The MISS interface, with optical pyrometers placed along the cooling tunnel, receives identification data from castings on the molding line along with all the status signals of the Magaldi installation.
Bimetal thermometers and temperature-sensitive labels were followed later by machine-mounted optical pyrometers to display and, in some cases, to record surface temperatures throughout the process.
Hand-held IR pyrometers are becoming available for applications where optical pyrometers have been more common, although optical pyrometers (also known as radiation thermometers) are faster and more reliable than IR types.
Other features include ooptions to enable the unit to be used for absolute or comparison calibration, surface sensors, optical pyrometers, resistance thermometers and thermocouples.
