Test & Measurement
Telatemp hand-held IR thermometer
By Anthony Capkun
Telatemp has developed a pistol-grip IR thermometer with a built-in laser pointer for accurate aiming. Applications include plant maintenance of rotary equipment, testing for hot spots on electrical panels, and more. A large backlit LCD display makes measurement in dark or low-light conditions simple. Basic accuracy is ±2ÂºF over a range of 0° to 600°F (the units can switch between metric and imperial). The fixed emissivity (0.95) covers 90% of surface temperature measurement applications, and audible and visible over-range indicators are standard.
