Infrared Pyrometer Features Thermal Imaging

LumaSense Technologies, Inc. added the integrated ISR 6-TI Advanced to its IMPAC pyrometer and imaging portfolio for manufacturing processes in metals, glass and other materials industries. The ISR 6-TI Advanced combines 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 ratio pyrometer temperature reading.

The system is based on the 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 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, which generates and shows a "relative" thermal image from this signal. LumaSense's InfraWin software also provides temperature, data logging and analysis features.
