KD-150C is extremely compact and low-cost for an amplifierintegrated water-cooled sensors. KD150C directly detects infrared radiation and outputs ON-OFF signals, which is useful in applications such as detection of passage or position of red-hot steel materials including ingots, slabs, steel plates and mold steel.

The KD-150C Water Cooled hot metal detector has the following features:

  • The smallest of water-cooled sensors with built-in amplifiers and enclosed in a robust case that can withstand severe operating conditions.
  • Reasonably priced and streamline in design the KD-150C is a High performance Detector with the capability to detect steel materials with a temperature as low as 150°C (minimum).
  • Performance comparable to full-size HMDs with a Long detecting distance, sensitivity adjustment feature and high sensitivity which offers excellent stability.
  • Attachable airless dust hoods and air purge hoods prevent the build-up of dirt deposits on the lens.
