Calex Electronics introduces FibreMini pyrometer

December 1, 2016 –Calex Electronics introduced the FibreMini, a fibre-optic pyrometer with features that allow accurate temperature readings on metal surfaces in harsh applications.

The following features, provided as standard on all FibreMini models, make non-contact temperature measurement possible in difficult conditions:

  • Fibre optic sensing head withstands up to 200°C ambient temperature, making it ideal for mounting near furnaces.
  • Containing no electronics, the FibreMini sensing head is immune to electromagnetic interference in high-EMC applications such as induction heating.
  • Achieve accurate readings when measuring reflective objects in hot environments such as furnaces, with reflected energy compensation. On Modbus models, adjust this setting automatically on-the-fly using RS485 Modbus communications. 
  • Laser sighting light illuminates the measurement area, showing both the size and location of the measured spot.
  • Temperature display with data logging. A choice of 4-20 mA or RS485 Modbus outputs is available.
  • Fully configurable via touch screen.

A choice of optics for measuring small or large areas at short or long distances is available, as is a choice of temperature ranges from 250°C to 2000°C.
It can feed the sensing head through conduit and trunking, thanks to the slim, flexible fibre optic cable. This is available in lengths of 3, 5 or 10 metres. An optional air purge collar is available to help keep the lens clean.
