Raytek Introduces Raynger 3i Plus Series Infrared Thermometer

Raytek introduced the Raynger 3i Plus Series infrared thermometer, designed in accordance with industry standards to meet process performance requirements in hot environments of 400-3000°C (752-5432°F). The portable Raynger 3i Plus IR thermometer is suited for use in high-temperature industrial applications such as iron and steel, metal refining, foundry and processing operations, ceramics, semiconductors and chemical and petrochemical furnaces, as well as heat treatment and power plants.

The Raynger 3i Plus Series offers high accuracy (±0.5% +1°C), high optical resolution, faster exposure/processing time and a large memory capacity, according to the company.  The thermometer features a rugged casing material that protects the unit from damage. A “red nose” heat-resistant warning detector and alarm reduces the risk of the sensor overheating. Large optical resolution and good distance-to-spot (D:S) ratio enable accurate measurement of temperature targets from longer distances. The red dot sighting feature offers users a precise indication of where the temperature is being measured.

The Raynger 3i Plus Series models 1M and 2M meet a range of process temperature detection and fault previewing requirements. Ease-of-use features include intuitive user-interface for easy parameter setup, ergonomically designed comfort grip, accurate targeting when high-temperature targets are not visible using laser sighting alone and rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries for longer operational cycles of 24 hours. The 3i Plus features can transfer data to PC or smartphone via USB or Bluetooth. A mobile application can be used as a temporary online thermometer.

Each 3i Plus thermometer includes Raytek DataTemp Windows PC software, which supports real-time communication, data storage, graphing and analysis, Lithium-ion battery, carrying case, mini USB port adapter, mini USB-to-jack converter for separate battery charging and operators manual.
