Calex PyroCube P Thin film plastic temperature measurement

The PyroCube is an infrared pyrometer with an extremely fast response time and a very small measurement area size suitable for Thin Film Plastic Temperature Measurement.
Part Number: PyroCube P
Call for pricing

Application

The PyroCube P measures the temperature of thin film plastics from 80°C to 350°C.

Thin-film plastics are often highly transmissive to infrared radiation, which makes them very difficult to measure with most sensors.

The PyroCube P uses a special measurement wavelength of 3.4 µm to accurately measure the temperature of many types of plastic film that cannot be measured with general-purpose sensors, including polyolefin, polyamide, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, nylon, PVC, acrylic, polyurethane and polycarbonate.

An extremely fast 10 ms response time, small measurement area and continuous LED sighting make the PyroCube suitable for even the most challenging applications.

Features

  • Temperature range 80°C to 350°C
  • Measures an area as small as 12 mm
  • 10 millisecond response time
  • Continuous LED sighting shows the position and size of the measured spot while readings are being taken
  • Multilingual touch screen interface (optional)

Ordering Information

The PyroCube P sensor may be ordered with or without the PM030 touch screen interface.

Display Options

Model PM030 Optional touch screen terminal for indication, configuration, data logging and alarm outputs. Sensor is available with or without display.

PM030 Touch Screen Interface

Provides temperature display, alarm outputs, sensor configuration and data logging for one PyroCube sensor.

 

Panel Mounting Kit

The Panel Mounting Kit (PMK) is an ABS plastic assembly that allows the PM030 touch screen interface to be fitted to a panel.

 

Mounting Bracket

The L-shaped fixed mounting bracket offers a rigid support for the sensor and allows fine rotational adjustment about one axis.

Protective Window

The protective calcium fluoride window helps prevent contamination and damage of the PyroCube sensor’s lens.

Air Purge Collar

Helps keep dust, moisture and contaminants away from the lens. Use clean (instrument) air.

Airless Dust Protector

Helps keep dust away from the lens. No air supply is required.

 

Extension Cable

5 metre long cable for PyroCube sensor, fitted with connectors at both ends.

Right Angled Mirror

Reflects the PyroCube sensor’s field of view by 90 degrees, making it easier to install in tight spaces. Includes a protective calcium fluoride window to keep dust from settling on the mirror and lens.

Water Cooling Jacket

Allows the sensing head to be installed where the ambient temperature is above 50°C. Includes an air purge inlet to stop condensation from forming on the lens. Please note that the sensor’s output cable is rated to 80°C.

PID Controllers

The analogue output of the PyroCube is compatible with any of our indicating controllers for closed-loop PID control.
