AMETEK LAND is offering the SPOT series of fixed non-contact pyrometers designed with advanced integrated processing capabilities to make temperature measurement accurate, flexible, and easy.
Model variants allow users to select thermometer type, temperature range, spectral response and optical characteristics to suit applications from 50 to 1800 °C/ 122 to 3272 °F.
For drop and rotary forgers, and heat treaters, requiring temperature measurement at hammering, induction hardening, carburizing, plasma nitriding and CAL line positions, there are multi-wavelength ‘R’ models, single wavelength ‘M’ models, and ‘FO’ fiber-optic models, with small optic heads that allow access into the most difficult measure locations, are available.
The SPOT pyrometers make it possible to conduct precise temperature measurement to support consistent product quality and ensure that metals are imbued with the desired levels of strength and stability during forging and heat treatment.
Because all the necessary functions are built in, it is a stand-alone solution that requires no separate processor. SPOT can be powered either by 24-30 V DC or power-over-Ethernet. Its rear display and controls allow target viewing, temperature reading, and set-up through simple, menu-driven choices.
One of the major advantages of SPOT is its outstanding target alignment. It features a through-the-lens integrated camera with auto brightness and a patented, pulsed green LED to simplify measurement alignment on hot targets. SPOT also has a durable sapphire protection window that resists scratches and solvents and is easily cleaned with a soft cloth.
Users also benefit from SPOTViewer software, a Windows-based utility add-on that allows the user to connect, configure, and view data from a SPOT thermometer. The SPOTViewer software communicates with the instrument using Modbus TCP communications. It can be installed on a Windows-based PC and allows the user to configure, display and log data.
