Omega’s new IR-USB series of infrared temperature sensors provide a method for most PC-based non-contact temperature monitoring. The unit features an IR sensor/signal conditioner installation with a direct USB connection and free user software that converts a PC into a temperature meter, chart recorder or data logger.
The Emissivity is adjustable from 0.10 to 1.0. The IR-USB measures -18 to 538 degrees Celsius (0 to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit).
Some typical temperature monitoring applications are where the object to be measured is moving; where the object is surrounded by an EM field, as in induction heating; where the object is contained in a vacuum or other controlled atmosphere; or in circumstances where a fast response is required.
Prices start at $175.
