Quickly Detect Surface Temperature
KEYENCE has significantly increased the responsiveness of the FT's temperature detection method by:
1. Decreasing the thickness of the far-infrared resonance film to it's minimum functional thickness.
2. Positioning thermocouples in a geometrically efficient way in order to absorb and detect heat quickly and accurately.
* The typical response speed is 10 ms and the highest response speed is 15 ms.
Two laser pointers* clearly indicate the detection range making sensor installation simple.
* FDA class I, IEC class 1
A cylindrical housing with the detecting element inside is suspended inside of the sensor head. This gives a thermal air-buffer between the sensor and the ambient air allowing the sensor size to be minimized.
To maximize the sensor's stability KEYENCE developed an IPC circuit that averages readings constantly, making the FT more stable than the competition.
The FT Series displays stable temperatures under varying conditions.
