AST A5-IN Multi-wavelength plug and play pyrometer for Aluminium Applications

The A5-IN is a Multi-wavelength plug-and-play pyrometer that uses an application-specific database derived from years of experience in real applications. It uses special algorithms to accurately calculate both the actual temperature and emissivity of the surface. A5-IN can hold multiple databases so that a single instrument can be easily switched between multiple applications like Molten metal, Extruded profiles, Rolled aluminum surfaces, Continuous casting, Aluminum billets, Slabs, etc.

A5-IN also offers Bluetooth communication so that it can communicate with Android smartphones or laptops for viewing the measured temperature and for adjusting the parameters/selection of the database and data logging.
