Flexible but tough temperature sensors

Flexible but tough temperature sensors The MLE infrared temperature sensors from Calex Electronics are designed to be used in areas that are not accessible to other temperature sensors. These two-part units have small separate sensing heads connected to their larger electronics modules by a flexible cable. This allows the heads to be used in confined spaces, where many infrared sensors cannot fit. Thanks to their ingenious design, these small heads can also move relative to their electronics modules, without interference to their readings. This allows them to be used on moving arms and machinery, to get to the areas, and take the readings that other temperature sensors cannot. While the MLE sensing heads are small, they are also tough. A stainless steel housing sealed to IP65 gives them good protection from the rigours of use in heavy industry, and allows them to be washed down with other equipment when hygiene is important. They can also operate in elevated ambient temperatures up to 70degC without the need for any additional cooling.
