AMETEK Land Introduces New Cyclops L Portable Non-Contact Thermometers

Monday, July 28, 2014

AMETEK Land, a leader in non-contact temperature measurement, combustion efficiency and environmental emissions monitoring, has launched the latest update to its Cyclops™ family of portable, high-precision, non-contact thermometers – the Cyclops L™.

With its internal data logging capabilities, optional software and configurable route modes, the Cyclops L further establishes AMETEK Land as the industry leader in high-quality, portable, non-contact temperature measurement.

There are four new models in the new Cyclops L family, including the 055L Meltmaster with a temperature range of 1000 to 2000oC / 1832 to 3632oF; the 100L for high-temperature applications in the range of 550 to 3000oC / 1022 to 5432oF; the 160L for lower temperatures than the 100L in the range of 200 to 1400oC /392 to 2552oF; and the 390L designed for furnace applications with a temperature range of 450 to 4000oC /842 to 2532oF.

Cyclops L family features the new Route Manager, which enables users to configure a path/route around a plant by identifying the location with description, an emissivity value, a window correction factor (if applicable), and a unique identifier (a description). Route Management mode allows for complete repeatability of readings, making the thermometer the ideal tool for multiple locations requiring regular and reliable monitoring.

The Cyclops L thermometer stores up to 9,999 temperature measurements. All measurements can be downloaded to optional logger software for further analysis and comparison. The Land Cyclops Logger Software allows users to connect a Land Cyclops portable thermometer to a personal computer or mobile phone and to view, analyze and record live temperature readings.

Connections between the Cyclops L model thermometers and a mobile device/computer can be either wireless (via Bluetooth®) or via a USB cable.
These reliable, high-accuracy battery-powered thermometers have applications in a wide range of industries, including metal foundries, steel making, glass refractories, petrochemical processing, and laboratory/research & development. They have precise, narrow field of view, continuously focusable optics with through-the-lens sighting for accurate sample point selection. Long-term, drift-free measurement assures confidence in the readings.

The new Cyclops thermometers benefit from a new industrial rubber casing cover for increased protection from accidental damage. A new lens hood adds further protection. Cyclops L thermometers can be certified by US and UK ISO 17025 accredited laboratories to recognized international standards.
