A Simple Method to Calibrate an Infrared Thermometer1

An infrared thermometer (IRT) was calibrated by simultaneously measuring the temperature of a black cavity with the IRT and with fine thermocouples, while the cavity was being heated from 5 to 50 C, over a 2-hour period. Both temperatures were recorded on cassette tape by a microprocessor-based data collector, transferred to computer disk storage, and used to determine the calibration equation. The entire procedure required about 4 hours from setup to completion, including production of a graph of the equation and the results.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
