The PyroNFC is a general-purpose infrared temperature sensor. It measures non-reflective non-metals straight out of the box using default settings.

The surface temperature of materials including paper, thick plastics, wood and manufactured board, painted surfaces, tarmac, bulk materials, food, pharmaceuticals and organic materials is measured accurately and easily.

The sensor is fully configurable for emissivity setting, averaging, peak or valley hold processing, reflected energy compensation, alarm and more, via NFC (Near Field Communications) with the free PyroNFC app for Android.

Typical Applications

Brake testing
The PyroNFC fits in restricted spaces such as between a wheel and a disc brake. It can measure the temperature of the brake disc at the rim or the hub.
Condition monitoring
The sensor's low cost makes it ideal for measuring many points, and it is possible for the operator to check the temperature at each location with a smartphone with no need for a separate local display

Installation (all dimensions in mm)

Models with Voltage Output

Models with Type K Thermocouple Output

FBN & ABN

Fixed and adjustable mounting brackets

Provides 1 or 2 axis adjustment for aiming the sensor. Model shown: FBN (fixed mounting bracket, 1 axis adjustment).

APN

Air purge collar

The lens of all infrared temperature sensors must be kept clean for accurate measurements. This accessory helps stop dust and condensation from settling on the lens. Includes barbed air fitting and long mounting screws.

CALCERTA

3-point UKAS traceable calibration certificate

PNCE

Extended cable (30 m max)
