Compact CI IR Sesnsor

Raytek® Compact CI and CM

Noncontact Temperature Measurement for Industrial Applications & OEMs

Compact. Powerful. Easy to install and affordable.

  • Improve process control with instant noncontact temperature readings
  • Non-contact temperature sensors that replace traditional contact probes and thermocouples
  • Reduce maintenance with sensor status/self diagnostic LED indicator*
  • CI model is available in Asia Pacific and Americas only.

Designed for easy integration into a standard 4-wire system, Compact CI and CM sensors can easily replace traditional contact probes with a J-type or K-type thermocouple output in a variety of manufacturing processes, reading temperatures from -20 to 500 °C (-4 to 932 °F).

Raytek Compact CI

Raytek Compact CI is available in Asia Pacific and Americas only.

The Raytek CI noncontact infrared pyrometer is compact and easy to install. The CI unit's onboard electronics are protected by a rugged IP 65 (NEMA-4) stainless steel housing, allowing the sensor to function in ambient temperatures to 70°C (160°F) without cooling. Because the CI unit has the same 50 Ohm output impedance as a thermocouple, it functions accurately— without offset errors—when used in conjunction with the thermocouple break protection circuitry in most controllers, displays, and transmitters.

Key Features:

  • Read temperature ranges from 0°C to 500°C (32°F to 932°F)
  • Withstand ambient temperatures up to 70 °C (160 ºF) without cooling and up to 260°C (500°F) with water cooling
  • Compact, rugged steel housing with IP65 (NEMA-4) rating
  • Accessories for cooling and air purging
  • Powered by 12–24 VDC at 20 mA
  • Response time: 350 mSec (95%)
  • 4:1 optics at 90% energy

Raytek Compact CM

Although small in size, the Compact CM is loaded with advanced features set for temperature monitoring in OEM applications. These include a 24 volt DC alarm output triggered by target temperature or head ambient temperature, peak hold, valley hold or variable averaging signal processing, adjustable target emissivity settings and adjustable window transmissivity setting. An RS232 digital interface allows the user to configure all programmable sensor variables with the powerful DataTemp® Multidrop software included with each sensor. The built-in sensor health LED provides a convenient on-line indicator of the sensor's operating status and aids in troubleshooting initial sensor set up.

Key Features:

  • Read temperature ranges from -20 to 500 °C (-4 to 932 °F)
  • Withstand ambient temperatures up to 70 °C (160 ºF) without cooling and up to 260°C (500°F) with water cooling
  • Compact, rugged steel housing with IP65 (NEMA-4) rating
  • Accessories for air purging and lens protection
  • Powered by 12–24 VDC at 20 mA
  • Response time: 150 mSec (95%)
  • 13:1 optics at 90% energy
  • Advanced feature set for OEM applications
  • DataTemp Multidrop software compatible
  • Sensor status/self diagnostic LED indicator
