IR modules are infrared devices, such as dataloggers, that are used to track and measure data sets. These modules can measure temperature, moisture levels, gas ratings and industrial process parameters, for instance loop monitoring steam, heat, air and water expenditures.
The data recording is not interrupted during the recovery process and provides a continuous cycle of information. IR modules can store information logs for extended time periods. The infrared receiver of the IR module is used for remote control detection.
IR modules can be applied to any type of industry where continuous measurement of specific metrics is required. Typical uses of IR modules are found in weather stations, hydrographic stations, nuclear plants, road-traffic counting devices, environmental equipment, plant machinery and geological instruments.
Many different types of IR modules exist, but the most common versions include:
