Now Ircon is proud to announce a new addition to the Modline family the Modline 5 Infrared Thermometer
The Modline 5 stand alone infrared thermometer was specifically developed to handle the harsh applications common in foundries, steel mills, furnaces, semiconductor, and other high temperature manufacturing environments. Its outer body uses a stainless steel, NEMA 4 rated housing to protect against corrosion and humidity. Wiring is handled with a high temperature cable and completely sealed electrical connectors to further improve reliability.
While the outside of the Modline 5 is built to provide long lasting performance in tough environments, the rest of the sensor contains many innovative features not found on most infrared thermometers. Complete menu driven setup of the Modline 5 can be accomplished through a rear panel keypad with backlit display or via RS-485 from the Ircon Digital Panel Meter or any other RS-485 device. An optional Dirty Window Detector (patent # 5812270) actually "senses" if dirt, water, or other contaminants are built up on the window of the sensor. The Dirty Window Detector can then provide an alarm notifying the operator that the window needs to be cleaned.
In continuous monitoring applications reliability is the key to preventing downtime in a manufacturing plant. Perhaps one of the most unique features of the Modline 5 Infrared Thermometer is its Total System Health Check capability. When powered up, the sensor can automatically verify that it is performing within factory specifications. The Total System Health Check reviews the infrared detector, electronics, and even the window of the sensor to see if they conform to Ircon standards. This feature ensures that the Modline 5 is not in question during start up or the troubleshooting a process.
