Fluke Process Instruments, a major player in infrared temperature measurement and profile design solutions for industrial applications, is launching the MP range's online scanners, offering continuous, accurate and on-board thermal images and temperature measurements for high-speed industrial processes. Allowing real-time images to be obtained at scanning speeds of up to 300 Hz, these new devices also benefit from a wide range of wavelengths and temperatures. They are therefore suitable for a large number of industrial applications.
"The scanning frequency is essential for rapidly detecting thermal anomalies such as non-uniformities and hot spots," says Martin Budweg, Global Product Manager at Fluke Process Instruments. The new MP online scanners can measure up to 1024 temperature points on a scanning line at a frequency of up to 300 lines per second, allowing manufacturers to better control their constant motion processes, automate temperature measurements and ensure product quality. »
Versatile, the MP range includes rotating optics and a 90-degree field of view that quickly generates rendering of a 2D image on PC. Other key features include:
High-quality broomless engine (average time between 40,000-hour breakdowns)
Integrated Ethernet TCP/IP Communications
Independent alarm exit from the PC
4-20 mA PC-independent interfaces (three outputs)
Support for I/S modules for up to 10 sectors/zones (pc-independent)
Laser in-line for accurate alignment
Robust, waterproof IP65 case
Air bleed to protect the window from impurities and condensation
Built-in water cooling for room temperature up to 180 degrees Celsius
Real-time monitoring and remote configuration with DataTemp DP software
The MP range's online scanners can be used autonomously, connected to a single PC or integrated into a complete process control system via DataTemp DP software. This Windows-based industrial PC solution allows you to set up the imager remotely and monitor the process in real time. DataTemp DP software allows you to maintain multiple product configurations (formulas), record security alarms and alarms built into text files, and offers the ability to support multiple online scanners and make real-time adjustments to ambient temperature/emissivity compensation.
Fluke Process Instruments offers many custom process imaging systems to meet the specific needs of applications such as glass processing, extrusion coating, thermoforming machine control, furnace armour monitoring and plasterboard production. Each custom system is equipped with specialized software that can guarantee and improve product quality, reduce recovery rates, etc.
