High-temperature standard platinum resistance thermometers (HTSPRTs) are used to interpolate the international temperature scale of 1990 (ITS-90), especially for temperatures between the aluminum and the silver points. For this, long-term stability of the HTSPRT is essential. CHINO R800-3L type SPRT, which has a nominal resistance at the triple point of water (TPW) around 0.25 Ω , is the one developed earlier for the interpolation of the ITS-90 at this temperature range. Further development to this previous model has been carried out for the purpose of improving the thermal stability. The improvement was focused on reducing the effect coming from the difference in thermal expansion between platinum wire and the quartz frame on which the platinum wire is installed. New HTSPRTs were made by CHINO Corporation. Some series of tests were carried out at CHINO and at NMIJ. Initial tests after the HTSPRT fabrication were done at CHINO, where thermal cycles between 500∘C and 980∘C were applied to the HTSPRTs to see change in the resistances at the TPW (RTPW) and at the gallium point (RGa). Repeated resistance measurements at the silver point (RAg) were performed after completing the thermal cycling test. Before and after every measurement at silver point, RTPW was measured, while before and after every two silver point realization RGa were measured. After completing this test, the HTSPRTs were transported to NMIJ, where the same repeated measurements at the silver point were done at NMIJ. These were then repeated at CHINO and at NMIJ upon repeated transportation among the institutes, to evaluate some effect due to transportation. This paper reports the details of the above-mentioned tests, the results and the analysis. © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Objective: Infrared thermography systems have been used for fever screening at many airports since the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003. However, many of these systems are expensive and non-portable. Therefore, we developed a cost-effective and compact (2.9 × 5.8 × 2.0. cm) thermopile array for fever screening of patients with infectious diseases in the clinical setting. Methods: The array was created with small pixels (48 × 47 = 2256 pixels) fabricated on a silicon wafer using microelectromechanical systems technology. We tested this array on 155 febrile and afebrile patients (35.4. °C ≤ axillary temperature ≤ 39.3. °C) with seasonal influenza at the Japan Self-Defense Forces Central Hospital. Results: The maximum facial temperature, measured by the array at 0.3 m from the subject, exhibited a positive correlation with axillary temperature measured using a contact-type thermometer (r = 0.71, p < 0.01). The sensitivity and specificity of the thermopile array in identifying the febrile subjects were 80.5% and 93.3%, respectively, setting the threshold cut-off of maximum facial temperature at an appropriate value. Conclusions: Our cost-effective thermopile array appears promising for future close-range fever screening of patients with infectious diseases at primary care doctor clinics, health care centers, and quarantine stations in developing and developed countries. © 2014 The Authors.

To examine the reliability of thermocouple comparison in industry at high temperature, thermocouple comparison measurements were performed around 1324 °C in nine laboratories by using two Pt/Pd thermocouples and one type R thermocouple following calibration at Co-C eutectic point. It was found that the standard deviations of the emf values of the Pt/Pd-2 (one of the Pt/Pd thermocouples) and type R thermocouples among nine participating laboratories were 4.2 μV (0.2 °C) and 5.0 μV (0.4 °C), respectively. © 2011 SICE.

Recently, the eutectic points are being studied by many national institutes, and considered being useful for the calibration laboratories in industry to improve their uncertainty of thermocouple calibration at high temperature. To conduct a cooperative research for investigation on the reliability of thermocouple calibration in industry at high temperature, a working group has been established within the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). AIST and nine domestic laboratories participated to this working group. In this working group, thermocouple comparison measurements were performed at around 1300 °C in nine laboratories by using two Pt/Pd thermocouples and one type R thermocouple following calibration at Co-C eutectic point. It was found that the uncertainties of calibration at around 1300°C in industry would be improved by utilizing the calibration at Co-C eutectic point. © 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.

Two techniques to compensate for unknown distributed emissivity of the object for measuring surface temperature with a thermal imager are presented. For both techniques, the reflected image of an auxiliary source is superimposed on the thermal image of the object. To demonstrate both methods, a radiation thermometry system with a specially designed compact thermal imager has been developed. In this paper, the design, function, and performance of the system are presented.

This paper introduces a new low power wireless sensor network technology-Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). The BLE wireless communication is not only very low power consumption, but also it can be very easy to cooperate with smart terminators (smart phones and tablet PCs). In this paper, we estimate the power consumption of the BLE and report some BLE applications we are developing, including a wearable health thermometer and SMoB (Smart Manufacturing over BLE) technology for industrial 4.0. © 2015 The Society of Instrument and Control Engineers-SICE.
