Raytek® launch Infrared Thermometer for industrial OEM applications

28 July 2009

The Raytek CM is a compact, integrated IR noncontact thermometer intended for continuous temperature monitoring in a wide range of industrial manufacturing processes.

This rugged, IP65 sealed, single-piece integrated sensor offers powerful features to handle nearly any temperature measurement requirement. Although small in size, the Raytek CM outperforms competitive temperature measurement sensors at nearly twice the price.  The sensor insures a consistent manufacturing process and allows tighter tolerances on heating processes, reducing heating costs while improving process throughput and product quality.

Designed for easy integration, the CM sensor can easily replace traditional contact probes with a J-type or K-type thermocouple output, or with a user-scaleable 0-5 volt output, if the application is susceptible to noise.

The Raytek CM includes precision, high-resolution silicon optics, providing excellent optical resolution at a very attractive price.  An RS232 digital interface allows the user to configure all programmable sensor variables via the powerful Raytek DataTemp® Multidrop software. These include a 24 volt DC alarm output triggered by target temperature or head ambient temperature; peak hold, valley hold or variable averaging signal processing; adjustable target emissivity settings; and adjustable window transmissivity setting. A built-in sensor health LED provides a convenient on-line indicator of the sensor's operating status and aids in troubleshooting initial sensor set up.

The Raytek CMs' remote configuration capability allows it to be configured for virtually any application, reducing installation and troubleshooting time, and streamlining data acquisition. This feature also eases troubleshooting when the sensor is located in a hostile or remote location. The Raytek CM sensor is designed to measure target temperatures ranging from -20°C to 500°C.  Its onboard electronics are protected by a rugged IP 65 stainless steel housing, allowing the sensor to function in ambient temperatures to 70°C without cooling.
