0

The latest addition to Variohm’s offering is the IRN2-C linear analog and digital infrared sensor from motorsports and aeronautical sensor specialist Texense.

The IRN2-C provides a 4…20 mA output over a standard temperature range of -30 to +220°C in a compact M12 x 34 mm subminiature housing. It is part of a range of contact-free IR temperature sensors that suit the various emissivity characteristics of materials for race track, tire, brake and other components used in demanding motorsport and automotive R&D applications. Based on straightforward installation with compact and durable M12 stainless steel housings, these include voltage and analog output devices with various target temperature ranges up to +1,200°C as standard. Each sensor type also caters for the optimum measurement distance. The thermopile with silicone lens technology used in Texense sensors is extremely robust, with typical shock ratings to 500 g and vibration up to 20 Gpp5’ – well proven in race track and test.

In particular the IRN2-C offers an accuracy of ± 2 %FS with an ambient temperature error of ± 0.5°C. Sensitivity is 64 µA/°C, response time 50m/s (0-90%) and field of view is 4:1 at 50mm.

Other Texense sensor products available from Variohm EuroSensor include CANbus-interfaced and wireless temperature, pressure and fluid sensors used across professional and club motorsports, aeronautics and other sports industries, such as cycling dynamics.
