Robust wide-range temperature sensing for motorsports and automotive R&D: Variohm adds current-loop output variant to sub-miniature IR temperature sensor range
New from motorsports and aeronautical sensor specialist Texense - and available with full support from Variohm EuroSensor - the IRN2-C linear analogue & digital infrared sensor provides a 4 20 mA output over a standard temperature range of -30 to + 220 °C in a compact M12 x 34 mm sub-miniature housing.
The IRN2-C is part of a range of contact-free IR temperature sensors that suit the various emissivity characteristics of materials for race track, tyre, brake and other components used in demanding motorsports and automotive R&D applications. Based on straightforward installation with compact and durable M12 stainless steel housings, these include voltage and analogue output devices with various target temperature ranges up to +1200 °C as standard. Each sensor type also caters for the optimum measurement distance. The thermopile with silicone lens technology used in Texense sensors is extremely robust with typical shock ratings to 500 g and vibration up to 20 Gpp5 well proven in race track and test.
In particular the IRN2-C offers an accuracy of ± 2 % FS with an ambient temperature error of ± 0.5 °C. Sensitivity is 64 µA/°C, response time 50 msec (0-90%) and field of view is 4:1 at 50 mm.
Other Texense sensor products available from Variohm EuroSensor include CANbus-interfaced and wireless temperature, pressure and fluid sensors used across professional and club motorsports, aeronautics and other sports industries such as cycling dynamics.
