The OS36 is an infrared sensor with thermocouple outputs with the advantages of non-contact temperature measurement. The OS36 produces a thermocouple output signal that can be used with any standard J, K, T or E thermocouple instrumentation. The thermocouple output option elmiminates the need for external power sources. The infrared sensor’s accuracy is specified for target emissivity 0.9. For other emissivity values, readings can be corrected to provide accurate measurements. Even without correction, the readings are extremely repeatable, for use in process and quality control applications.

The OS36 has a calibrated sensing range of -18 to 250°C (0 to 480°F) and operating temperature range of -18 to 85°C (0 to 185°F). These sensors can achieve higher ambient temperature ratings with the OS36-APC up to 538°C (1000°F) with water cooling or 400°C (750°F) with air-cooling. The housing is hermetically sealed and NEMA 4, IP65 and IP67 rated.

The OS36 is designed for applications such as rough steel plates, brick, paints, quartz, water, asbestos,unpolished stainless steel wood and more.

I don't see neither in the data sheet nor on this page what is the type of the output signal other than blurry "computer interface and analog/digital" outputs are available. am I missing it? can you please advice is 4..20mA is possible?

Asked by: Alex123
Hi Alex123 I apologize for confusion. The output is a thermocouple signal. The type of thermocouple is indicated by letter in the part# (J,K,T, or E). Best regards, OMEGA

Does the IR sensor (OS36) work in vacuum chamber?

Asked by: kevin666
Thank you for your inquiry kevin666. Unfortunately, the OS36 does not work in a vacuum chamber.

what is the max range of the OS36-10. data sheet has a dimension of 10 X. 10 X of what?

Asked by: WAM1134
Our Product Manager as advised that it's not Max distance, 10x is way of mentioning spot to distance ratio. The way this infrared works is you can keep this sensor to the distance 10x of the diameter of spot you are measuring. So if spot you are nearing is 1 inch diameter, the sensor needs to be around 10 inches away from spot to measure this accurately. Please contact our Tech Support if you have any further questions, thank you!
