Abstract

The primary goal of this project was to design and construct a spot pyrometer for Analog Devices, Inc. We examined commercially available remote temperature sensors to determine their operating characteristics and we evaluated individual IR sensors. We designed, constructed, and calibrated our own spot pyrometer using a thermopile sensor, analog to digital converter, and a USB interface, meeting our specifications.
