Many of our infrared temperature sensors have a feature called Peak or Valley Hold Processing. What does this feature do, and when should you use it?

Complete PyroMiniBus RS485 Modbus temperature monitoring and logging system with 6 sensors, junction box and touch screen display module

Modbus is a communication protocol for networks of devices, including Calex infrared temperature sensors such as the PyroMiniBus. Our own specialised hardware makes it easy to take measurements and configure sensors without any programming knowledge, however it is also possible to use third-party software to communicate with Modbus devices. A little understanding of Modbus is … Continue reading How to Use Third Party Modbus Software with Calex Sensors

Advancements in the Calex product range make it easier than ever to measure the temperature of busbar joints in switchgear cabinets.

The lens of every infrared temperature sensor must be kept clean and dry to ensure the pyrometer has a clear view of the target. The simplest way to do this is to purge the lens continuously with clean air, preventing dust and moisture from reaching it. Here is how to use the air purge collar. 

Measuring the temperature of plastic preforms in blow moulding applications is easy with Calex infrared temperature sensors. An accurate measurement can be obtained as fast as 1 millisecond, even from the smallest preform, without touching the preform.

CalexSoft 2 multi-channel temperature monitoring software

The new multi-channel temperature measurement software, CalexSoft 2, is now available as a beta release.

Most infrared temperature sensors have an adjustable emissivity setting. Here’s how to use this powerful feature to achieve accurate measurements from a variety of surfaces.
