Accurate, rugged, and reliable infrared thermometer for non-contact temperature measurement on thin and thinnest glass sheets in ranges between 150 and 1100 °C.
- Temperature ranges between 150 and 1100 °C
- Measurement of ultra-thin glass sheets with less than 1 mm thickness
- Easy installation and maintenance due to compact, rugged IP65 stainless steel housing for harsh environments
- Multiple onboard digital and analog interfaces for direct and fast PLC communication
- Specially designed and coated high-end optics for high accuracy and excellent size of source effects
- Global support by locally available application engineers
The IN 6/78-L is a pyrometer especially designed for non-contact temperature measurements on the thinnest of glass surfaces. Its special 7.8 μm wavelength makes it possible to accurately and reliably measure glass sheets below 1 mm thickness (ultra-thin glass). As such, it sets new standards for stress-free sheet glass production on manufacturing lines all around the world.
The full digital core sensor design provides a wide temperature range with high accuracy. Its small form factor and robust design allows for easy integration into the process – even in harsh environments.
The IN 6/78 is equipped with specially designed and coated high-end optics, which reduce the effects of ambient reflectance and guarantee the best possible accuracy.
The version IN 6/78-L is equipped with optics with a better field of view for the measurement of small objects. The high-speed version IN 6/78-H has a shorter exposure time of only 30 ms and is suited for fast measuring tasks.
The pyrometer can be connected to a PC through an RS485 to USB connection. You can then use the InfraWin software to make parameter adjustments, get temperature details, log data, and further analyze your complete temperature processes.
