Paper Abstract

Infrared thermometry has a long history of being used for high-temperature applications where no other conventional form of temperature measurement would prove effective or be safe. However, until recent years, instruments for precision measurements in the low tem-peratures were not available. Industrial leaders have been improving the accuracy and precision of infrared thermometers. Also the necessary size of the target has been minimized at good working distances. Sighting systems on the instruments have been improved so an end-user can identify the exact target being measured. With all of these improvements, a new generation of infrared thermometers has evolved. Complete system control and wide temperature range capabilities are now available.
