Infrared temperature sensors are widely used throughout many industries and work environments to determine surface temperature.
Elevated temperatures are often the first sign of trouble for electrical equipment, circuits and building systems. A quick temperature check of key components and equipment can detect potential trouble areas and prevent catastrophic failures.
All matter emits energy in the form of heat. If there is a temperature difference between objects, including the surrounding environment, then this gradient can be measured and used.
Infrared temperature sensors emit an infrared energy beam focused by a lens on to a surface to detect the surface temperature. The reflected beam is received back in the sensor which converts the energy to an electrical signal that can be displayed in units of temperature.
The sensor compensates for ambient temperature variation to give an accurate temperature reading. Sensors for infrared temperature measurement provide reliable position detection of objects with high temperatures, such as in the steel or glass industries.
The sensors detect the infrared radiation emitted by the objects and convert them into an output signal.
If the detected temperature is above the set switching threshold, the switching output is set and the switching status of the LEDs is displayed.
The switching thresholds and output configurations can be set easily by means of the buttons and the display. During operation the display shows the current value measured.
Thanks to their robust housing and scratch resistant, high-quality precision lens, the sensors can be used in extremely harsh industrial environments.
There are several advantages to infrared temperature sensors, such as …
DBI Control have used the ifm TW7000 infrared temperature sensor in a job previously for a UV Mass Bottom Rim Coater, which is used to apply protective coatings to the bottom rim of both steel and aluminium beverage cans. This was later shipped, installed and commissioned in the Middle East.
