Resources for IR Technology and Noncontact Infrared Temperature Measurement

Infrared (IR) sensors have been utilized successfully in noncontact temperature measurement in industrial and research settings and provide the following benefits:

  • Saving time - typical IR temperature measurement takes less than 500 mSec.
  • Ability to measure moving targets
  • Ability to measure hazardous or inaccessible objects
  • Ability to measure high temperatures (greater than 1300°C/2372°F)
  • No energy interference or energy loss
  • No risk of contamination or damage from contact with the target
