IR thermometer targets process control
Marathon MM Series of infrared (IR) thermometers from Raytek is reportedly the first high-performance IR sensor platform of its kind for process control. Instrumentation provides continuous remote temperature monitoring, video surveillance, and documentation capabilities for a wide range of industrial applications.
Santa Cruz, CA—Enhanced monitoring and video recording are among the features of Marathon MM Series infrared (IR) thermometers from Raytek . Reportedly the first high-performance IR sensor platform of its kind for process control, the instrumentation provides continuous remote temperature monitoring, video surveillance, and documentation capabilities for a wide range of industrial applications.
Series offers a choice of through-the lens or laser sighting methods and incorporates live video feed into its data acquisition and sensor programming software to allow for active frame capture. It includes an advanced electro-optical design, digital electronics, and a user-friendly, push-button operator interface. Sensor can be set up for stand-alone operation or configured for multi-sensor network. Unit is housed in a sealed NEMA 4 enclosure that withstands most process environments.
Applications include steel and metals processing, glass bending, forming, tempering, annealing and sealing, paper processing, plastics processing and thermoforming, and semiconductor processing. Platform has a temperature range of -40 to 3,000 °C and consists of five models, each with a specific measurement wavelength and temperature range for low-, medium-, and high-temperature production monitoring. All sensors use identical installation hardware and include Raytek’s DataTemp Multidrop software.
