The PyroCube is an infrared pyrometer with an extremely fast response time and a very small measurement area size. It is available with or without the PM030 touch screen interface.
100°C to 600°C
Provided emissivity > 0.3, measurements below 100°C are possible with reduced stability.
Analogue Output Scale
Factory set to:
4 mA = 50°C
20 mA = 600°C
Adjustable via optional touch screen module or RS232
Response Time (95%)
1 ms (adjustable via averaging function)
Measured Spot Diameter
From 1.0 mm depending on measurement distance and choice of optics (see Field of View Diagrams below)
Red LED built-in as standard on all models, shows the position and size of the measurement area. Switchable on/off.
Accuracy of Measurement

The given measured spot size contains 90% of the energy detected by the sensor. We normally recommend the target is at least twice as large as the given measured spot for maximum accuracy.
Accuracy specifications are valid up to the maximum distances shown.
Weight (without cable)
-MB models: 85 g
-MA models: 190 g
Environmental Specifications (PyroCube Sensor)
Operating Ambient Temperature
0°C to 50°C
-15°C to 70°C
Operating Ambient Humidity

||Optional touch screen terminal for indication, configuration, data logging and alarm outputs. Sensor is available with or without display.
The PyroCube M measures the temperature of small, reflective metal targets from 100°C to 600°C with a response time of 1 millisecond.
MA models can measure areas as small as 1 mm. A choice of optics is available.
The smaller, lower-cost MB model measures an 11 mm spot.
All models can measure through glass or quartz viewports.
Instantly and accurately measure the preheat temperature of steel surfaces before they are welded.
Finishing and coating
Measure the preheat temperature of bare metal surfaces on small parts before they are coated.
Tools and machine shafts
Small, bare metal machine parts such as cutting tools, bearings and shafts can be monitored without contact.
The PyroCube may be installed with or without the PM030 touch screen interface.
The PyroCube sensor may be ordered with or without the PM030 touch screen interface.
