- High Speed Response Time - As Fast As 1 ms
- Spot Size as Small as 1.6 mm
- Temperature ranges from 0°C to 500°C
- 4-20mA Output
- Continuous LED sighting shows the position and size of the measured spot while readings are being taken
- Multilingual touch screen interface (optional)
The PyroCube is a non-contact infrared temperature sensor with built-in LED sighting. It has 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 related to the temperature, and the sensor uses this relationship to provide an accurate temperature measurement.
The PyroCube is suitable for measuring non-metals such as paper, thick plastics, food, rubber, electronic components, cable insulation, ceramics, textiles, painted surfaces among many others.
The PyroCube S series has a 10ms response time and the PyroCube F has an ultra fast response of 1ms.
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 analogue 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.
