Product Description

The Modline® 5 is a durable, standalone infrared sensor built to serve a wide range of industrial temperature measurement applications. This line features System Health Check – a diagnostics tool that confirms that the Modline 5 spot pyrometer, including temperature detector, internal circuitry, and even the output signal is working within factory specifications. The System Health Check runs continuously in the background and notifies the operator of failures with a relay or analog output.

The Modline 5 Dirty Window Detector (DWD) automatically senses for dust, condensation, or other contaminants that build up on the lens. It sends an alarm or analog output to notify the user of any obstructions. Programmable coarse and fine settings within the Modline 5 setup menus let you tune the DWD, depending on how severe your process application is.

Unique Emissivity or E Slope Match Function helps you to easily determine the emissivity or E Slope to achieve correct temperature measurements. Simply aim the sensor at the target and adjust settings to the known temperature—Emissivity or E Slope settings will be automatically adjusted, taking the guesswork out.

Designed to withstand long durations in harsh environments, all components of the Modline 5 sensor are contained within a sealed, stainless steel NEMA 4 (IP65) enclosure. With a diameter less than 5.7cm (2.25 inches), it is one of the most capable small infrared thermometers on the market.

ModView™ Configuration Software

ModView Configuration Software, a monitoring tool supplied with every Modline 5 sensor, enables quick setup and communication between the PC and a sensor through bi-directional RS-485 digital communications. Features include:

  • All sensor parameters can be viewed and adjusted through a PC, using a single window “dashboard”.
  • Settings files can be saved and re-used for configuring other Modline 5 sensors.
  • A trend screen provides a real-time, graphical display of temperature readings.
  • Temperature data can be recorded over time and exported as a CSV file for archiving, trending and reporting purposes.

Models & Applications

The Modline 5 series features four models listed below, including two-color (ratio) thermometers:

Temp Span
Modline 52

Operating Ambient Temperatures
  • Without cooling: 0 to 55ºC (32 to 130ºF
  • With integral air cooling: 0 to 105ºC (32 to 220ºF
  • With integral water cooling: 0 to 200ºC (32 to 400ºF)


Modline 5 sensor hardware accessories are designed to simplify installation and maintenance, increase operator safety and assure sensor accuracy and protection in harsh environments. In addition to mounting accessories, accessories include:

  • Digital Panel Meter
  • Water Jacket Accessory (WJA)
  • Base Mounting Adapter (BMA)

Additional specifications and product dimensions are available in the Modline 5 product brochure.
