Fluke expands its Thermalert 4.0 pyrometer series

Fluke Process Instruments expands its Thermalert 4.0 pyrometer series, adding intrinsically safe models and HART protocol as an additional interface option. The rugged, intelligent and compact infrared temperature sensors in an IP65-rated stainless-steel housing are easy to connect via 2-wire installation.

The series provides a future-proof, Industry-4.0-ready solution for non-contact, automatic, real-time temperature monitoring. Various spectral models cover a large measured temperature range from -40 °C to 2300 °C and all kinds of industrial applications, such as primary and secondary metals, glass and plastics manufacturing.

The new intrinsically safe models rated Ex ib now add infrared thermometer options for use in hazardous environments with potentially explosive gas or dust atmospheres (zones 1 and 21). Accordingly, all models are optionally available with an ATEX/IECEx/CCC-IS certification, with the only exception of sensors with plastic lenses.
