PSC-56 Pyrometer Series big picture

Rich in features, the self-contained two-color model PSC-SR56N and one-color models PSC-G56N/PSC-S56N pyrometer series offers a choice of four sighting methods, delivers high resolution fixed focus optics with small spot sizes, digital RS485 communication interface, analog 4 to 20mA output and a fast speed of response. Optical and electronics parts are enclosed in rugged cylindrical stainless steel housings.

With five temperature ranges spanning from 500 to 3000°C, the PSC-56N series offers a choice of through-lens sighting, integrated red laser, video camera sighting, or an electronic viewfinder. The unique electronic viewfinder feature allows the user to look into the sensor’s viewfinder and observe a real-time colorized video image of the process under measurement. As with all Process Sensors two & one-color models, the PSC-SR56N Series can also be used as single wavelength pyrometer. The free PSCSpot software with optional USB cable for connection to RS485 output allows simple set up of IR thermometer parameters and records data in graphical, text or tabular format simple.

These thermometers are ideal for applications in induction heating, kilns, composites, sintering, steel and metals processing, vacuum furnaces and welding, as well as demanding research and development applications. The durable and compact companion stainless steel cooling jacket with integrated air purge stands up to even the harshest environments, and a number of innovative, ruggedly designed accessories are available.

The advantages and benefits of using a self-contained 2-color pyrometer:

  • Automatic compensation for viewing through dirt windows, dust and partial smoke
  • Compensates for changes in target emissivity
  • Measures smaller target than sensor’s field of view (FOV)
  • Unaffected by moving targets within FOV
