They are especially useful for applications in which quick spot temperature readings are desired or where conventional temperature sensors cannot be easily used.
- Optical resolution or distance-to-spot
- Spectral range
- Laser sighting
- Wide temperature ranges to choose from
- Multiple laser point options
Infrared thermometers use a lens to focus infrared energy emitted from an object onto a detector called a thermopile. The detector then converts that energy into an electrical signal which, after compensating for the ambient temperature, is displayed in units of temperature. Filtering and signal processing amplifies and stabilizes the signal for more accurate and linear readings.
