The Model IL in-line non-contact, infra-red sensor from Dwyer Instruments replaces traditional contact temperature probes. This compact, low-cost, integrated sensor is designed for easy integration into a four-wire system, and can easily replace contact probes with a J-type thermocouple or with a 0.5-V output. Protected by a rugged NEMA 4 stainless steel housing, the instrument functions in ambient temperatures to 70C (160F) and can measure target temperatures ranging from 0C to 500C (32F to 932F). Distance-to-target ratio is 4:1 optics at 90% energy. Suitable applications are found in the plastics, primary and secondary metal, pulp and paper, glass, semiconductors, petrochemical, textiles and food processing industries.
