Popular IR Sensors Now Brandish Ex-proof Certification
Raytek Corp.

All models of the Raytek MI3 Compact Series infrared (IR) sensors are now available as intrinsically safe versions for use in hazardous environments. The sensors are now fully ATEX and IEC Ex certified for use in Zones 1 and 2 (gas) and Zones 21 and 22 (dust). They come with a complete intrinsically safe package including the sensor, communication box, and an Ex power supply. All three components are IP65 rated. One or two intrinsically safe MI3 sensing heads can be powered by one power supply and the sensor cables can be up to 30m (98-ft.) long. The MI3 series comprises pyrometers for various spectral ranges and applications, including the 1M and 2M shortwave models with an excellent 100:1 resolution and 10 ms response time, which are suitable for monitoring temperatures up to 1,800°C (3272°F). They operate in ambient temperatures up to +180°C (356°F) and communication boxes are available with RS-485, Modbus, Profibus, Ethernet TCP/IP, and Profinet IO interfaces, and with four galvanically-isolated analog outputs. Automatic head detection and digital communication between sensor and box enable plug and play. For more details, visit http://www.raytek.com/Raytek/en-r0/GenericPages/MI3.htm?trck=mi3flash
