  Working Principles
Click to ViewInfrared thermometers work based on black body radiation, According to which any material with a temperature above absolute zero has molecules moving within it. The higher the temperature, the faster the molecules move. The molecules emit infrared radiation as they move, and emit more radiation, including visible light, as they get hotter. This is why a heated metal emits a red or white glow. Infrared thermometers detect and measure this radiation. Infrared light can be focused, reflected or absorbed like visible light. Infrared thermometers employ a lens to focus infrared light from an object onto a detector known as a thermopile. The function of the thermopile is to absorb infrared radiation and convert it to heat. The thermopile gets hotter as it absorbs more and more infrared energy. The excess heat is converted into electricity, which is transmitted to a detector which determines the temperature of the object.
