Non-contact thermometers


I’m not really sure what I would need one of these for, but apart from being a bit of fun, they could come in very useful for measuring the temperature of Solar Panels on a hot day, as the hotter a panel becomes, the less efficient it becomes. Continue reading Non-contact thermometers

  • Signal generator 5 MHZ, 5Vp-p (40 MHz, 10Vp-p), can make one using Arduino, but a bench boxed model would be nice
  • Frequency Counter – I have one in my DMM, so not absolutely necessary, but a nice to have.
