General Tools & Instruments: IR Thermometer/Scanner

The Energy Audit IR thermometer/scanner with Star Burst laser targeting (IRTC50) allows the user to designate a set point and determine whether subsequent readings are within or outside selectable ranges from that set point. The Star Burst laser targeting system lets the user easily determine the area being measured. The device can be used for conducting energy audits; it can perform a progressive scan over a predetermined area and check for temperature differentials. It also has a wide variety of applications for HVACR technicians, building inspectors, electricians, plumbers, and others. With the gun-style thermometer/scanner, a set point reference temperature is first acquired and stored. Then the user selects one of three reference ranges (±1°, 5°, or 10°F; 0.5°, 3°, or 5.5°C). As subsequent readings are taken, tricolor light and buzzer alarms indicate if those readings are within, above, or below the selected range. The instrument has a measurement range of -40° to 428°F (-40° to 220°C) with an accuracy of ±4°F/C, or 2 percent of reading. The unit has a fast response time of 0.5 seconds and repeatability of ±1.5°F (1°C). It has a distance-to-spot ratio of 8:1.
