Digital non-contact infrared temperature sensor

Keyence introduces the FT series infrared sensor family. The ability to measure IR from distances of up to 3 m (10 ft.) means the sensor head can be mounted far away from harsh environments. An optional air purge enclosure can eliminate dust buildup, increasing sensor stability and decreasing process downtime.

Keyence introduces the FT series infrared sensor family. The ability to measure IR from distances of up to 3 m (10 ft.) means the sensor head can be mounted far away from harsh environments. An optional air purge enclosure can eliminate dust buildup, increasing sensor stability and decreasing process downtime. The ergonomically designed amplifiers can be panel mounted for easy temperature viewing and setup, or cabinet mounted on a DIN rail. The sensors feature a broad IR spectrum and wide temperature sensing range from 32 to 2,462 °F (0 to 1,350 °C). The high-speed response of 10 ms makes the FT the fastest in its class, according to the company; combined with an incredibly fine 1.5 mm field of view, the FT-H10 sensor is said to be perfect for thin, fast moving targets including heat seals, hot melts, heat-treated, or hot formed parts.
