  • Temperature Ranges from 50°C to 500°C
  • Measured Spot as Small as 0.7 mm
  • Response Time as Fast as 10 ms
  • Continuous LED Sighting Shows the Position and Size of the Measured Spot while Readings are being Taken
  • Multilingual Touch Screen Interface (optional: contact IOThrifty for details)

The PyroCube is a family of non-contact infrared temperature sensors with built-in LED sighting. They have an extremely fast response time, and can precisely measure the temperature of a very small area. The continuous LED sighting illuminates the position and size of the measurement spot while readings are being taken, without affecting the accuracy of the measurement.

The sensor works by detecting the infrared radiation emitted from a surface as a result of its own temperature. The amount of radiation emitted is measured by the PyroCube and converted to an accurate temperature measurement.

Two base models of the PyroCube are available.  One has a spot size of 0.7mm at a distance of 40mm from the target, the other a spot size of 1mm at 100mm from the target. Both models are available with or without a touch screen interface.

Applications for the PyroCubeXS include measuring individual electronic component temperatures on a circuit board, and plastic welding where the seam is very narrow.

Optional PM030 Touch Screen Interface Module
The PM030 is an optional multilingual touch screen interface module for the PyroCube sensor. The PyroCube can be used with or without the optional PM030. It functions as a standalone temperature indicator, alarm unit and configuration tool, and a selectable analog output allows it to be connected to further instrumentation.

All the settings of the PyroCube sensor are adjustable via the built-in touch screen interface. When an optional MicroSD Card is inserted into the PM030, the system functions as a fully-configurable temperature data logger.

Field of View Diagrams
The given measured spot size contains 90% of the energy detected by the sensor. We normally recommend the target is at least twice as large as the given measured spot for maximum accuracy. Accuracy specifications are valid up to the maximum distances shown.
