The cool way to detect hot objects
The sensor specialist Balluff has developed a new BTS infrared temperature sensor with IO-Link interface and two switching outputs. It can monitor temperatures between 250 and 1250 °C even in inaccessible or hazardous areas, detect hot objects in motion and record temperature values – all without contact. This pyrometer in the rugged M30 stainless steel housing with IP67 protection is the first in this form factor to offer a multi-function display with plain text information and automatic display orientation. The IO-Link interface, another unique feature, enables such things as parameterizing of the sensor remotely by the host controller or from the control panel. A variety of setting possibilities and functions open up a wide range of applications for the user. Ideal applications include foundries, forging, steel plants, the ceramics industry or glassworks.
