AMETEK Broadens Its Infrared Thermometer Line

Multi-mode ratio pyrometers for industrial metal heat treatment applications

Spot Thermometer

DRONFIELD, UK ??? Land Instruments has set new usability and capability standards for industrial non-contact infrared thermometers with the introduction of the SPOT R100 high-temperature, multi-mode thermometer.

The SPOT R100 thermometer uniquely combines five different operating modes, including ratio setting, two single wavelengths, a multi-mode setting and duo setting. Ratio setting mode was specifically designed for metal heat treatment applications that require high-accuracy temperature measurement as a vital component of overall process control and product quality.

The versatile SPOT R100 offers enhanced on-board processing capabilities, eliminating the need for a separate signal processing device.

The SPOT R100 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 can be achieved remotely over the internet via a dedicated web browser or proprietary SPOT Viewer software

In addition, the instrument has a built-in visual camera to aid with target alignment. It uses a patented green LED for sighting (no laser safety issues) to confirm spot size and focal length simply and accurately.

All versions of the SPOT thermometer offer a combination of Ethernet, Modbus, TCP, video and analogue inputs and outputs as standard. All expected measurement parameters, including Averaging, Peak Picking, Mode Master and Background Compensation, are standard on all models.

The SPOT R100 high-temperature thermometer is designed as a drop-in replacement for existing installed thermometers.

system4-to-spot-adapterNOTE: Among the many accessories available is “The System 4 to SPOT Adapter Kit” that enables one to install a Land SPOT Thermometer in a Land System 4 Water-Cooled Jacket.

This means that you can replace an existing System 4 Thermometer with a Land SPOT thermometer without having to replace any existing thermometer protection jackets or mountings.
