February 7, 2019 – Process Sensors introduced precision portable infrared thermometers with unrivaled features and functionality for measurement, display and accuracy. The five-model Capella C3 Series, are all contained within cast metal housings that will stand up to the rigors of plant conditions.
The Capella C3 Series gives an operator the option to customize a handheld instrument for the task at hand. Through lens sighting and laser targeting light, 1-color or 2-color operation, manually focused optics, switchable serial interface, two display formats, several operating modes – all can be selected quickly and directly on the 2.6 pound device.
Several operating modes can be selected depending on the operator’s needs – a display mode with no data storage, an auto save mode triggered by one touch of a button, continuous measurement mode with data storage in < 1 ms, and an interval mode with definable measuring and pause times.
The 1- and 2-color Capella models boast a temperature range of 180° to 3300°C (356° to 5972°F) and response time of less than 1 ms. There are two backlit OLED display modes to choose from, aluminum cast body with rubber housing bumpers for protection and a tripod mounting thread for stationary hands-free operation. All device parameters are adjustable via 4 buttons and measurement parameters can be changed directly from the display without a menu call up. Data storage is simplified allowing access to up to 32,000 measured values including date, time, measuring parameters and measuring location designations with Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless data transmission. Serial interface is switchable to USB 2.0 for charging and data readout.
This series of handheld thermometers for measurement in the short-wave spectral range is perfect for metals, induction heating, semiconductor wafers, susceptor and molten silicon, furnace refractory, molten glass, welding, graphite, ceramics and medical applications.
