Pyrometer definition and meaning
A pyrometer is a device that measures the temperature of an object. It is commonly used in tires to measure the temperature of the tread and sidewall. The data from a pyrometer can be used to monitor tire wear, identify tire problems, and adjust tire pressure. There are several different types of pyrometers, but they all work by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by an object and converting it into a measure of temperature. For example, some pyrometers use a photodiode to detect the infrared radiation, while others use a more sophisticated detector such as a bolometer.
