SANTA CLARA, USA: LumaSense Technologies, Inc. added the integrated ISR 6-TI Advanced to their IMPAC pyrometer and imaging portfolio for increased control and optimization of manufacturing processes in metals, glass, and other materials industries.
The ISR 6-TI Advanced is a true break-through by combining pyrometry with infrared imaging technology to produce "Relative" thermal images. "Relative" thermal images are produced by measuring the temperature of the center spot with a ratio pyrometer and using an infrared filter to show an auto-calibrated thermal image based on the highly accurate ratio pyrometer temperature reading.
The system is based on the proven ISR 6 Advanced pyrometer and a video camera that utilizes a short wavelength infrared filter. The resulting ISR 6-TI Advanced system operates in a short wavelength (around 1 μm) for accurate and reliable temperature measurements between 700 °C and 1800 °C.
The analog video output signal is converted to USB and fed to a PC using LumaSense's InfraWin software. The InfraWin software generates and shows a "Relative" thermal image from this signal. LumaSense's InfraWin software also provides temperature, data logging, and analysis features.
The ISR 6-TI Advanced paints a more-accurate picture for identifying potential issues before they lead to problems that impact process performance, a key benefit for materials manufacturers running heat-dependent processes.
