What is the working principle of IR thermometers?
Infrared light works like visible light–it can be focused, reflected, or absorbed. Infrared thermometers usually use a lens to focus infrared light from one object onto a detector called a thermopile. The thermopile absorbs the infrared radiation and turns it into heat.
The more infrared energy, the hotter the thermopile gets. This heat is turned into electricity. The electricity is sent to a detector, which uses it to determine the temperature of whatever the thermometer is pointed at. The more electricity, the hotter the object is.
IR Thermometers can only measure surface temperatures. If someone says their IRT measures Air temperature, well they’re lying.
