scope:

1.1 This guide covers electronic instruments intended for measurement of temperature by detecting the intensity of thermal radiation exchanged between the subject of measurement and the sensor.

1.2 The devices covered by this guide are referred to as infrared thermometers in this document.

1.3 The infrared thermometers covered in this guide are instruments that are intended to measure temperatures below 1000°C, measure thermal radiation over a wide bandwidth in the infrared region, and are direct-reading in temperature.

1.4 This guide covers best practice in calibrating infrared thermometers. It addresses concerns that will help the user perform more accurate calibrations. It also provides a structure for calculation of uncertainties and reporting of calibration results to include uncertainty.

1.5 Details on the design and construction of infrared thermometers are not covered in this guide.

1.6 This guide does not cover infrared thermometry above 1000°C. It does not address the use of narrowband infrared thermometers or infrared thermometers that do not indicate temperature directly.

1.7 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.8 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
