Precision non-contact infrared thermometer uses fiber optics.
The Opticon/Argosy Series is said to provide the user with a low cost and reliable way to read temperature by non-contact means. This precision non-contact infrared thermometer is said to offer the latest advances in fiber optics technology with ease of set-up and performance.
Fiber optics cable is available either as single strand, flexible bundles or rigid rods, transmitting infrared energy from the measured point to the sensor head. They are used in applications in which it is difficult to secure an unobstructed view of the target, or when the sensor probe must be located in an environment too hostile or too confining for the normal optical head.
An Opticon system consists of four elements, including the electronic signal processor, the detector sensing head, a fiber cable which can terminate in a high temperature rod and a fixed or focusable lens to give the desired spot size at the desired distance.
The basic Opticon head contains an aiming light and an infrared detector and accepts a bifurcated fiber bundle, The aiming light transmits visible light down one branch of the bundle while infrared is transmitted up the other branch to the detector. Focusing assemblies are available.
