Meet the IGAR 6 Advanced

IGAR 6 pyrometer

We are excited to share that we released the new IGAR 6 Advanced pyrometer today! The IGAR 6 Advanced is the latest addition to Series 6 family of pyrometers and is a highly accurate pyrometer for non-contact temperature measurement on metals, ceramics, graphite, etc. It is also our first pyrometer with a unique Smart Mode that allows for automatic transition between 1-color and 2-color operating modes!

What makes it so special?
The IGAR 6 Advanced is a digital, compact pyrometer with 1-color, 2-color, and Smart operating modes for non-contact temperature measurement in ranges between 100 and 2000 °C. Smart mode allows the pyrometer to measure temperature in 1-color mode at low temperatures (100 to 250 °C) and then transition to 2-color mode to provide the
advantages of measurements in ratio mode at higher temperatures (280 to 2000 °C). The automatic, smooth transition from 1-color to 2-color measurement occurs between 250 and 280 °C.

IGAR 6 smart mode

Here’s a quick list of IGAR 6 Advanced features:

  • Automatic emissivity determination
  • Very fast 2 ms response time for highly dynamic processes
  • Best optics in its class with manual focus capability
  • 4 digit LED display
  • Robust, stainless steel sensor for harsh environments (IP65/NEMA4)
  • Optional line optics

These additional features make this instrument unique and create opportunities to measure processes not considered previously and those not measured with appropriate accuracy. Sample applications include induction heating, hardening, tempering/annealing, brazing, sintering, vacuum processes, coating, and laser heat treatment.

We are quite excited by this new pyrometer and hope you are too. We invite you to learn more!
