pyrometers because the measurement is largely independent of the object’s emissivity, dust and contaminants in the field of view do not impact measurements, and the measuring object can be smaller than the spot size.
The IMPAC IGAR 320 joins the Series 320 family of small, stationary, digital infrared thermometers and leverages highly accurate infrared technology to determine the temperature of a surface. This latest addition to the broad pyrometry portfolio of LumaSense provides an affordable ratio pyrometer with many mentionable features such as a 10 ms response time, built-in LED targeting light with thermal intensity alignment, integrated dirty window warning, and RS485 interface.
The temperature range of 300 to 1300 °C and compact size make the IGAR 320 pyrometer ideally suited for many different industrial applications. Sample applications include induction heating, hardening, welding, forging, brazing, soldering, vacuum processes, and laser applications.
