From Balluff Inc., thermal remote sensor system speeds mold changeover time and eliminates the need to rewire thermocouples in injection molding applications. Consisting of transmitting and receiving amplifiers, the system allows immediate, noncontact temperature data transmission for up to six Type J thermocouples simultaneously. Vital temperature feedback is provided from molds, dies or other movable-tooling applications where hardwired connections are impractical or impossible.
