Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 Corona virus pandemic one of the more common application questions we receive is “Can an infrared temperature sensor be used for body temperature measurement?” This blog discusses some of the considerations infrared temperature sensors normally designed for industrial and laboratory use for this body temperature measurement.
For any application that requires precise temperature measurement over an extended period of time (i.e. months or years), calibration is criticall...
This blog includes the formulas to convert back and forth between relative humidity to dew point temperature. It also includes an Excecl spreadsheet to perform the calculation.
This blog explains how to convert the voltage output from a thermocouple temperature sensor to temperature reading. It includes an Excel spreadsheet which performs all of the calculations.
Once used for only the most demanding applications, the advancement in technology and decrease in price has made Infrared temperature sensors a commonly used temperature measurement sensor. This article describes their theory of operation, common applications and the different types of infrared temperature sensors.
In this post we will provide a a basic understanding thermocouples including theory of operation, the different types and styles of thermocouples and which thermocouple configurations are best suited for different application environments.
This article discusses instrumentation to measure dew point and humidity in an industrial environment. The two most common types of instruments, capacitance based sensors and chilled mirror hygrometers are covered in detail. The benefits and disadvantages of each type of instrument is discussed well as applications for which they are best suited.
