Non Contact Infrared (IR) Sensors for Temperature Measurement

Infrared measurement devices for non-contact temperature measurement.

infrared temperature sensor - Single Colour Pyrometers

Infrared Thermometers

Infrared thermometers, or pyrometers, are non-contact infrared sensors capable of single-point temperature measurements. These IR sensors find utility across a wide array of applications owing to their varied laser technologies and filters. In many cases, infrared sensors are sufficient for controlling entire processes through point temperature measurements, offering an unbeatable price-to-performance ratio compared to IR cameras. Despite differing in optics, electronics, technology, size, and housing, these IR sensors share a common signal-processing chain. Their compact nature enables easy integration into diverse application environments.

Infrared (IR) Cameras for Thermography

While traditional cameras capture visible light, infrared cameras operate in higher wavelength regions to measure surface temperature based on detected radiation. These IR cameras capture images that can be translated into temperature images, often represented using false color schemes. Thermal imaging cameras excel in identifying areas of warmth or coldness, making them invaluable for various applications:
Stationary installations of USB infrared cameras offer galvanically separated process interfaces, enabling transmission of temperature information as 0/4-20 mA or 0-10 V signals. Additionally, these thermal imaging cameras support area-related emissivities and reference temperature measurements through voltage input, further enhancing their versatility.
