A model of the errors of temperature measurement with multiband systems was developed. Calculations of these errors for some measurement conditions and systems were carried out. It was shown that multiband systems are capable of producing accurate results of noncontact temperature measurement only in a limited number of applications and that to have small internal errors, they must be designed and built with much greater care than in the case of typical single-band systems.
