Temperature is one of the most commonly measured andcontrolled parameters in industry. Proper monitoring andcontrol of process temperature improves product quality,reduces product scrap, and improves overall productyield and process speed. Every industry in today’scompetitive marketplace is putting in place programs andsystems to lower production costs, through automatedproduction and quality control systems. To measuretemperature of dynamic object most of the industries areusing telemetry technique for temperature measurement.This technique has certain limitations like; limited rangeof temperature, surface of dynamic objects, battery lifeand safety factor. In this paper an attempt is made toovercome this limitations using infrared thermometry.This system is tested on Zamak Mould Machine &Volkswagen Welding Machine in Tata Ficosa Company,Pune. It is nondestructive
measurement method so nodamage to
product and no breakage due to contact withmoving objects.

In industry there are many cases when we want tomeasure the various parameters of dynamic objects liketemperature, vibration etc.; it is the need in industry asit affects life, reliability of machine. Many a time’ssafety factor is also involved. Temperaturemeasurement is required for many applications such asengine shaft, machine shafts, pumps, generator etc. Itimproves product quality, reduces product scrap, andimproves overall product yield and process speed.Most of the industries are using telemetry technique for temperature measurement. In this technique miniature battery with sensor and RF transmitter is situated ondynamic object & it transmits temperature data tostationary receiver located nearby where it is measured& indicated. This has certain limitations given as below.
Surface of dynamic object may not besuitable. For example oil leakage on thesurface i.e. high cleaning and maintenancerequired.
Range of temperature.
Battery life.An attempt is made to overcome these difficulties byusing infrared temperature system. This technique hasno battery, no contact to surface of the dynamic object. Non-contact infrared temperature systems provideaccurate reliable and cost effective temperaturemeasurements at process critical control points. Thistechnique comes under wireless infrared telemetry.This measuring technique uses the properties of infra-red (IR) light waves to determine a target’stemperature. By employing an infrared detector, thesensor detects the amount of thermal energy emittedfrom a target as IR light.
There is known relationship between the amount of infrared relation emitted
by anobject and the object surface temperature.
The Block diagram of the system is given in fig.-1.Dynamic object may be linear or rotary moving object,such as products on conveyor belts of which
