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.
It is an ideal temperature sensor for blow moulding preform measurement, as well as applications in the food industry, laboratories, and many others.

5 to 27 V DC, 100 mA max
RS232C Modbus RTU, non-isolated
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.

Main page: PyroCube Applications
The PyroCube is ideal where an extremely fast response time is required, or where the object to be measured is very small. Typical applications include:
It is now possible to monitor the temperature of insulation and sheathing as they are applied to very narrow cables, avoiding manufacturing defects and ensuring highly repeatable product quality.
Extrusion of plastic tubing and profiles requires temperature control to ensure consistent quality. The tube or profile can be narrow, so the very small measured spot of the PyroCube is ideal. If the die is changed, the aiming angle of the sensor must often be adjusted, and the continuous LED sighting makes this easy.
Electronics: PCB testing
When testing the function of circuit boards, small components can heat up very quickly. The PyroCube can monitor the temperature of very small components and read their surface temperature instantaneously.
The PyroCube's advanced peak hold functionality is ideal for fast-moving conveyors, especially in food production. With the PyroCube, it is now possible to measure the temperature of thousands of individual items every minute.
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.
