For Dull or Reflective Targets

PSC-IR-USB series are loop-powered two-wire sensors with fixed focus optics, 4-20mA output and USB to PC cable connection. Using the PSC Congfig software and supplied USB cable, operational settings can be adjusted from the PC. Temperature ranges from -40°C to 2000°C with a response time of 200ms. Offered in two different models, one is designed for low-reflection, dull surface materials, and the other built for high reflection surfaces.



USB Configurable Infrared Temperature Sensors with 2-Wire, 4-20 mA Output

The PSC-IR-USB Series measures temperatures from -40°C to 2000°C with a response time of 200 ms. 2-wired, loop-powered sensor with long and short wavelengths of 8-14 um and 2.2 um respectively. Effective for reflective metals. The 4 to 20mA output is compatible with most temperature indicators, controllers, recorders, or data loggers without the need for special interfacing or signal conditioning. Comes with PSCConfig software, a simple, touch-friendly software compatible with versions up to Windows 11.

PSC-IR-USB models (8-14 um) can measure temperature from -40°C to1000°C. They are suitable for measuring high-emissivity materials such as paper, thick plastics, food, rubber, pharmaceutical powders, asphalt, and painted surfaces.

PSC-IR-USB 2.2 models (2.2 um) offers temperature ranges from 45°C to 2000°C. This short wave sensor series provides more accurate readings than general purpose sensors when measuring reflective surfaces such as metals. They are also capable of measuring temperatures through glass, quartz, or sapphire windows.

All PSC-IR-USB Series sensors are fully configurable from a PC, using the PSC Congfig software with supplied USB cable. This user-friendly software enables the user to set the temperature range and emissivity, compensate for reflected energy, apply filtering, select max, min, average, or instantaneous readings, and configure peak or valley hold processing. Other features include data acquisition, alarms and a scrolling graphical display. The IR sensor can operate with either the 4 to 20 mA cable connected, the USB cable connected, or both. The USB cable has an IP65 connector at the sensor end. An IP65 cap protects the sensor when the USB cable is not connected.
