Re: Non-contact infrared thermometer for hobbiest
Nice find, but a small note. A thermopile is not pyroelectric. The
latter describes a sensor than uses the principles of pyroelectricity to
detect *changes* in heat. Thermopile elements can sense infrared energy
I got a thermopile element out of a $30 handheld infrared thermometer.
Waiting for time to hack it...
Hadn't realized Gerry worked up this sensor. Looks like he's been busy
