Neuron Infrared 380

The Neuron Infrared 380 sensor measures surface temperature on the object it is directed towards. It is designed for industrial temperature measurements, capable of measuring up to 380°C with an accuracy of up to ±1°C. It has a wide spectral range and 6° field of view.

General Description

The Neuron Infrared 380 is an energy efficient solution for infrared temperature measurement. The sensor is a high-performance temperature measuring device that uses infrared technology to detect and measure temperatures. One of the key features of this sensor is its ability to measure high temperature objects, with a range of -40°C to 380°C. This makes it suitable for use when the temperature sensor cannot physically connect to the measurement object, i.e. rotating equipment and saw blades.

Due to wireless transmission of the signal, it is also easy and timesaving to install, and sticks to the surface by a magnet at the backside of the sensor.


Principle of Operation

This infrared sensor is a high-performance temperature measuring device that uses infrared technology to detect and measure temperatures. It works by detecting and measuring the infrared radiation emitted by an object or environment. This radiation is then converted into an electrical signal, which is then processed to determine the temperature.

The sensor measure temperatures every 2 minutes and transmits this data to the Neuron Cloud through a Neuron Gateway.



  • Long life battery – up to 7 years lifetime
  • Continuous measurement and instant alarm
  • Adjustment of parameters such as measurement frequency on request
  • Define your own alarm levels in the Neuron app
  • Receive alerts as push notifications, emails or SMS
  • Easily connect the sensor to the system with the QR-code on the sensor. Ensures immediate and accurate registration in the app on your phone/PC/tablet
  • The sensor transmits data to your nearby Neuron Gateway which then again communicates with the Neuron Cloud

Neuron sensors are ready for use out of the box and will start logging data after registering the sensor in the app. Even though Neuron sensors deliver great range and long battery life, following some simple guidelines for mounting of the sensor and gateway can greatly improve signal coverage and lifetime of the sensor.

To ensure optimal antenna performance and signal strength, the sensor should be placed elevated with some distance to fixed objects. Keep in mind that RF-signals are greatly affected by close metallic surfaces.

For sensors with an external antenna, the antenna should be clear off the metallic surface.

For sensors operating in environments with greatly varying temperatures, care should be taken to avoid putting the sensor in unnecessary stress. Very high or low temperatures will affect the battery life and the signal strength of the sensor. While some sensors must be close to the source of heat or cold, other sensors have external probes which allow the sensor to be placed at a distance.

The small, compact blue Neuron sensors are fitted with fastening holes for use with cable ties. The sensors are also delivered with double-sided tape that may be used for fastening of the sensors.

All the black Neuron sensors, like the Neuron IR380 and Neuron Vibration, are fitted with a strong magnet at the back for easy fastening. If there is no magnetic surface, then double-sided tape is a good solution.
