By Renée Francoeur
July 27, 2016 – Ridgid says it has introduced an enhanced non-contact infrared thermometer featuring “more precise” measurements and a higher temperature range.
The micro IR-200 can now take measurements from further away (30:1 distance-to-spot ratio compared to 20:1, according to Ridgid); higher temperature measurement (-58 to 2192 degrees Fahrenheit compared to -58 to 1472); and has an adjustable emissivity setting.
Additional features of the battery-operated IR-200 include audible and visual high and low alarms to alert users of temperatures outside of ranges set, a bright backlit display and tripod mount capabilities.
