Process Sensors Corporation introduced the latest addition to its unparalleled selection of non-contact infrared temperature sensors, the PSC-SSS-PM Series. These versatile miniature models boast features that are a dramatic improvement over their predecessors. There are two models - the PSC-SSS-PM General Purpose version and the PSC-SSS-PM 2.2 High Temperature version to choose from.
The new miniature sensors feature 4 to 20 mA or RS-485 Modbus outputs, depending on the model selected. Up to 247 sensors may be installed on each Modbus network. The PSC-SSS-PM Series sensors simplify set up for alarm relays and adjustments, replacing the need for additional PC boards and software.
An optional touch screen display is generously sized and provides a bright display of the measured temperature and allows full and simple configuration of the IR sensor including alarms. The display changes color to provide immediate alert to alarm conditions. A graph display feature illustrates the history of a measured temperature. Data logging to an optional MicroSD Card is available with the touch screen display, enabling the operator to select a sample rate and the number of samples to be taken, and to schedule a data logging start time.
Compact and rugged, the sensor heads are constructed of stainless steel and have a full range of unique companion accessories that enable accurate non-contact temperature measurement of inaccessible or moving objects in hot environments (up to 356°F) accurately and consistently. Their space saving design is easy-to-wire and simple to integrate into existing data acquisition systems. The PSC-SSS-PM is resistant to interference from movement of sensing head cables and ideal for mounting on robotic arms. Sensor cable lengths can be extended to 30 meters.
Offering a choice of temperature ranges from -20° to 2000°C, the IR sensors feature adjustable emissivity settings on all models. The general purpose models are ideal for a wide range of target materials including paper, plastics, food, coated metal, ceramics and painted surfaces, as well as liquids and powders. The short wavelength, high temperature models improve the accuracy of readings on reflective materials such as steel and other metal surfaces. Choices of optics, including narrow options for long-distance measurements of high temperature targets, are available.
Process Sensors Corporation offers the widest range of high performance, non-contact infrared temperature sensors, thermal imaging / thermal line scanning systems, and blackbody calibration sources to meet the most demanding on-line industrial process applications as well as sensitive low cost OEM performance requirements.
