Infrared hand-held thermometers enable temperature measurement from a distance, without contact with the object being measured. They are particularly suited to those applications where thermocouples and resistance thermometers cannot be used.
In particular, their simple operation makes infrared handheld thermometers the safest measuring equipment for measuring hot, difficult-to-reach or mobile objects, and thus avoiding damage or contamination.
Infrared hand-held thermometers are appreciated by experienced users in a wide range of industrial sectors, from the service and maintenance of machinery and plant to foodstuff monitoring, as they rapidly, safely and precisely measure surface temperatures.
In processes where temperature plays an important role, infrared hand-held thermometers have become indispensable test and measurement equipment in the last few years. Wherever temperature has a significant influence on process safety and product quality, an infrared hand-held thermometer should be close at hand.
Typical application examples of non-contact, high-speed measurement of surface temperatures with infrared handheld thermometers include measurements on:
- Parts which are hard to access
- Rotating parts
- Live electrical conductors
- Dangerously hot objects
- Low-mass parts
- Aggressive materials
