January 18, 2017 - Fluke Process Instruments has added four single-color and two-color pyrometers to the Endurance series. The series now covers measured temperatures from 50 °C to 3,200 °C. The manufacturer has enhanced the maximum optical resolution from 150:1 to 300:1, enabling measuring of smaller targets from a distance. A low-temp ratio pyrometer for demanding applications measures temperatures from 250 °C. The sensors feature galvanically isolated inputs/outputs and a stainless steel IP65 housing.
They withstand ambient temperatures up to 65 °C or up to 315 °C using cooling accessories. Application areas include primary and secondary metals manufacturing, carbon processing, silicon production, and now also foundries and welding, as well as rubber and thick plastics. The Endurance series offers a range of models with wide temperature ranges and different wavelengths for precise process data that will help manufacturers reduce reject rates, improve product quality and uniformity, maximize throughput, and minimize energy costs. The sensors operate with Power over Ethernet or DC power and interface to Ethernet, ProfiNet, and RS-485. A backlit rear-panel with tactile feedback allows for navigation. The PC-based Endurance software is designed to simplify configuration and deployment, and a built-in web server enables archiving of historical data for traceability, process troubleshooting and remote viewing. Various lens, sighting, and focus options are available, for example, an on-board camera for video sighting via Ethernet. A dirty lens alarm helps avoid unneeded periodic lens cleaning checks.
