Annex A
Evaluation on calibration uncertainty of infrared thermometer
The infrared thermometer for measuring the temperature of the human body is
calibrated by the standard instrument--the black body radiation source in its
calibration mode.
A.1 Black body radiation source
The blackbody radiation source used to calibrate the infrared thermometer is
composed of an isothermal cavity with a certain opening, a known wall
temperature, and a high emissivity of the inner surface layer. The radiation
characteristics of the blackbody cavity depend on the sealing of the cavity, the
uniformity of the cavity wall temperature and the radiation characteristics of the
inner surface material.
Due to the large field of view of some infrared thermometer probes (for example,
the field of view of some infrared ear thermometer probes is close to the
hemisphere), the blackbody cavity shall ensure that the temperature
unevenness and effective emissivity characteristics of the infrared thermometer
meet the calibration requirements in the field of view of the infrared thermometer.
Common blackbody cavities with uniform temperature are:
(1) Thin-walled cavity that is placed in a constant-temperature water bath
with uniform temperature;
(2) Heat pipe cavity;
(3) Other cavities with good heat design.
Because of the good spatial uniformity of the temperature of the water tank and
convenient measurement, the water tank scheme is often used in the blackbody
radiation source at normal temperature. When the effective emissivity of the
blackbody cavity is close to 1, the blackbody radiation temperature can use a
platinum resistance thermometer or a mercury thermometer to measure the
temperature of the cavity wall or the temperature of the area close to the cavity
wall temperature.
Platinum resistance can use standard platinum resistance thermometer or other
precision platinum resistance with measurement uncertainty to meet
measurement needs.
The radiation temperature of the blackbody radiation source shall be traced to
the ITS-1990 temperature reference.
○2 Resolution.
For the specific uncertainty assessment steps, refer to national metrology
technical specification JJF 1059-1999 “Evaluation and Expression of
Uncertainty in Measurement”.
A.3 Examples of evaluation on uncertainty of infrared ear thermometer
According to this Specification, use blackbody radiation source of which the
effective emissivity is greater than 0.999 to calibrate the infrared ear
thermometer of which the display resolution is 0.1°C at 37°C. The ambient
temperature is 22°C. The temperature-controlled temperature measurement
value of the blackbody radiation source is directly read from the temperature
A.3.1 Evaluation on standard uncertainty
a) Calibration uncertainty of black body radiation source, u1
Taken from the blackbody radiation source calibration certificate. The
expanded uncertainty U = 0.04°C, k = 2. u1 = 0.02°C.
b) Uncertainty introduced by long-term instability of radiant temperature
during calibration period, u2
The absolute difference in radiation temperature in the last two calibration
certificates of the blackbody radiation source is 0.02°C. Evaluate
according to uniform distribution, .
c) Influence of environmental temperature difference on the recurring
temperature control temperature, u3
The ambient temperature for blackbody radiation source calibration is
20°C. The ambient temperature for infrared thermometer calibration is
22°C. Both the infrared thermometer calibration and the blackbody
radiation source calibration experiment use the temperature
measurement value of the blackbody radiation source temperature
controller to determine the wall temperature of the recurring cavity. The
temperature measurement indication value of the temperature controller
is not affected by the change of the ambient temperature not exceeding
0.03°C/10°C. Therefore, when the ambient temperature difference is 2°C,
the temperature measurement value of the thermostat shall not change
more than 0.006°C. Evaluate according to uniform distribution,
