An infrared pyrometer measures temperature in applications where it is not possible or practical to contact the target using a thermocouple or other contact sensor. A typical infrared pyrometer consists of 4 temperature sensors. During the measuring process, the detector absorbs and convert infrared radiation into an electrical signal.
There are various designs when it comes to IR pyrometers. When you are renting or purchasing an infrared pyrometer, it is important to understand the different functions and features for different applications.
A pyrometer is a type of thermometer. Pyrometer and radiation thermometer are used interchangeably by distributors.
These are usually the handheld infrared pyrometer for measuring several target areas. They are convenient for carrying around if your testing is taking place in different locations.
Fixed mounted pyrometers are ideal for temperature process application in a confined space when the priority is accuracy and durability. These IR pyrometers offer continuous output signals.
