Land Instruments International of the UK is one of the oldest and most highly respected makers of thermal infrared radiation thermometers.
They started in the 1950s with simple, single spot measuring devices to compete with Honeywell and Leeds & Northrup. In the 1960s and 1970’s they expanded their line into state of the art industrial-only devices aimed at process monitoring and control sensing in the Process Industries and earned a stellar reputation in the Steel, Glass, Ceramics and Mineral processing areas, worldwide.
In the 1980s and 1990s they expanded their products to include the noted Cyclops(TM) portable IR Thermometers, in association with the Minolta Camera Company, that virtually replaced the familiar Optical Pyrometer nearly everywhere in industry and R&D.
In the 1990s they also entered the Infrared Thermography business as well and have broken new grounds with both their line-scanning products and more conventional, 2-D imaging products. They were changed from a private company into a more public one when Ametek purchased them nearly two years ago.
Along the way, Land’s people gathered an enormous range of know-how in applications problem solving and they share some of that in their unique literature, available on both their UK and USA websites.
Here’s a listing of the topics there and links to each one as a downloadable PDF file.
