  • 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 PyroCube M is a version of the PyroCube specifically designed to measure the temperature of reflective metals at low temperatures.  Measuring the temperature of metals with an infrared pyrometer is a challenging application since metals normally have a low emissivity and do not emit enough infrared energy to make an accurate measurement.  IR sensors designed to measure metal temperature normally are designed to read a very narrow bandwidth of energy at short wavelength in order to make a more accurate measurement.  Even those instruments are typically limited to higher temperatures because of the greater amount of energy emitted at the higher temperature.  The PyroCube M is a short-wavelength sensor designed for measuring metals as cool as 50°C, with a very fast response time of 0.001 seconds and a very small measured spot size.

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.
