USB pyrometer makes benchtop infrared temperature measurement accessible

08 November 2015

The PyroMiniUSB, a new USB infrared temperature sensor from Calex Electronics Ltd, makes non-contact temperature measurement in benchtop, laboratory and education applications easier and more accessible.

This low-cost miniature sensor measures surface temperature with 1°C accuracy and with a near instantaneous 125ms response time.

The intuitive, touch-friendly software provides a temperature display and a scrolling temperature chart. No configuration is necessary when measuring most non-reflective materials, however advanced software options also allow a range of partially reflective materials to be measured. Data can be logged to an Excel-compatible text file.

Integration with third-party software is straightforward. The open Modbus protocol allows direct communication with the PyroMiniUSB sensor via a virtual COM port.

The sensor is built as solidly as an industrial pyrometer, with a sealed stainless steel housing that can be fixed into position with the supplied mounting nut and optional mounting brackets.

A choice of wide-angle or narrow optics allows large or small targets to be measured at short or long distances.
