The PyroCube XS is a range of infrared temperature sensors with tightly focused optics that can measure very small areas.
Built-in LED sighting precisely illuminates the exact area being measured by the sensor.
Both models are available with or without a touch screen interface.
XSA models: 50°C to 500°C
XSB models: 100°C to 500°C
Measurements at lower temperatures are possible with reduced stability
Analogue Output Scale
Factory set to:
4 mA = 0°C
20 mA = 500°C
Adjustable via optional touch screen module or RS232
Response Time (95%)
XSA models: 10 ms
XSB models: 50 ms
Adjustable up to 5 s via averaging function
Measured Spot Diameter
From 0.7 mm depending on model and measurement distance (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
XSA models: ± 3°C or 1%, whichever is greater
XSB models: ± 5°C
XSA models: ± 1°C
XSB models: ± 2°C
XSA models: 0.5°C
XSB models: 1.5°C
Adjustable, 0.3 to 1.0, via RS232C or optional touch screen interface

Output type can be changed via optional PM030 touch screen interface to a choice of:
Voltage (range depends on model, see Ordering)
1 open drain alarm output, rated 27 V DC, 0.2 A
5 to 27 V DC, 100 mA max
RS232C Modbus RTU, non-isolated
Output Cable Connection to Sensor
XSA models: Connector built into sensor
XSB models: Hardwired
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)
XSA models: 200 g
XSB models: 85 g
Environmental Specifications (PyroCube Sensor)
Operating Ambient Temperature
0°C to 50°C
-15°C to 70°C
Operating Ambient Humidity
30% to 85% RH non-condensing
||Optional touch screen terminal for indication, configuration, data logging and alarm outputs. Sensor is available with or without display.
The PyroCube XS pyrometers measure the temperature of extremely small areas, at temperatures from 50°C to 500°C.
All models have an extremely small measured spot size. Applications include measuring the temperature of individual electronic components on circuit boards, flame polishing of the insulation jacket on electrical wire, and plastic welding where the seam is very narrow.
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.
