June 19, 2014—Germantown, MD – The handheld thermometers read temperatures of hard to reach or moving machinery for a variety of industrial applications. The MAC050 and MAC100 add to the MachineryMate® line of tools used to assist in machinery health.
Using laser sighting for accurate detection, the rugged thermometers can measure up to 1832° F (1000° C). Also capable of contact readings, the meters are supplied with K-type thermocouples for applications where emissivity is unknown. The high performance MAC100 is capable of Bluetooth connectivity for data streaming, analysis and trending, and has user selectable emissivity.
MAC meters are an affordable and safe solution for obtaining temperature data. Machine equipment conditions can be quickly gauged, reducing unplanned downtime and increasing efficiency.
Paper machines, steel processing – dryer sections, hot strip measurements, blowers
General machinery, bearing temperature - compressors, motors, pumps and fans
Electrical measurements – high resistance joints, unphase balance, poor electrical connections
