Handheld pyrometer designed to measure any target

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Micro-Epsilon UK has released the thermoMETER P20 series of low cost, handheld laser thermometer devices that are claimed to measure temperatures from 0 to 2000°C. The series includes four wavelength versions for optimum measurement of any material or object, including molten metal, sheet metal and other metal structures such as steel girders.

The standard P20 version measures temperatures from 0 to 1300°C at an optical resolution of 120:1, across a spectral range of 8 to 14µm for use on a variety of materials. The P20 M1 measures temperatures from 650 to 1800°C at an optical resolution of 300:1, at a specific wavelength of 1.0µm to suit metals.

The P20 M2 measures temperatures from 385 to 1600°C at an optical resolution of 300:1, at a specific wavelength of 1.6µm, enabling accurate measurements at a safe distance. The P20 M5 measures temperatures from 1000°C to 2000°C at an optical resolution of 150:1, at a specific wavelength of 525nm to suit molten metals.

The devices’ internal data memory can store up to 2000 measurement values, which can be downloaded via a USB interface to the IRConnect software. The software also provides an oscilloscope function that is said to record up to 20 measurement values/second for real time monitoring of processes.
