The R10 is part of the company's line of fixed infrared sensors designed for use in OEM equipment and industrial process control and monitoring applications. The 304 stainless steel housing is IP65 (NEMA 4) rated. This allows the unit to function in ambient temperatures up to 122°F without requiring additional cooling. With a temperature range of 32 to 932°F (0 to 500°C), the fixed infrared sensor has 4 to 20 mA output. The 20:1 distance-to-spot ratio is suited for use measuring smaller target areas, or in applications where the distance between the sensor and the measurement area is larger. The rated accuracy is ±1 percent of reading, and the fixed emissivity is 0.95. Optional mounting brackets, air purge and air/water cooling jackets are available. All models in the line will be powered by 24 VDC to easily interface with standard PLCs, temperature controllers or panel meters.
