Pyrometers Enable Direct Measurement of Advanced Materials


Addition to Product Portfolio Supports Closed-Loop Control at Leading Customers

FORT COLLINS, Colo. Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. announced the launch of its new Onyx-M pyrometer series for measurement into the mid-IR and long-IR spectral space. These new pyrometers complement AE’s existing portfolio of industrial pyrometers by enabling direct measurement of glass, plastics and other advanced materials. The Onyx-M includes a suite of analog and digital communications options, including optional fieldbus protocols. These capabilities enable closed-loop control for critical processes and support AE’s vision of a digital enterprise by delivering real-time data collection and analytics for critical thermal processes.

The Onyx-M provides customers with a wide variety of communication outputs suitable for a host of needs, including analog, digital and common fieldbus protocols (Modbus TCP, PROFIBUS, Ethernet/IP, and PROFINET). The Onyx-M can further be integrated into AE’s Connected Power platform for on-site or cloud-based scalable data collection and analytics, and can also be configured in a wide variety of other mid-IR and long-IR wavelengths for other industrial applications.
