Infrared Thermometers and Their Many Varieties

Model ST-880 IR thermometers with Built-in laser pointer
Infrared thermometers as the name suggest are those temperature-gauging instruments that use infrared rays. They give you the exact reading of any object whose temperature is to be measured in digital form. The infrared thermometer are very popular these days for their ability to measure temperature in a no-contact manner, i.e. you can measure the temperature of an object even without touching it.

Nowadays, there is a wide variety of  infrared thermometer available in the market catering to the demand in different areas of applications. They differ in functions, shapes and sizes. While some of the advanced versions are great for gauging temperature of human bodies, others are great for moving objects. The pistol shaped thermometer is very popular in taking the temperature of ‘those hard to reach places’. Then there are different varieties that are used in large manufacturing units. Some even have videos attached to them translate heat signals into easy to view color-coded pictures.

Infrared Thermometers and Factors That Affect IR Thermometers Reading Accuracy

Infrared thermometers are popular non-contact temperature gauging instruments that are very much in vogue these days. And there are many factors that affect their reading accuracy. Model ST-882 IR Thermometers with Overrange indicator, Auto data hold

•    Field-of-view: The distance between the target and the measuring device is very important for getting accurate readings with infrared thermometer. This is called the field of view. So you have to see to it that the target is larger than the spot size the unit is measuring. Hence if the target is small, you should get as close as possible for accuracy in measurement.

•    Distance from spot ratio: Infrared thermometer operate in a particular style by collecting infrared energy from a circular measurement spot and then focusing it on the detector. It is to be mentioned here that optical resolution is measured as the ratio of the distance from instrument to the object compared to the size of the spot being measured (D: S ratio). Hence, larger the ratio number the better the instrument's resolution and far better would be the accuracy.

•    Focus feature: This is comparatively a new feature that has been developed to help in getting accuracy in reading. As per this additional feature you can get accurate measurement of small target areas without including unwanted background temperatures.

Remember all these factors while using infrared thermometer and rest assured you can never fail to obtain the most apt measurements.

Detecting Temperatures Made Easy with Infrared Thermometers

Infrared Thermometers to Detect Temperature

Model ST-880 Infrared Thermometers with Built-in laser pointer
Infrared Thermometers are today being increasingly used to detect temperatures in a variety of applications. This is due to its ease of use and the fact that Infrared Thermometers are non-contact devices that measure temperature without touching the object being measured. This is an excellent tool in special situations when the object whose temperature is to be taken is on the move.

Infrared Thermometer can be especially effective while gauging the temperature of a sick child when he/she has fever. As children rarely stand still, getting a quick accurate reading is obviously a better option compared to the other traditional methods like digital thermometers or mercury thermometers.

The process involves simply pointing the Infrared Thermometer at the forehead without even touching. The accurate temperature is then shown on the display of the Infrared Thermometer. You can get the temperature both in Celsius and Fahrenheit scales of measurement. And yes, Infrared Thermometers are available with alarms that emit audible warnings, if the temperature reaches a certain level. Another available option is a memory that can store up to 32 readings. This allows for convenient comparisons of previous readings.

Infrared Thermometers various usage
