Pyrometer (Type OKS.)

for the contactless measurement of temperatures from – 40 °C to 2500 °C

What are pyrometers?
Proxitron pyrometers enable contactless temperature measure-ment by detecting infrared radiation from objects. This radiation is guided into a sensor element where it is converted into an electrical signal. Pyrometers measure the temperature of metals, plastics, paper, glass, asphalt and liquids for example. A range of sensor elements are available to you for almost every requirement – tailored to specific material characteristics.

What task do pyrometers perform?
In industrial fields pyrometers measure the temperature – also in areas where a measurement object is difficult to access – accurately to within one degree Celsius. Proxitron sensors can be indi-vidually adjusted and evaluated with software or parameterisation device. We also offer you special pyrometers, which always deliver reliable values even with heavily fluctuating objects. Our pyrometers are outstanding due to their robust and mainte-nance-free design – enjoying many years of fault-free operation.

How reliable are pyrometers?
The standard version with integrated electronics can be protected against ambient temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius with the aid of a cooling jacket housing. This enables reliable use, both with high temperatures and with cramped installation conditions. We also offer a diverse range of accessories, for example user-friendly software for measured data acquisition, in order to optimally align the pyrometer with your specific application. We shall be happy to advise you.
