app shares temperature data
AMETEK LAND, a manufacturer of non-contact temperature measurement for industries such as steel, glass and cement, has launched a new App for Cyclops, its portable thermometer.
The Cyclops Logger App, which is available to download free on Google play, is said to enhance Cyclops operation by making it easy to capture and share live data from a Land Cyclops portable thermometer via smartphones or tablets.
The app features a Route Mode management system which ensures temperature measurements are recorded at pre-configured locations. Single or multiple routes can be uploaded onto the app, with the option to preset against a variety of parameters such as emissivity and window correction. This provides configurable measurement routes for a plant or process, making it suitable for use in areas with multiple locations that require regular monitoring such as in coke production plants. Routes are configured in the Logger software and uploaded to the Cyclops thermometer, for easy viewing.
A four digit code assigned to each temperature reading along the route allows predefined information about the material’s emissivity at every location within the production process, along with date and time, to be recorded.
Once the temperature measurements have been taken and automatically recorded by the app, the data can be downloaded, again using the Bluetooth capability, to a desktop.
