AMETEK LAND: Non-Contact Thermometer
AMETEK Land recently announced that buyers of its Cyclops C100L will receive a designated three-point UKAS certification to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 as standard. Widely used in industries such as metal and glass production, as well as in ceramics, petrochemical and refractories, the Cyclops C100L portable non-contact thermometer provides UKAS certification against three temperature points as specified by AMETEK Land, 650, 1200 and 1450°C (1202, 2192 and 2642°F). Those temperature points were selected based on the most commonly requested temperature range. Each Cyclops C100L shipped will be supplied with an individual UKAS certificate linked to the instrument’s serial number. UKAS Certification ensures that the Cyclops C100L temperature measurement system offers the best operating performance, improves the accuracy of customers’ measurement capabilities, and meets required national and international quality standards.
AMETEK Land Cyclops C100L is a high-quality, portable, non-contact thermometer that provides precision spot temperature measurement with unmatched accuracy and reliability. It reportedly incorporates user-friendly features such as precise view of target spot with simultaneous digital display of temperature in the viewfinder, choice of operating and calculating modes, digital output, and out of range alarms.
The Cyclops is capable of storing up to 9,999 measurement points inside the thermometer, making it the ideal tool for plants with multiple locations and a requirement for regular monitoring. The handheld units are suitable for either Bluetooth® or USB connector for data download/upload, while a Route mode—one of four: Single, Latch, Burst and Route—allows capture and storage of measurement data repeatedly at set locations around a plant.
AMETEK’s free-to-download Land Cyclops Logger Software delivers a technically advanced user experience, as it connects a Cyclops portable pyrometer to a PC or mobile device allowing the user to view, analyze and record live temperature readings. All new orders of the full suite of Cyclops models, including C100L, will also be supplied with a heat-resistant/thermal protective jacket as standard. The jacket reportedly provides protection against excessive heat and dust and is used extensively in the steel, foundry, and glass industries.
“This is the first time we have provided certification with a new product as standard and at no extra charge,” said Richard Gagg, global IR product manager. “Companies that choose our UKAS-certified Cyclops C100L will find that their instrument will be fully traceable, reducing risks to their business and ensuring peace of mind. When dealing with extremes of temperature that rely on accurate measurement, having instruments that are UKAS certified is essential to maintain the highest quality standards.”
AMETEK Land’s certification laboratory in the UK is certified to the international ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard and by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) national accreditation body to offer a comprehensive service for the traceable certification of infrared thermometers, thermal imagers, scanners and blackbody sources over the range of -10 to 2500°C (14 to 4532°F).
