Infrared temperature sensor with IO-Link from BalluffInfrared temperature sensor with IO-Link from Balluff

The sensor specialist Balluff has developed a new BTS infrared temperature sensor with IO-Link interface and two switching outputs. It can monitor temperatures between 250 and 1250 °C even in inaccessible or hazardous areas, detect hot objects in motion and record temperature values - all without contact. This pyrometer in the rugged M30 stainless steel housing with IP67 protection is the first in this form factor to offer a multi-function display with plain text information and automatic display orientation like with a smartphone.

In addition to two switching outputs this pyrometer provides an IO-Link interface for remote parameter setting and direct data exchange with the controller or control panel. An analog 4...20 mA output is available as an option.

A variety of setting possibilities and functions open up a wide range of applications for the user. Steelworks, foundries, forging, the ceramics industry and glassworks are perfect examples of applications.
