Wenglor OptoTemp

Wenglor has added the OptoTemp temperature sensor to its portfolio of photoelectronic sensors. The optic sensor can measure between -25°C and 350°C temperature using infrared radiation regardless of the material an object is made of and its state of aggregation.

The measurement of infrared radiation is quick and contactless, and the object itself is not influenced in any way. The sensor measures temperature with a spectral sensitivity of 8µm to 14µm within a measuring range of -25°C to 350°C. The measured value appears at the integrated, intuitively operable display and is read out via the outputs or the RS-232 port.

Thanks to two switching outputs and an analogue output, the sensor is suited for various measuring applications, for example, target versus actual value comparison and absolute measurement. The integrated laser alignment tool and a programmable emission factor make initial start-up quick and easy.
