Wireless Infra-Red Sensor

Bluetooth | USB | Huge Battery Life | Independent Logging

Wireless Infra-Red Sensor

Leslie’s cube, insulation, heat along a metal rod, Hershel’s discovery, Stefan-Boltzmann law, residual heat, efficiency of filament lamps, warm and cold-blooded animals, human body heat-loss and disaster victims are just some of the investigations which can be done with this sensor.

Being wireless allows pupils to investigate the IR coming from surfaces inside and out e.g. when looking at heat-loss from buildings and comparing results from their own insulation experiments. It also allows a demonstration such as Leslie’s cube to be set up anywhere in the laboratory.

Reliable and durable, designed for the classroom

All our sensors come with 5 years warranty and lifetime support, we ensure your investment gives you complete peace of mind.

Measuring Infrared

Measurements can be recorded at three levels using either a Radiance (the intensity of the emitted thermal energy of the source) or Irradiance (the intensity of the incident thermal radiation on the Sensor) range.  It has a removable silica glass filter that will block mid and far infrared making the sensor selective for low and high temperature sources.

All warm objects emit infrared radiation, so this sensor can be used to detect the location of a warm item or living organism. When set to its most sensitive ranges it can detect very low IR emissions such as the heat trail left on the bench after you move your hand away.

Practical Teaching

The Wireless Infrared Sensor can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • Herschel’s discovery of infrared experiment
  • Study inverse square to verify that heat radiation from source is inversely proportional to the square of its distance
  • Infrared emission from a Leslie’s cube
  • Efficiency of insulation such as clothing or building materials
  • Infrared in the environment
  • Explaining infrared thermography
  • Black body studies (radiance range)
  • Investigating Stefan-Boltzmann’s radiation law using a tungsten filament lamp
  • Modelling infrared discovery of people in disaster zones
  • Heat distribution along a heated metal rod
  • Illustration of non-contact thermometry
