Pyrometers are temperature measurement instruments that operate on the principle of infrared radiation, i.e. they detect infrared radiation of objects to determine the temperature.
In many industry sectors, the use of non-contact temperature measurement instruments is an important technology. For example, it is used for controlling complete factory processes or measuring even the smallest components to ensure a consistent quality level.
With a huge pyrometer product portfolio developed from years of research and customer contact, LumaSense Technologies provides solutions for nearly every application request. This overview gives an impression of the possibilities that pyrometry provides. Special solutions that are not listed below can also be quickly adapted to customer or application specific specifications.
Fully digital, very fast pyrometers with or without optical fiber.
All instruments feature a display, very small spot sizes, analog output and digital interface, and maximum value storage.
Fully digital, fast pyrometers (in many different wavelength versions) with view finder, laser targeting light, or color TV camera for a broad variety of applications. This series offers very small spot sizes, focusable optics, display, buttons for instrument settings, analog output, digital interface, and maximum value storage. Versions are also available with Profibus, Profinet or Ethernet interface.
This series includes special instrument versions for special applications / materials, e.g. extremely short wavelength pyrometers (metal measurements with high emissivity), measurement of CO2, measurement through flames, measurement of very thin PE- and PP-foils, and measurement of glass surfaces, etc.
LumaSense offers the industry's most accurate non contact temperature measurement solutions. The Mikron PhotriX™ pyrometer is the industry's best signal-to-noise ratio in a compact package. Offering the most precise non-contact measurements, PhotriX™ pyrometers are ideally suited for industrial applications requiring closed loop control of thermal processes.
Measurements in many industrial-heating applications require high resolution as well as repeatability. The PhotriX™ system offers unmatched precision and speed made possible by its superior signal-to-noise ratio.
The PhotriX™ uses shorter shorter wavelength detectors that minimize the effect of emissivity errors and improve accuracy of the measurements. The PhotriX™ also offers ambient temperature compensation to combat drift for unmatched longterm stability and reproducibility for long process cycle applications like crystal growth.
A standard PhotriX™ system includes the sensor electronics with anti-reflective coated lens, the communication interface module (CIM), RS-232 interface cable, universal power supply, and the TemperaSure™ data acquisition and graphing interface software.
Optimal operation of your Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU) requires measurement and control of a complex sequence of processes. Of particular importance is control of the reaction furnace temperature to prevent damage to the refractory at high temperatures and to prevent ammonium salt from plugging the converters at low temperatures. LumaSense E²T applies sophisticated infrared technology to the solution for your furnace temperature measurement requirements.
The LumaSense E²T Pulsar family of detection systems are designed for continuous and instantaneous measurement of Refractory Temperature (RT), Gas Temperature (GT) or Integrated Temperature (FF) in the vessel away from the heat, vibration and corrosive gases. Each system allows visual inspection of combustion processes, refractory cureout and preventative maintenance while the vessel is pressurized and fully operational.
Pilot flame detection must be monitored to assure ignition of flared gases during flare operation. However, thermocouple failure due to thermal shock leaves operators without pilot monitoring capability until the next scheduled flare tip maintenance.
LumaSense’s E²T QUASAR family of detection systems are built for continuous duty monitoring of pilot flame (PM), flared gases (FM) and smoke particulate (SM) from flare stacks. The sightthrough optical system and choices of fields of view allow the QUASAR to be positioned up to ¼ mile (400 m) from the flare stack. Each of the systems includes a removable camera module, dual outputs, explosion-proof housing, internal heater and cooling.
LumaSense thermal imaging cameras and systems accurately measure temperature and operate by using reliable infrared technology. These high-tech Instruments can precisely determine the object temperature and the temperature distribution even on small and fast moving objects.
Thermal imaging cameras perform an essential control function in major manufacturing industries. By monitoring the temperature, users can control entire factory production processes as well as ensure highest quality standards.
These thermal imaging systems are fully turn-key so you get the most out of your investment.
By delivering high-quality, reliable products combined with consistent service and support, our goal is to ensure peace of mind and the highest level of customer satisfaction.

Our Fiber Optical Temperature product lines have set the standard in the energy, research and medical industries. Based on Fluoroptic and Gallium Arsenide material technologies, each individual product can be configured for a specific application starting from basic electronic instruments or OEM modules to complete turn-key systems.
LumaSense’s Fluoroptic Thermometry (FOT) product line best fits large power transformers, as well as transformers that are UHV, EHV, HVDC and all reactors. LumaSense pioneered the FOT technology and was first to introduce transformer hot spot fiber optic temperature sensors to the market. With decades of accumulated experience, LumaSense continues to innovate and maintain high quality and service standards to hold its position as industry leader with its Luxtron brand of products.
LumaSense’s Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)-based product line is best fit for utility companies that want to measure hot spot winding for small power transformers and distribution transformers that have a smaller asset management budget. LumaSense’s GaAs-based product line uses the same basic technology as the competition, however it offers a simplified installation technique and value-added product features.
The LumaSHIELD is a multi-channel signal conditioner compatible with any of LumaSense’s GaAs-based fiber optic temperature sensors. At the heart of the LumaSHIELD is the LumaSense Semiconductor Band Gap (SCBG) technology which performs measurements using the temperature-dependent bandgap shift of a Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) crystal.
The ThermAsset®2 is a much sought after addition to LumaSense's Luxtron product line, offering a primary controller to monitor hot spots, control cooling, and protection at a cost that is attractive to the apparatus engineers and system operators.
Calibration sources are infrared radiators with fixed or adjustable temperatures between -40 and 3000 °C, used for the calibration or verification of the correct temperature-indication of pyrometers, thermal imaging systems, heat flux measurement systems or spectrographic analysis systems. Depending on the model of the calibration source single temperature points or temperature curves of an infrared measurement device can be monitored and recorded.
LumaSense Technologies supplies a unique selection of very precise blackbody and calibration sources. These are defined by cutting edge emissivity values, very homogenous emission areas, a wide range of different sized apertures to adapt to the desired target area. Fast heat up times and high temperature stability are guaranteed.
The internal feedback control loop of the calibration sources are driven by integrated or external digital PID-controllers. Temperature control of low to mid temperature radiation sources is by integrated thermocouples. High temperature radiators are controlled by integrated pyrometers.
Small, easy to use. Large surface area and fixed temperature. Ideal for benches and multiple, fixed temperature calibration set points. Minimum temperature deviation provides excellent temperature uniformity.
