The HMD-1000 is used in monitoring the presence of product over 225°C. It is enclosed in a mill-duty, water-cooled, air-purged housing which is designed for the harsh conditions of steel mills.
The detection distance can be adjusted according to the sight field and the type of product. The HMD-1000 is equipped with an aiming laser for ease of installation.
The Hot Metal Detector has two signal gains available, either “normal” or “high” gain.
The normal setting, which is the default, should be used for most situations involving hot metal that is orange-red in color.
The high gain setting should be used for situations where the metal is colder, such as after a quench or when the metal has cooled down to a grey color.
The threshold potentiometer adjusts the energy point at which the sensor detects the hot metal. The threshold can be adjusted on the back of the sensor.
