Infrared Temperature Sensor

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The Infrared Radiometer measures remote surface temperatures to within 0.2 C.

Measurement of surface temperature is a crucial component of energy transfer. Accurate measurement of the leaf-to-air temperature gradient is essential to the determination of transpiration rate and stomatal conductance in both single leaves and plant canopies.

This gradient is often less than 1 C, which means that leaf temperature should be measured to within 0.2 C. To achieve this accuracy, the Apogee Instruments Infrared Radiometers correct for changes in the sensor body temperature with a subroutine designed for Campbell Scientific dataloggers.

The 8-14 µm window of the SI-111 and SI-121 corresponds to the atmospheric window in order to minimise the effects of water bands below 8 µm and above 14 µm.

Select either a standard (SI-111) or narrow (SI-121) field of view. These offer 22˚ and 18˚ half angles, respectively.

Ordering Information:
Model SI-111 Half-angle = 22.0˚
Model SI-112 Half-angle = 18.0˚
