New online product selector for infrared temperature sensors

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has launched a new online tool for assisting customers in selecting the most appropriate infrared temperature sensor for their application.

With so many product variants within its thermoMETER range of infrared temperature sensors, Micro-Epsilon's new 'Product Selector' tool speeds up the time it takes for customers to find the right product for their needs. The tool is accessible via the company's website homepage.

Product Selector is an easy-to-use product configurator that utilises just four parameters in order to identify a suitable sensor solution for common applications.

First, the user specifies the material of the object to be measured from a pre-defined list of options that includes more than 40 materials such as glass, ceramics, steel, aluminium, plastics and rubber.

Next, the user specifies the spot size diameter between 0 and 400mm, followed by the distance between the sensor and the target object (0 to 6,750mm). The user is then invited to select the temperature measuring range - anywhere between -50 deg C to +1,800 deg C. If a product with laser aiming/marking is required for accurate alignment, or if space restrictions call for a more compact sensor with integrated controller, the user can refine the search accordingly.

Based on the four parameters above, the user is then presented with a list of on-screen product options. From this list, the user can select a sensor product, view the product datasheet, specify other application details such as cable lengths and output options, and then request a quotation.

Chris Jones, Managing Director at Micro-Epsilon UK commented: "Our customers wanted a tool that would help them quickly identify the most appropriate infrared temperature sensor product or products for their application. With just a few clicks of their mouse, the new Product Configurator allows users to find the required sensor quickly and easily."

Micro-Epsilon (www.micro-epsilon.co.uk) is a major global manufacturer of sensors, headquartered in Germany. The company’s range of displacement sensors measure everything from to distance, position, vibration, dimensions and thickness, using both contact and non-contact measurement techniques. These techniques include 1D, 2D and even 3D laser-optical sensors and systems, eddy-current, capacitive, LVDT & inductive, potentiometric and draw-wire principles. Additionally Micro Epsilon has developed its own range of non-contact infrared temperature sensors that can measure virtually any target temperature from -40 to +3,300°C.

With more than 35 years’ experience in the industry, Micro-Epsilon isn’t just a sensor manufacturer. The company is highly innovative and understands the importance of providing complete solutions and support services for its customers. The firm is renowned for its expertise in consulting, development and application of industrial sensors to complex, customer-specific solutions for measurement, inspection and automation. The focus is on selling technical advantage to its customers.
