Pyrometers or Infrared Thermometers help measure object temperatures in applications where contact measurements cannot be undertaken due to:
- risk of contamination (epidemics & contagious diseases)
- hazards like high voltage
- where the object is at a good distance
- in case of moving objects like rollers, moving machinery, conveyor belts, etc.
- where thermocouples (or other sensors) can’t be used due to very high temperatures
