NEW Single & Multi-Waveband Models

Ametek Land spot-230

Pittsburgh PA, USA  — AMETEK Land are pleased to announce the launch of two new SPOT Infrared Thermometers to add to the exciting range with innovative design and advanced integrated processing capability.

The new models are the M210, a single wavelength thermometer (2.3 µm) which measures from 50 to 1100 °C / 122 to 2012 °F and the R210, a ratio or 2 color thermometer with a measurement range of 125 °C to 1100 °C/ 257°F to 2012 °F (effective wavelengths of 2.1 µm and 2.4 µm).

These new models complement the current SPOT thermometer range and utilising the same award winning design features as the R100 allows a temperature range from 50 °C to 1800 °C (122 to 3272 °F) across the three wavelength models in the range.

The SPOT 210 models wide temperature range and high accuracy make it the ideal solution for multiple industrial applications including cold steel rolling lines and heat treatment operations.

The five selectable modes enable SPOT R210 to provide highly accurate temperature measurements by selecting one of the following:

  • Mono 1 (2.1 µm short wavelength)
  • Mono 2 (2.4 µm short wavelength)
  • Ratio/2 Colour (both detectors used in a ratio mode)
  • Duo (uses Mono 2 at low temperatures and Mono 1 at higher temperatures)
  • Multi (uses Mono 2 at low temperatures and seamlessly transfers to Ratio mode at higher temperatures).

The second addition to the family is the SPOT M210, a single wavelength thermometer utilising short wavelength 2.3 µm spectral response and providing high accuracy readings within the range of 500 °C to 1100 °C (122 °F to 2012 °F). It is ideal for low and uncertain emissivity metals measurements.

“These are very exciting developments as we further extend our SPOT family of thermometers’ measurement capabilities,” explains Richard Gagg, Global Product Manager: Infra-red at AMETEK Land.

“With R210, this is the equivalent of five different thermometers in one, making it extremely flexible as well as user friendly. Heat Treaters processing many different materials for their clients have the advantage of being able to choose the measurement mode that works best for that process.

“When starting a new customer job, they can simply change operating modes if necessary. The sister M210 thermometer opens up huge opportunities for measurements over a wide temperature range of 50 to 1100 °C (122 °F to 2012 °F), while operating at a short 2.3 µm wavelength.”

SPOT thermometers from AMETEK Land are designed for simple installation, configuration and flexible design. All processing functions are integrated into a single sensor, making them suitable for use in a wide range of industrial applications from cement, steel production and metal forging to heat treating.

Each SPOT thermometer features a sapphire protection window, resistant to scratches, heat, solvents and acids. As standard, each SPOT thermometer has multiple interfaces, digital and analog, providing many choices of connectivity. In addition, precision mirror optics eliminate chromatic aberrations. SPOT is powered by either 24 VDC or Power over Ethernet.

A popular feature of the range is the built-in web server, enabling the sensor to be viewed and configured from any standard web browser over an Ethernet connection. No setup software or special cable is required, so you will never need or lose them.

SPOT thermometers feature an integrated keypad and screen, allowing for easy local setup and alignment by one person. The pyrometers do not need removing from their protection mountings to change focus.

SPOT thermometers also feature a live video view of the scene and motorised focusing between 600mm and infinity.

Setup, focus adjustment and video scene view are available locally on the instrument and remotely using a standard web browser or optional SPOT Server Software. A patent pending bright green LED focus pattern pulsates to aid in the initial pyrometer alignment. SPOT also features multiple language settings, making it easily used in many countries around the world.

SPOT thermometers are designed for simple installation and are easily interchangeable with older LAND pyrometers and also some from other manufacturers.

Optional SPOT Server software allows up to 40 SPOT thermometers to be integrated, with up to 20 readings being displayed on one screen simultaneously.

Readings can be data logged and trended – making it easy to document process temperatures.The SPOT Server software fully supports multiple monitor configurations.
