Heat transfer always occurs in human life and can be perceived its benefits and losses. The heat transfer is divided into three according to transfers media, namely conduction, convection, and radiation. One example of cases where there are three processes of heat transfer is when there is a fire in a room. During a fire, the heat from the fire will travel into the surrounding environment and affect the objects around it with radiation, conduction, and convection. Heat that travels through radiation certainly does not require a medium of delivery because the heat is traveled in the form of electromagnetic waves and can travel to a very long distance. Distance, view factor, and placement of an object will affect the amount of radiation to be received from the heat of fire. Therefore, to examine the effect of distance, the viewing factor and the placement of objects against radiation, writer designs a multi-axis heat flux sensor. Instrument with multi-axis heat flux sensors or by the name of a Multi-Axis Radiometer will be designed which will then be tested to determine the results of the design. Instrument called Multi-Axis because the workbench of the instrument can be rotated 90°. Testing of the apparatus will include the heating temperature, the distance of the sensor to the heater, the sensor offset to the heater, the viewing angle of the sensor to the heater, and the orientation of the workbench. The results of testing distance and offset are validated by the theoretical calculations.
