This new generation IR thermometer is designed in accordance with industry standards to meet process performance requirements in hot environments of 400–3000°C (752-5432°F) and provides exceptional accuracy.The portable Raynger 3i Plus IR thermometer is ideal for use in high-temperature industrial applications, such as iron and steel, metal refining, foundry and processing operations, ceramics, semiconductors, and chemical and petrochemical furnaces, as well as heat treatment and power plants.It is a robust solution for improving process quality and productivity, resulting in improved business performance.
According to Raytek Product Manager, Dr. Martin Budweg, the Raynger 3i Plus Series offers a number of advanced features to optimize performance with high accuracy (±0.5% +1ºC), such as high optical resolution, faster exposure/processing time and a large memory capacity. “The Raynger 3i Plus sets a new industry standard for the measurement of process temperatures, especially under extreme conditions,” Budweg said. “The thermometer utilizes a rugged casing material that has withstood a one-meter drop test. This protects the unit from damage and possible replacement costs. Additionally, the use of a “Red Nose” heat-resistant warning detector and alarm reduces the risk of the sensor overheating — minimizing repair costs — while averting costly accidents and ensuring operator safety.”
Budweg added, “The Raynger 3i Plus provides large optical resolution and a superior Distance-to-Spot (D:S) ratio, enabling accurate measurement of temperature targets from longer distances, and with its Red Dot sighting feature, the user has a precise indication of where the temperature is being measured.”
The Raynger 3i Plus Series models 1M and 2M meet a wide range of process temperature detection and fault previewing requirements. Their enhanced ease-ofuse features include: intuitive user-interface for easy parameter setup, ergonomically designed comfort grip, accurate targeting when high-temperature targets are not visible using laser sighting alone, and rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries for longer operational cycles of 24-hours. In addition, the 3i Plus features fast and easy transfer of data to PC or smartphone via USB or Bluetooth, a mobile application for quick data transfer and collaboration, and can be used as a temporary online thermometer.
Each 3i Plus thermometer includes: Raytek DataTemp® Windows PC software, which supports real-time communication, data storage, graphing and analysis; Lithium-ion battery; carrying case; mini USB port adapter; mini USB-to-jack converter for charging battery separately; and operators manual.
