- Model IMPAC 8 pro Series - Portable, Digital Pyrometers for Non-Contact Temperature Measurement, 250 to 2500°C



Advanced Energy’s battery-driven Impac series 8 pro pyrometers offer wide temperature ranges and high accuracy. The series features Impac IS 8 pro, IGA 8 pro, and IS-8GS pro. Fully digital signal processing. Integrated graphic display. Bright, optimized viewfinder with exact spot indication. Aluminum die-cast housing for harsh condition. Short response times and quick detection of temperature differences.

The Impac® series 8 pro pyrometers are high-quality, battery-driven portables for non-contact temperature measurement. Thanks to full digital processing, they offer wide temperature ranges and high accuracy and measuring results can be shown and analyzed directly on site.

For high temperatures, the Impac IS 8 pro is available in two temperature ranges between 600 and 2500°C. For medium temperatures, the Impac IGA 8 pro offers a range from 250 to 1600°C. The Impac IS 8-GS pro is a special version for use in foundries.
