Overview

The non-contact Impac® KTS 218 and KTG 218 infrared temperature switches recognize hot objects within each of their measuring beams. This triggers the switching process. The switch level on each device can be adjusted with a potentiometer and the switch status is indicated by an LED. 

Benefits

  • Adjust switch level via the potentiometer
  • Use in compact spaces
  • Easily align
  • Select from ten optics
