Abstract

This invention adapts a variable emissivity radiometer for non-contact temperature measurement by adding a programmable feature where a microprocessor and EPROM are incorporated into a radiometer. This enables the emissivity of the component to be measured to be pre-programmed into the device. When the machine model number and part number is entered, the correct emissivity of that object is pre-selected so accurate measurements can be taken. Without this information entry, the unit will not measure temperature.
