Exergen Global today announced two new family members to its AutoSmart IRt/c sensor line being the M4 and M4SV editions. The AutoSmart Transmitter is the first transmitter in the world capable of fully calibrating Exergen IRt/c sensors to provide unprecedented accuracy of 0.1 °F or 0.1 °C by custom calibration over a very specific range providing two unique advantages:
- an accuracy that is 10 times better than standards on infrared sensors with the same output,
- a repeatability error of ± 0.01°C.
Next to the very popular M, 01, and 3x AutoSmart IRt/c’s, the two new family members provide the following specification:
“The line has been received extremely well by our printing, drying, and manufacturing customers. Accuracy and speed have become essential, even mandatory in their field to stand out and live up to the expectations of their customers”, said Bram Stelt, CEO of Exergen Global. “We are proud that with this very broad line of solutions, we have turned both requirements into reality,” he added.
The AutoSmart IRt/c processes 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). You can choose from two global-standard current outputs: 4-20 mA, 0-20mA, or three global-standard current outputs: 0-10V, 0-5V, and 0-1V. No impedance, leakage current, or linearity problems to worry about. OEM’s and system integrators can choose from a range of 0-100°C or 0-250°C target temperature. They can automatically calibrate AutoSmart Transmitter sensors themselves, so calibration can take place at the manufacturing site and take into account environmental factors, such as ambient temperature. AutoSmart IRt/c sensors can be calibrated automatically by OEMs using a USB connector, software, and a heat source. Also, custom calibrations are offered.
Exergen’s IRt/c product line includes • Precalibrated IRt/cs: The world’s only self-powered infrared thermocouple. Best for low temperatures (< 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 5000°F) and metal surfaces can be measured. Special optics are available for small spots and far distances (up to 100:1). • AutoSmart IRt/cs: The AutoSmart IRt/c line consists of the 01, M, IR, SV, 1X, 3X, 3SV, 5, MA, M4, and M4SV. 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.
