IR Temperature Measurement for Metals Made Simple
Choosing and deploying the right sensor for Infrared temperature measurements on metal surfaces can be a complicated exercise. Most suppliers offer dozens of sensor options and some offer a range of IR cameras that could also be considered. It is easy to spend several thousand dollars on a sensor that does not measure accurately on a metal surface, but you can avoid this fate if you better understand four key technical issues. We’ll address the questions on sensor wavelength, spot size ratios, the IR camera vs. IR sensor question and the right time to consider a ratio pyrometer.
- Learn which sensor wavelength is appropriate for temperature measurement on metal surfaces
- Understand the concept of spot size ratio and how this applies to temperature measurement applications.
- Learn the advantages and disadvantages of using IR camera vs. a single spot IR sensor.
- Understand the basics of ratio pyrometry and which applications are best served by this measurement technology.
