Water cooling for infrared miniature temperature sensors

With the latest system expansion, MI3100 pyrometers from Raytek keep a cool head even in high-temperature applications. The new water-cooled stainless steel housing extends the ambient temperature tolerance to 180 °C. Delivery includes an air purge collar. With 35 mm in diameter and 73 mm in length, the housing can be easily integrated even in applications where space is limited. The sensor series provides high versatility and precision. Two spectral models each cover a wide temperature range of 500 - 1,800 °C (1 µm) and 250 °C - 1,400 °C (1.6 µm). An integrated laser sighting facilitates positioning and aiming. Modbus, Profibus, Ethernet, und Profinet communication boxes are available for connection to the control level, as well as a model with four galvanically isolated analog outputs. Up to eight measuring heads can be connected to a single MI3 communication box. Digital communication between sensor and box and the patented automatic head detection enables plug and play. The shortwave MI3100 pyrometers are particularly suitable for use in secondary metal working and processing, and for manufacturers of ovens and heating systems.Figure: A water-cooled sensor head housing extends the application range for MI3 infrared temperature measurement systems in hot environments with ambient temperatures up to 180 °C

Raytek GmbH in profile
Raytek GmbH develops and produces infrared sensors under the brands of RAYTEK and IRCON for non-contact temperature measurement within a range from -50 to +3,500 °C. The sensors allow for quick and accurate measurements of surface temperatures without touching the medium. Typical applications include steelworks, glassworks, cement plants, and plastics manufacturing. The Raytek product range includes fixed infrared sensors, infrared linescanners, and thermal imagers. All the devices are suitable for fixed installation in plants and machines and can be integrated into process-monitoring systems via industry-specific interfaces.

Raytek GmbH in Berlin is the European headquarters of the Raytek Corporation, based in Santa Cruz (US), and is responsible for marketing, sales, and service in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Raytek Corporation has almost 50 years experience in infrared temperature measurement and employs approx. 200 people worldwide. In addition to its headquarters in the US, its European headquarters in Berlin, Germany, and a branch in China, regional offices and numerous authorised distributors around the globe ensure customer proximity, rapid service, and individual consultation on site. Raytek is a Fluke company. A sister company in the Fluke Group is DATAPAQ, a world leader in the manufacture of temperature measurement and analysis systems for all types of industrial heating processes.
