Temperature Phantom

The Phantom Temperature Sensor it’s an amazing way to keep tracking of the heat of your machines and analysis points. For versatility, we have 2 configurations for this Phantom: Temperature NonContact and Temperature Thermocouple.

Here we will show you how to set, attach and configure these two types, both the physical installation and the Digivibe configuration.

If you want to know how to register this Phantom on your Database, please visit the manual for the Phantom Wizard

 

Temperature Thermocouple

The Temperature Thermocouple sensor is the easiest way to analyze the temperature of a fixed point in your machine.

  • From -210℃ to 1,800℃
  • An accuracy of 15%
  • 3.6 V Li Battery that lasts up to 3 years
  • Compatibility with K/J/N/R/S/T/E/B thermocouple types
  • IP67 Rating

Our Phantom Temperature Thermocouple includes one Type K sensor optimized for a 3/16″ screw, attached to a wire that can be up to 25m long, ending with a LEMO plug that allows attachment to our Phantom Sensor.

This kind of sensor is useful to set in very precise locations on your machines, measuring the surface temperature with high accuracy and sending information every 5 minutes

 

Temperature NonContact

Our Phantom Temperature NonContact (Or just NC) allows you to measure temperature from a good distance for those machine difficult to reach or with no way to attach the plaque of any thermocouple.

  • From -210℃ to 1,800℃
  • An accuracy of 15%
  • 3.6 V Li Battery that lasts up to 3 years
  • Can Measure from distances up to 6 m
  • IP67 Rating

As stated in this brief resume of the Phantom Temperature Sensor (NC) it can measure at ranges up to 6 meters. However, it’s highly recommendable to do it as close as 1 cm away from the surface. This way you can ensure the heat received corresponds to the surface and not the ambient surrounding the machine.

 

 

Digivibe Configuration

Once you got your Phantom Temperature Sensor attached to your machine, you can configure your machine to hold this sensor. We have two possible configurations: Set on Point or Set on Machine.

Set on Machine

To achieve this you need to right click on the machine you want and then click Configure to open the Machine Configuration window. There you can find several options, one of them being Extra Parameters.

Click the plus (add) symbol and this will display the Add parameter window, where we can find new options for data analysis with Phantom Sensors. On the left side, we can see a list of Phantom Sensors with different groups of analysis, and the left side will show options to name and describe the sensors. Here select the Temperature group and then click Set Phantom.

This will display the Set device window. Here the sensor groups we created before being displayed. Select the desired option and this will show us just the sensor types we’re looking for. In this example, we can only find Temperature Phantom Sensors.

Select the sensor you need from the list and mark the Activate check box. Then click OK. This will send you back to Add parameter window, click OKagain to close, and finally click OK in the Point Configuration window to end.

Set on Analysis Point

To add a sensor to an analysis point is needed to right lick the machine you want to change, click on Configure and here you will find your analysis points with the button Set. Click the button to open the Phantom Configuration Window where you can find several options for this point. To add a Temperature Phantom, click the add button in the Extra Values area.

Click the plus (add) symbol and this will display the Add parameter window, where we can find new options for data analysis with Phantom Sensors. On the left side, we can see a list of Phantom Sensors with different groups of analysis, and the left side will show options to name and describe the sensors. Here select the Temperature group and then click Set Phantom.

This will display the Set device window. Here the sensor groups we created before being displayed. Select the desired option and this will show us just the sensor types we’re looking for. In this example, we can only find Temperature Phantom Sensors.

Select the sensor you need from the list and mark the Activate check box. Then click OK. This will send you back to Add parameter window, click OKagain to close, and finally click OK in the Point Configuration window to end.
