Infrared Temperature Sensors

infrared temperature sensorIntelligent industrial temperature sensors will put the latest in radiometric technology in your hands. Integrate it into your thermal imaging system for comprehensive measurement and recording capabilities. Our performance devices offer non-contact infrared temperature sensing and reliable temperature monitoring.

To select the best thermal imaging camera, assess a product’s temperature range, application relevance and ability to measure electromagnetic radiation. Our advanced imaging cameras monitor and control industrial processes continually.

These compact cameras act as thermal imaging sensors. They measure infrared temperatures (thousands of points), monitor line profiles and capture fast action in real time. The radiometric devices meet the requirements of an expansive list of industrial/commercial enterprises, including: metal, textiles, plastics, furnace, R&D, wood and bulk solids.

Advanced IR Temperature Sensing Camera

We offer solutions to the challenges of controlling industry or R&D processes effectively with IR temperature sensors. Take a look at the remarkable technology from Process Sensors. This company makes lightweight, portable imagers that give users an edge with their IR temperature sensing capabilities and all-around functionality.

Through the latest IR technology, radiometric cameras cater to users with high resolution displays and ergonomic designs. One camera can take measurements, trigger an alarm, generate output, capture images and send data to the network. Thermal images are easily analyzed and detectors deliver the ultimate sensitivity.

Our professional line of thermal imaging sensors are ideal for service in the field. Their advanced features make them the imaging tools of choice for audits and inspections in the electrical, mechanical, energy, HVAC and PCB industries.

Sensing cameras for thermal imaging come in various sizes, temperature ranges, thermal sensitivities and spectral ranges to satisfy specialized requirements. Contact Hi-Watt for the top models of process sensors today.

M Series V/mV Output Sensor

Select a leading pyrometer to maintain accurate infrared temperature sensor readings. The Metis M3 sensor is operable in ambient temperature ranges up to 80 degrees Celsius. If you need a higher temperature reading, use a fiber optic optical head for temperature ratings up to 250 degrees Celsius.

Compare the single and dual wavelength output sensor options for photon-type detection. Thanks to the digital interface and two 16-bit analog current outputs, you can receive highly precise readings of critical operations.

As a stand-alone pyrometer series, the Metis MP and MB sensors are also capable of precision infrared temperature readings. Receive metal surface readings above 75 degrees Celsius with the Metis MP and readings above 50 degrees with the Metis MB.

The Metis MP sensor uses a focusable sensor, while the MB includes a fixed focus lens. Direct the cone of vision to target a specific point with the MP sensor. Whether your Metis sensor is equipped with a calcium fluoride or quartz glass lens, you can be confident in the transparency you need for accurate results.

Metis MP25

This infrared temperature sensor is a leading option in the Metis MP series. Equipped with quartz glass focusable lenses, the MP25 is capable of reading temperature ranges between 75 and 1300 degrees Celsius. The exact temperature range of your infrared sensor depends on your lens type and the cone of vision diameter.

The focusable lens feature of the Metis MP25 may not allow the smallest of spot sizes, but gives you a broader range of target measurement spots when compared to fixed focus lenses found in the MB series. Use one of the two included optical alignment solutions to aim your MP25 pyrometer:

  • Built-in laser pointer: Simply turn on the laser pointer and use the dot to aim your IR sensor at the chosen target. This is the most popular option, but may have limitations when it comes to incandescent targets.
  • Sight-through optics: Use optics for reticle-defined targets. This approach is most commonly used when aiming at an incandescent target that is illuminated, making it difficult to spot a laser pointer.

Choose analog or digital signals for the output reading to record temperatures throughout a process. These sensors are compatible with RS 232 or RS 485 digital communication interfaces. Equip a PID control output to optimize your sensor, easily recording and displaying temperature data.

Metis MI16

The popular MI16 infrared temperature sensor highlights the advantages of the Metis MS stand-alone pyrometer series. An indium gallium arsenide detector allows this sensor to operate at the near end of IR spectrum. Use this sensor to measure ferrous and non-ferrous metals between 250 and 2500 degrees Celsius. Simply direct the field of vision with one of the tree aiming solutions for accurate readings and convenient adjustments.

Temperatures of un-oxidized metal surfaces are traditionally difficult to read due to high emissivity at shorter wavelengths. The Metis MI16 has the focusable lenses and fiber optic cable technology you need for accurate measurements of un-oxidized metals and other surfaces. Alter the cone of vision for a small, focused spot or a larger, out-of-focus spot.


This dependable infrared temperature sensor offers dual lasers for efficient non-contact measurement. Enjoy warning alarms, rapid temperature displays, easy aiming and high-resolution optics with the PSC-SSS IR temperature sensor series.

Fixed-focus optics can measure temperatures on targets as small as 0.02 inches in diameter. Choose spectral response and temperature ranges between -50 and 1800 degrees Celsius for a diverse range of applications. The PSC-SSS series is commonly used in induction heating, semiconductor processing, food service testing and measuring temperatures of aggregate on conveyors.
