The thermometer a device for measuring temperature has long been known, initially, the measurement was carried out by the color of incandescent material and compared with the reference pattern. The development of modern technologies allowed to create new devices – infrared thermometer. The non-contact infrared thermometer is a device that helps a non-contact and destructive way to measure the temperature of various environments and bodies. The Principle of operation of the apparatus is in the use of electronic thermometer which receives thermal radiation and converts it into an electrical signal.
This principle allows to obtain a more accurate measurement is quite simple and fast. In the technical literature, such a instruments is often called an infrared thermometer. His invention at the end of the past century made it possible to successfully replace the temperature sensors and thermometers, which for several reasons cannot be used in technological processes. With the release of the infrared pyrometers became possible temperature control in hot and hazardous areas, in remote places and moving bodies.
Infrared thermometers produce two types: stationary and portable. Their use ensures safe monitoring of technological processes and the ability to obtain accurate and objective data. The scope of devices is extensive. They are used for measuring the temperature of solid surfaces, fluids and gaseous substances in different sectors and areas. For visual viewing and generalization data, all information can be displayed on the computer.
Temperature measurements in environments hazardous to health, description, diagnostics of equipment, find hot and cold spots on the object – this is not a complete list of possible works by using such a device. It is hard to imagine the work of industrial and energy plants, housing and communal services and even trade without the use of infrared pyrometers.
The use of infrared thermometers has the advantage over other devices is a possibility to carry out measurements without crashing the process and stop production. Instantly measure the temperature of operating equipment and its timely prevention of contributing to increased productivity. The use of such equipment, even from the point of view of security are obvious, because remotely measuring the temperature of a person is not afraid to get burned or injured. Many devices for convenience are equipped with a laser pointer
