Product Description

The rugged Modline® 6 line of infrared thermometers delivers the best value in terms of price, performance, features and ease-of-use. These high performance IR sensors permit measurement of targets in harsh industrial environments that are otherwise inaccessible with non-fiber optic thermometers.

The Modline 6 pyrometers feature advanced signal processing and background-reflected energy compensation capabilities on 62 and 6G Series. In addition, Modline 6 includes the 6R that operates in a two-color mode designed for intermittent targets and severe environments.

The Modline 6 fiber optic infrared thermometers consist of a rugged fiber optic cable and re-imaging lens. The assembly is connected to an electronics housing containing the detector, processing electronics, brightly lit LED user-interface/display and termination connections for field wiring.

The fixed focus re-imaging lens consists of a small stainless steel cylindrical housing and lens assembly. The re-imaging lens accommodates an air-purge accessory to prevent lens contamination and the fiber-optic cable is protected by metal armor to allow for higher ambient temperatures up to 315°C (600ºF).

ModViewTM Pro Software

The Modline 6 series features Ircon® ModView Pro software, which allows the operator to set all the parameters remotely, displays the temperature, shows the temperature graphically, sets up alarms and records the data for future use. This software provides the selection of signal processes like, Peak Hold, Valley Hold and Averaging. The ModView Pro software provides the setup for background compensation for applications where reflections from external hot sources have to be eliminated.

Models & Applications

The Modline 6 series of noncontact temperature sensors is used in a variety of demanding industrial applications, including metal heat treating, steel production and foundries, primary and secondary glass, as well as semiconductor and PV solar manufacturing. The series features three models listed below, including two-color (ratio) thermometers:
