IR Thermometer for Heat Treating

Five operating modes Local or remote set-up Built-in visual camera

LAND INSTRUMENTS is claiming new usability and capability standards for industrial non-contact infrared thermometers with the introduction of its SPOT R100 high-temperature, multi-mode thermometer. The instrument 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 SPOT R100 offers enhanced on-board processing capabilities, eliminating the need for a separate signal processing device.  It features a simple user interface for local set-up and configuration (including spot size and focus distance, live target temperature, emissivity, alarms and measurement range.) Configuration can be done 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.
