Exergen Corp. (Watertown, MA) has announced the Extreme IRt/c non-contact temperature sensor. A custom-designed housing protects the sensor from extreme vibrations, shifts in pressure, and other acute ambient changes. The sensor was originally developed for a defense contractor whose client needed to measure the temperature of equipment mounted on the exterior of military aircraft.

The self-powered Extreme IRt/c has a sensing range of -50 to 1200 °F (-45 to 650 °C). The hermetically sealed device provides resolution of 0.00018°C, instantaneously updates, and has a response time of 100 milliseconds.
