SPOT AL EQS

ALUMINIUM APPLICATIONS PYROMETER FOR EXTRUDERS AND ROLLING MILLS

BUILDING ON THE VAST EXPERTISE AMETEK LAND HAS IN MEASURING ACCURATE TEMPERATURE OF ALUMINIUM AT AN EXTRUDER, QUENCH OR STRIP MILL, THE SPOT AL EQS NOW HAS ALL THREE MEASUREMENT MODES IN ONE DIGITAL PYROMETER, MEASURING FROM 200 TO 700 ºC / 392 TO 1292 ºF.

Utilising the latest cutting edge design in detectors combined with the most advanced data processing algorithms has created an extremely accurate and repeatable pyrometer for use in the low emissivity Aluminium industry.

Key Features

  • Pre-set Algorithms - Three dedicated pre-set algorithms for Aluminium Extrusion, Quench and Strip
  • Through-the-lens integrated camera - Easy target alignment and verification in low and high brightness environments
  • Patented* pulsed high brightness LED sighting - Indicates both target size and location using an easily visible pattern; no laser safety requirements
  • Signal processing - All processing features are integrated into SPOT. No need for any separate processor unit
  • High quality optics - Features a durable sapphire protection window and ensures precise targeting and quality measurements
  • Integrated web server - Allows for remote adjustment and readings via any web browser
  • Rear display & controls - Target viewing, temperature reading and set-up through simple menu driven choices; no need for separate software
  • Power options - Powered by either 24 VDC or Power over Ethernet
* Patent Pending
 

Key Benefits

  • Specialized Aluminium Algorithms - provide accurate digital temperature readings of low and variable emissivity Aluminium allowing optimisation of press speed and quality of the extrusion
  • Single person installation at instrument location - local display and settings; no need for a second person in the control room
  • Industry standard 4-20 mA linear temperature output in addition to other outputs
  • Modbus TCP - widely used and popular industrial protocol over Ethernet
  • Durable Sapphire Protection Window - resists scratches, solvents and easily cleaned with a soft cloth
  • Single Sensor Solution - Ideal for use with customer PLCs or DCS systems; no requirement for a separate processor. Easy to implement in small or large organizations
  • Software - SPOTViewer provides remote display and data logging of one SPOT pyrometer, whereas SPOTServer provides for multiple and allows customised algorithms.
