  • (< 260°C or < 500°F) and non-metal or coated metal surfaces. 
  • Adjustable IRt/cs: A self-powered, infrared thermocouple that is field calibrated. High temperatures (up to 2760°C or 5000°F) and metal surfaces can be measured. Special optics available for small spots.
  • AutoSmart IRt/cs: The AutoSmart IRt/c line consists of the 01, M, IR, SV, 1X, 3X, 3SV, 5, MA, M4, M4SV and AGRI. They all process the mV signal from any IRt/c or Micro IRt/c model, linearizes the signal and gives an analog output signal (4-20mA, 0-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V). Custom calibrations are offered

Exergen holds more than 75 patents in the field of non-contact IR temperature sensors, and offers the industry’s only self-powered IRt/cs. Its sensors deliver accuracy of within 0.01°C, and have high repeatability, 0.0001°C resolution, and response times between 50 and 150 milliseconds
