The Mikron PhotriX® pyrometers offer unmatched precision and speed thanks to their superior signal-to-noise ratio. They're ideally suited for industrial applications requiring closed-loop control of thermal processes.

A standard PhotriX system includes sensor electronics with an anti-reflective coated lens, the communication interface module (CIM), RS-232 interface cable, universal power supply, and the TemperaSure™ data acquisition and graphing interface software.


  • Gain insight into process behavior
  • Achieve superior performance
  • Integrate easily with our robust and flexible package design
  • Minimize the effect of emissivity errors and improve measurement accuracy
  • Take advantage of the highest quality optics with excellent rejection of stray light


  • Lowest temperature capability short-wavelength pyrometer
  • Five spectral response options
  • Configurable collection and precision optics
  • High speed (1 ms)
  • Better than 1°C resolution
