Datapaq announces improved MicroMag thermocouple for automotive paint monitoring

July 03, 2013
Cambridge, UK - Extending the Oven Tracker XL2 system, Datapaq introduces the new and improved MicroMag thermocouple designed for use in automotive paint monitoring. Working extensively with key automotive paint operations worldwide, Datapaq has further extended the operating capability of the popular MicroMag thermocouple. The new encapsulated magnet design allows reliable direct use during production, even on wet painted and e-coated substrates. It eliminates any risk of either magnet damage or magnet loss when the probe is removed from a cured paint surface at the end of the oven process. The miniature surface and air thermocouple which employs state-of-the-art samarium-cobalt magnet technology can be placed into the tightest of recesses. It is therefore ideal for car body shell areas that are difficult to access. Due to its low thermal mass, the MicroMag provides response characteristics that challenge those of exposed junction thermocouples while it has the additional advantage of quick and easy attachment to ferrous substrates. Despite its compact size, 17 mm in diameter, the magnet ensures secure hold up to the maximum experienced paint and powder coating cure temperatures. An aluminum knob for easy routine rugged handling, even when wearing gloves, can be removed, if necessary, to suit application requirements.
