This part of IEC 62492, which is a Technical Specification, applies to radiation thermometry and addresses all technical data specified in IEC/TS 62492-1. It defines standard test methods which can be used by the end user of radiation thermometers to determine or confirm the fundamental metrological data of radiation thermometers with one wavelength range and one measurement field.
The purpose of this specification is to facilitate comparability and testability. Therefore, unambiguous test methods are stipulated for determining technical data, under standardised measuring conditions that can be performed by a sufficiently skilled end user to serve as standard performance criteria for instrument evaluation or selection.
It is not compulsory for manufacturers and sellers of radiation thermometers to include all technical data given in this document in the data sheets for a specific type of radiation thermometer. Only the relevant data should be stated and should comply with this specification and IEC/TS 62492-1.
NOTE Infrared ear thermometers are excluded from this Technical Specification.
