Temperature Measurement System Offers Faster Sampling Speed

LumaSense Technologies has released its Luxtron 800 series fiber optic temperature measurement systems for temperature monitoring in harsh EMI, RF, MRI, microwave and high-voltage environments.

The Luxtron 800 series are industrial-grade, fiber optic temperature monitoring systems configurable with either one or two measurement channels at 4 Hz or 10 Hz measurement speeds. The tabletop Luxtron 812 version features an easy-to-read two-line LED display and is encased in a tamper-proof metal enclosure. The systems have RS-232 or analog output ports for downloading of data and integration into industrial control schemes. The 800 Series board-level systems are an easily integrated component into OEM products where accuracy, low or no drift and fast measurement speed are required.

The Luxtron 800 series systems are compatible with all of Luxtron Fluoroptic (FOT) probes. Luxtron FOT probes are immune to electromagnetic interference and are entirely non-metallic. Luxtron fiber optic cables are constructed to be durable and flexible, and they are coated with chemical-resistant materials. Applications include monitoring of dielectric heating processes, chemical reactions, “live” electrical circuits, microwave heating processes and high voltage applications such as winding hot spot temperature measurement in transformers.

“Our Luxtron 800 series was designed specifically for our industrial customers who need a smaller fiber optic temperature monitoring unit that has the accuracy, stability, and repeatability of our previous products with the option of a faster sampling speed,” said Harry Hirschman, product line director.
