Non-contact temperature measurement is one of the most common tasks performed by thermographers. While most infrared instrumentation is relatively easy to operate, accurate temperature measurement depends upon proper selection and use of the instrument as well as instrument calibration. This short course will focus on several key issues affecting the accuracy of radiometric temperature measurements and suggestions for reducing errors.
This course is a must for anyone wishing to make accurate non-contact temperature measurements.
This course will enable you to:
- select infrared equipment appropriate for specific applications
- identify common error sources when making non-contact temperature measurements
- measure and compensate for errors caused by emittance, transmittance and reflectance
- check radiometer performance against known temperature references
- understand alternate methods for cross-verifying radiometric temperature values
This material is intended for anyone wishing to use infrared equipment to accurately measure temperatures. Course will cover equipment selection and operation, equipment calibration, compensating for error sources and cross verification of radiometric temperature data.
