UKAS Certification as Standard Offered on Non-Contact Thermometer

Aug 14 2016

AMETEK Land (USA), the leading industrial infrared non-contact temperature measurement specialist, has 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 petrochemical and refractories, the Cyclops C100L portable non-contact thermometer provides UKAS certification against three temperature points as specified by AMETEK Land, which are 650 °C, 1200 °C and 1450 °C (1202 °F, 2192 °F and 2642 °F). Those temperature points were selected based on the most commonly requested temperature range for UKAS certification of the Cyclops C100L based on extensive certification experience stretching back over 40 years. Each Cyclops C100L shipped will be supplied with an individual UKAS certificate linked to the instrument’s serial number.

Richard Gagg, Global IR Product Manager for AMETEK Land, said: “This is the first time we have provided certification with a new product as standard and at no extra charge. 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.”

All new orders of the full suite of Cyclops models, including C100L, also will be supplied with a free-of-charge, heat-resistant / thermal protective jacket, as standard. The jacket, provides protection against excessive heat and dust, is used extensively in the steel, foundry and glass industries.

Both the UKAS certification on Cyclops C100L and protective jacket are supplied as free additions on new orders, with no change to the existing selling price.

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’s certification laboratory in the United Kingdom is certified to the international standard ISO / IEC 17025:2005 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories) and by the national accreditation body United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to offer a comprehensive service for the traceable certification of infrared thermometers, thermal imagers, scanners and blackbody sources over the range -10 °C to 2500 °C (14 °F to 4532 °F). With the certified lowest calibration uncertainty outside the National Physics Laboratory for temperatures above 500°C, AMETEK Land is recognised as the industry leader in accuracy.

AMETEK Land Cyclops C100L is a high-quality, portable, non-contact thermometer that provides precision spot temperature measurement with unmatched accuracy and reliability. It 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, whilst 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, analyse and record live temperature readings.
