This line features System Health Check – a diagnostics tool that confirms that the Modline 5 spot pyrometer, including temperature detector, internal circuitry, and even the output signal is working within factory specifications. The System Health Check runs continuously in the background and notifies the operator of failures with a relay or analog output.

                                            The Modline 5 Dirty Window Detector (DWD) automatically senses for dust, condensation, or other contaminants that build up on the lens. It sends an alarm or analog output to notify the user of any obstructions. Programmable coarse and fine settings within the Modline 5 setup menus let you tune the DWD, depending on how severe your process application is.

                                            Unique Emissivity or E Slope Match Function helps you to easily determine the emissivity or E Slope to achieve correct temperature measurements. Simply aim the sensor at the target and adjust settings to the known temperature—Emissivity or E Slope settings will be automatically adjusted, taking the guesswork out.

                                            Designed to withstand long durations in harsh environments, all components of the Modline 5 sensor are contained within a sealed, stainless steel NEMA 4 (IP65) enclosure. With a diameter less than 5.7cm (2.25 inches), it is one of the most capable small infrared thermometers on the market.

                                              • During the production of glass products, temperature monitoring and controlling are essential for high productivity and quality of the end product. Due to the hot hostile environments and high product temperatures, temperature measurement utilizing thermocouples is often expensive and difficult to install and maintain. Infrared thermometers are the ideal instrument to measure molten glass, furnace refractory, and the final processing of the glass product because they are easy to install and maintain, and they have long term life and stability.
                                              • Plastic Processing

                                              • Plastic parts and films are becoming increasingly expensive due to the high cost of raw materials. In addition, due to the high volume of parts produced, the customer cannot afford to generate scrap and waste excess energy. The temperature of the product during the production cycle is very critical and a noncontact infrared thermometer can remove the guesswork out of the production process.

                                                The advantages of an infrared thermometer are:
                                                • Noncontact, so it does not interfere with the process
                                                • Fast response for fast temperature control
                                                • Ability to measure individual targets or the complete width of the target
                                                • Availability of alarms, recording and control outputs
                                                To aid in the selection of the correct instrument, Ircon application engineers will test the plastic samples and provide the customer with the best selection of the specific sensor type. The tests are free of charge and the number of samples that can be tested is unlimited.
                                              • Packaging, Paper & Converting

                                              • Noncontact infrared thermometers are used in many applications for paper production and processing paper into finished products. From processing the pulp to converting the paper into labels, lottery tickets and coated papers, the temperature of the product is critical to improve the quality, insure proper drying and reduce production costs.
                                              • Semiconductor & Solar

                                              • Temperature measurement during many semiconductor processes is very difficult. Often the process will not allow the use of temperature sensors like thermocouples because the product cannot be touched or is inside of a vacuum chamber. The processes require fast response times and very accurate repeatable readings from room to high temperatures. The instruments must maintain accurate temperatures for a process that may take days to complete.

                                                Ircon® rugged and dependable noncontact infrared thermometers allow temperature measurement that has small optical resolutions, fast response times and drift free operation for long periods of time. Listed below are examples of how Ircon infrared products are used in semiconductor processes and how they can improve quality, insure accurate and long term temperature control.
                                              • Other Applications

                                              • There are many industries that require heating or cooling of their products and controlling temperature is critical to achieving quality products at the lowest cost and fastest production time. There are many ways to measure temperature, but noncontact infrared thermometers have several advantages. Noncontact thermometers measure actual product temperature and not the temperature of the environment surrounding the product. With noncontact measurement, there is no contamination of the product and the process is not interrupted. The response time of these sensors can be very fast - 10 ms is very common.
