Industry needs to have a strict control over the different production process areas in order to guarantee the successful manufacture of a product. The steel industry, mills and any enterprise as a whole that works with high temperature products must know and control the temperatures in each area of its process. The use of handheld pyrometers or disposable temperature probes for occasional measurements is commonplace, with its associated overrun cost. Furthermore, when an average value is needed, these captures are limited to a subset of points of the measured item, therefore generating possible sources of error and inaccuracy. Not only this, but this taking of discrete measurements throughout a process can very well run continuously in time. TECNALIA provides the possibility to design and implement automated process control systems where temperature can be a critical factor both in the production process as well as in the traceability or quality [...]
