Wintronics KT19.85 Radiation Pyrometer
Measurements Provided: Radiometric surface temperature
Typical Sampling Rates: 5 Hz
- Overall estimate of uncertainty: 0.5K plus 0.7% of difference between scene temperature and sensor housing temperature
- Sensor housing is temperature controlled at 20 deg C
- Other measurement characteristics (comments on signal/noise, bias limits, etc):
- Sample Rate = 5 Hz, Spectral Range = 9.6-11.5 microns, Field of View = 2 degrees
History of Significant Changes: The sensor housings are heated on both the C130 and GV so as to maintain a stable temperature at high altitude (cold ambient temperature). Nominal set point for the heating unit is 20 degrees C.
