IR thermometer optris CTlaser 4M for measurement of metals with low temperatures
The infrared thermometer optris CTlaser 4M with its wavelengths range of 2.2 – 6 μm is perfectly suited for measurements of metals, metal oxides, ceramics or materials with unknown or changing emissivity. It offers a temperature range between 0°C (32 °) and 500°C (932 °F) and can be employed in up to 85°C (185 °F) without additional cooling.
Due to its ultra-fast exposure time of 90 μs, the highly efficient IR thermometer allows the surveillance of high speed processes and is the ideal pyrometer for low temperature applications. Selectable outputs and various digital interfaces offer a high variability for the evaluation of the measured data.
