Precise infrared sensors with laser sighting

The infrared temperature sensors CT Laser offer high performance measurement with integrated laser aiming. Unlike other IR thermometers with a single laser pointer that denotes the centre of the measuring spot, the CT Laser gives exact spot diameter at any point in the measurement range. This innovative feature prevents measurement errors due to misalignment to be greatly reduced.

Features
  • Innovative IR sensors with laser sighting
  • Temperature ranges from -50 °C to +3000°C
  • Real spot size marking

Infrared software Compact Connect included

The temperature analysis software Compact Connect has been developed specifically for the thermoMETER series of temperature measurement sensors. It allows extensive documentation and analysis of temperature measurement data, as well as configuration and saving of the sensor parameters. It is licence-free and included in every sensor shipment.

Klapper_thermoMETER-CT-Laser-Glass_500x250

The thermoMETER CT Laser GLASS has been specifically designed for accurate temperature measurement of glass targets. In particular thin walled glass containers, bottles, light bulbs, vehicle glass, solar PV cells and thin sheet glass can be measured accurately. The measurement wavelength of 5µm minimises errors from heat sources behind or surrounding the glass target.

With different models in the range, the user can select operating temperature ranges from 100°C to 1600°C, spot sizes from 1mm and response times from 10ms

Klapper_thermoMETER-CT-ratio_500x250

The CTRatioM1/M2 ratio pyrometer provides a measuring range of 250 °C to 3000 °C at a maximum ambient temperature of 200 °C without cooling and is primarily used in metal processing applications. Furthermore, it is largely insensitive to dust, vapors or dirty viewing windows. The pyrometer even measures reliably when the optical measuring path is dampened up to 95% by dust, smoke or vapors.

Features
  • Measuring ranges (°C): 250 to 3000
  • Optical resolution 38:1; 50:1; 100:1
  • Spectral range 0.8 to 1.75µm
  • Insensitive to changes of the emission, due to the ratio principle
  • Fibre optics, therefore passive sensor head
  • Single- or two-channel use
  • Resistant to electromagnetic influences
  • Very short acquisition time of 1 ms
  • Insensitive to dust or steam
  • Up to 200°C ambient temperature without cooling
  • Output options: 0/4 - 20mA, USB
Klapper_thermoMETER-CT-Laser-M5_500x250

The thermoMETER CT Laser M5 has been specifically designed for accurate temperature measurement of metals surfaces and molten metals between 1,000°C and 2,000°C. The short measurement wavelength of 525nm reduces errors from emissivity changes to a minimum.

With an optical resolution of 150:1, a small spot size can be achieved at long distances, enabling the sensor to be mounted away from the hot target environment. The sensor has an operating temperature range of +85°C however for hotter environments, accessories such as the water cooled housing can be supplied.
