Infrared (IR) thermometers are used to measure temperatures of surfaces without making contact. Many IR thermometers are equipped with a laser sight that allows the user to “point and shoot” to get readings from safe distances. These instruments are often used when personnel need to spot-measure temperatures of piping, machinery, bearings, furnaces, engines, or chemical reactors.
As versatile as infrared (IR) thermometers are, calibrating them can be a challenge. In order to calibrate them, you need to use a special apparatus in a controlled environment as well as a black body source and an accurate way of measuring the reference temperature of the black body source.
At PCS, we meet the challenges of IR thermometer calibration. We have your needs covered and our IR thermometer calibration services are highly valued by our customers. Benefit from our standard 48-hour turnaround times — the fastest turnaround time in the calibration industry.
Our testing apparatus consists of a controlled calibration environment involving a black body heat source with a 95% emissivity and a small aperture. We have also placed a reference PRT thermometer inside the black body cavity, which allows us to accurately measure the temperature of the heat source.
To calibrate an IR thermometer, we point the infrared thermometer at the aperture and adjust the black body temperature. By comparing the reading of the reference PRT thermometer with the reading of the IR thermometer over the IR thermometer’s operational range, we can determine error and calibrate as necessary. Our IR thermometer calibration process produces accurate results for your benefit.
While we serve customers nationwide through our fast turnaround laboratory located in Tennessee, we can perform IR thermometer calibration services on-site as well! Whether you have multiple tools at your shop, or have equipment that cannot be removed from your facility, our mobile lab brings the infrared thermometer calibration services to you! We offer convenient on-site calibration services to many locations in Tennessee, Virginia, Alabama, and Kentucky. Don’t risk using outdated or misaligned equipment! If within our region of mobile service, we can provide on-site calibration service. Major cities frequently visited for calibration services include:

All calibrations are NIST, (National Institute of Standard and Technology) traceable and include “long form” calibration certificates with as-found/as-left data. ISO/IEC-17025 accredited calibration is available upon request. We also offer a web based calibration interface, “e-certificates” that gives you access to electronic copies of your calibration certificates which can be viewed and printed at your convenience. Standard turnaround time is 48 hours.
When it comes to providing IR thermometer calibration services, we do whatever we can to provide our customers with the best value in the calibration industry. Our standard pricing is as follows:
3 Point ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Calibration: $125
Each additional Point: add $25
