Exergen Global, the award-winning thermal sensor solution provider, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Multi IR, a global leader in infrared technologies based in Hangzhou, China. The move is part of Exergen Global’s ongoing strategy to forge partnerships that will help expand its presence and bring its products and services directly to customers in Asia. Beyond its recent growth in China, Exergen Global plans to expand into Japan, South-Korea, and Taiwan.
Asia offers a significant market opportunity for IR sensors. In fact, a recent Frost & Sullivan report forecasts that by 2020 the region will comprise 20.5 percent of global revenue for the IR temperature sensors segment gradually replacing existing contact temperature sensors. Exergen Global sees growth opportunities in the markets in which it excels, including high-speed printing, paper, pulp, laminating, injection molding, curing, and medical.
“China’s reputation for reliable manufacturing and innovative technology has significantly increased in recent years as the country continues to make quality a priority. Hangzhou and many other technology centers in China now offer state of the art facilities and, as a result, the country is making considerable inroads in the world market,” said Bart van Liempd, CEO, Exergen Global. “The region is largely untapped and represents a significant opportunity for IR sensors. We believe that our reputation for quality and reliability, combined with Multi IR’s reach and presence, puts us in an ideal position to maximize that opportunity.”
As part of the agreement, Multi IR will rebrand its established infrared sensor division as Exergen Global China, giving it direct access to the company’s extensive family of non-contact infrared thermal sensor products as well as its comprehensive services. Multi IR will engage distributors in the region to expand the Exergen Global brand and presence.
The company also announced the immediate availability of the Game Changer, the Exergen N1030IR, an exceptionally accurate, small-sized, and simple-to-use plug and play non-contact temperature sensor solution. The Game Changer is an all-in-one package that includes: A Novus PID Controller N1030IR with all the mV tables needed for Exergen’s Micro IRt/c, and The Exergen Micro IRt/c-180F/90C + Air Purge (Exergen Micro IRt/c sensor with a Macrolon Air Purge and mounting bracket)
The Exergen N1030IR guarantees an accuracy of 1% and repeatability of 0.01% for the industry’s broadest temperature range – 32 to 392 °F / 0 to 200 °C – making them ideally suited to a broad range of applications, including graphics/printing/laminating, textiles, medical, aesthetical, food, plastics, and others. The Exergen N1030IR, including Exergen’s Micro IRt/c with Air Purge and mounting bracket and Novus’ N1030IR controller, is available for an end user price of $ 199.00. The solution will be demoed for the very first time at Photonics Laser world – Shanghai from March 14 – 16, booth number: W4.425.
