The Raytek CI model provides the advantages of infrared temperature measurement in a compact, low cost, integrated sensor. Designed for easy integration into a standard 4-wire system, the CI sensor can easily replace traditional contact probes with a J-type or K-type thermocouple output, or with a 0-5 volt output if your application is susceptible to noise or requires a longer cable run.
The CI sensor is designed to measure target temperatures ranging from 0°C to 500°C (32°F to 932°F). The CI unit’s onboard electronics are protected by a rugged IP 65 (NEMA-4) stainless steel housing, allowing the sensor to function in ambient temperatures to 70°C (160°F) without cooling. With water cooling, the CI sensor can withstand ambient temperatures to 260°C (500°F).
Because the CI unit has the same 50 Ohm output impedance as a thermocouple, it functions accurately—without offset errors—when used in conjunction with the thermocouple break protection circuitry in most controllers, displays, and transmitters.
Compact. Easy to install. Affordable. The Raytek CI sensor is ideal for both OEM and end-user applications.
