The Model PSC-SSS-Laser-3M offers a wide overall temperature span of 50 to 600°C, a short wavelength, spectral response of 2.3µm, and selectable target spot sizes from 1.75mm at 70mm distance, 90mm at 3600mm, 0.7mm at 70mm or 36mm at 3600mm, depending on the selection of optics and model. The specification particularly suits the thermometer to secondary metal processing, and the measurement of oxides and ceramic materials.

Signal processing and programming electronics are contained in a rugged 2.75” X 3.5” (70 x 89mm) housing that can be mounted up to 9.8 feet (3m) from the sensor head as standard, or optionally 26 feet (8m) or 49 feet (15m), providing greater immunity from electromagnetic interference, mechanical shock, and high ambient temperatures. The sensing head is able to withstand ambient temperatures of up to 85ºC without cooling.

Functions provided by the signal processing and programming unit include: analog outputs of 0/4-20mA, 0-5/10V, and J and K thermocouple. Optional digital outputs are: USB, RS 232, RS 485, Profibus DP and Ethernet. Programmable parameters include emissivity and transmissivity adjustments, peak and valley hold, averaging, and extended hold with threshold and hysteresis.

Process Sensors’ “PSCconnect Software” supports sensor set-up, multi-tasking, graphic display of temperature trends, and data logging, and in general allows the user to customize the sensor to the application. More information can be found at www.processsensorsIR.com

6 Signs Your Maintenance Team Needs to Improve Its Safety Culture

When it comes to people and safety in industrial plants, maintenance teams are the ones who are most often in the line of fire and at risk for injury or death.

Making Asset Management Decisions: Caught Between the Push and the Pull

Most senior executives spend years climbing through the operational ranks. In the operational ranks, many transactional decisions are required each day.

Assume the Decision Maker Is Not Stupid to Make Your Communication More Powerful

Many make allowances for decision makers, saying some are “faking it until they make it.” However, this is the wrong default position to take when communicating with decision makers.

Ultrasound for Condition Monitoring and Acoustic Lubrication for Condition-Based Maintenance

With all the hype about acoustic lubrication instruments, you would think these instruments, once turned on, would do the job for you. Far from it!

Maintenance Costs as a Percent of Asset Replacement Value: A Useful Measure?

Someone recently asked for a benchmark for maintenance costs (MC) as a percent of asset replacement value (ARV) for chemical plants, or MC/ARV%.
