LumaSense Technologies adds new multi-purpose pyrometers to IMPAC Line that offer EMI immunity and high-speed response times.LumaSense Technologies, Inc. has introduced two multi-purpose infrared temperature sensors to its line of compact pyrometers. The IMPAC IS 320 and IGA 320 are the latest additions to its portfolio of gas and temperatures sensing solutions, which include infrared thermometers, fiber optic sensors, and gas measurement instruments, as well as pyrometers.

The IS 320 and IGA 320 sensors offer features such as small form-factor, digital and analog outputs, high-speed response times, exchangeable cable connections, and LED sighting technology. The company says both pyrometers are ideal for a wide range of applications that require highly accurate non-contact temperature measurements including metal, ceramic, or graphite processing plants. 

“Think of these sensors as the ‘Swiss Army knives’ of pyrometers, because they can meet just about any mid-range temperature need that can be found in the most demanding environments,” said Jeff Becker, global vice president of marketing. “Manufacturers are searching for ways to optimize production processes easily and cost effectively. Precision sensors like the IMPAC IS 320 and IGA 320, with their superior optics allow manufacturers to understand temperature values that can ultimately result in the highest yields of the best quality products.”  

Both compact, stainless steel sensors are EMI safe, specifically designed for use in applications such as tempering, preheating, annealing, welding, forging, and hardening. Built-in LED pilot lights allow plant engineers to align and focus the instrument easily to the measurement target. Enhanced optics allows areas or objects as small as 1.2 mm to be measured, and 2-millisecond response rate makes the sensors ideal for fast, high-dynamic processes such as sintering, melting, soldering, and brazing.
