Marathon MR1F fiber-optic ratio thermometer measures temperature in hot, hostile en-vironments; in high electromagnetic fields; and in other difficult applica-tions where the line of sight to the target may be obscured. The MR1F consists of a small, rugged optical head; a field-replaceable, fiber-optic cable; and a separate electronics enclosure with built-in user interface. Proprietary signal processing electronics support advanced features such as remote sensor set-up, real-time display of target temperature, and field-calibration software.
