EC: Raytek MI3 Infrared Sensor
Process sensors, other: Raytek Corporation MI3 Infrared Sensor. The Raytek MI3 is a powerful two-piece infrared temperature measurement system with miniature sensing head and separate communications electronics. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) Award winner.
The Raytek MI3 infrared temperature sensors represent a new generation of performance and innovation in continuous noncontact temperature monitoring for a broad range of OEM applications and manufacturing processes. The MI3 infrared pyrometer is a two-piece system with a miniature sensing head and separate communications electronics. The miniature sensing head can be installed in any system and outperforms much larger sensors, making the Raytek MI3 the best valued IR temperature sensor in its class.
The OEMMI3 version allows direct digital communication with the host machine controller without the need for an additional communication box. The innovative multiple sensing head interface, which can support up to eight individually addressable heads per communication box, reduces sensor cost, simplifies sensor installation and applications troubleshooting, and provides the lowest cost per measurement point. The MI3 is also available in a convenient DIN-rail mountable package with USB and RS485 digital communications.
