Miniature pyrometer with integrated electronics may be the industry's smallest

24 June 2010

Radir Raytek has introduced what it believes is the smallest fully functional, stand-alone infra red temperature sensor. The MI3 is a rugged, IP 65 stainless steel miniature pyrometer with integrated electronics that can be configured via an optional interface with large backlit LCD display, or on a PC via USB using software provided with the sensor.
 
The MI3 sensor can come with a separate communication module for use with standard industrial outputs - the MI3COMM communications box - which supports up to eight individually addressable sensor heads. For OEM applications, the sensing heads allow a direct digital interface to the host machine.


The MI3 provides all the functionality of the proven Raytek MI Series but with additional features such as a wide choice of sensing head temperature ranges (covering –40 up to 1650°C) and spectral responses and response times as fast as 20ms.
 
There's a choice of scalable 4-20mA and 0-10Vdc analogue outputs, or Type J, K, R or S thermocouple outputs, as well as an optional RS485 network interface.
 
Thanks to precision, high-resolution silicon optics, the MI3 sensors provide a range of optical resolutions (2:1, 10:1 or 22:1) at a very attractive price.

The MI3’s user-programmable, isolated alarm output is an easy way to achieve alarm and control redundancy or provide simple on/off control capabilities. It allows for local alarm capability, eliminating the need for separate limit switches or alarms.
