Ideal Industries' Infrared Non-Contact Thermometer offers point-and-shoot temperature measuring
Ideal Industries introduces its Infrared (IR) Non-Contact Thermometer. Leveraging IR heat-sensing technology, the thermometer is designed to measure surface temperatures of live circuits, difficult-to-reach objects or moving parts from a distance to create a safer work environment.
Along with electrical troubleshooting and preventive maintenance applications, the thermometer is also designed for the HVAC, health and safety, food preparation, and process control fields. A built-in socket supports Type K thermocouple probes, allowing obstructed areas to be reached.
In addition to its 12:1 distance-to-spot ratio, this point-and-shoot-style thermometer features a temperature range of -76° F to 932° F (-60° C to 500° C) and a built-in laser pointer that identifies the center of the measurement area. Adjustable emissivity enhances the accuracy of its readings on reflective or non-reflective surfaces. Maximum, minimum, average and differential temperature readings are displayed on its backlit LCD. Plus, an operator can program high and low temperature points with audible alarm warnings that are activated when the temperature exceeds an established point.
