Pyrometer optris CT 4ML for precise and ultra-fast non-contact
temperature measurement of metal

Due to its short measuring wavelength and a temperature range from 0°C to 500 °C, the pyrometer optris CT 4ML, is ideally suited for measurement of metals, metal oxides, ceramics or materials with unknown or changing emissivity. The quick response time of only 300 μs allows for a problem-free use of the metal thermometer in fast processes.

The electronics box of the measuring device allows a flexible terminal device through selectable analog outputs as well as various optional digital interfaces.

Areas of application for the pyrometer optris CT 4ML

The IR thermometer optris CT 4ML has a measuring wavelength of 2.2 µm to 6.0 µm and is thus employed in temperature measurements of metallic surfaces and composite materials in processing. Especially its low temperature range from 0°C to 500 °C makes the temperature sensor a popular measuring device for every kind of low-temperature measurement of metals.

Infrared software optris Compact Connect included

The temperature analysis software optris Compact Connect has been developed specifically for the extensive documentation and analysis of temperature measurement data of our stationary infrared thermometers. It is license-free and included in every pyrometer shipment.
