The Spot R100 high-temperature infrared thermometer from Ametek’s Land Instruments unit combines five different operating modes and offers enhanced on-board processing capabilities, eliminating the need for a separate signal processing device. The operating modes include ratio setting, two single wavelengths, a multi-mode setting and duo setting. The ratio setting mode was specifically designed for metal heat treatment applications that require high-accuracy temperature measurement for overall process control and product quality.
The thermometer features a simple user interface for local setup and configuration, including spot size and focus distance, live target temperature, emissivity, alarms, and measurement range. Configuration also can be achieved remotely. It also has a built-in camera to aid with target alignment, and offers a combination of Ethernet, Modbus, TCP, video and analogue inputs and outputs. All expected measurement parameters, including averaging, peak picking, mode master and background compensation, also are standard.
