The TempTestr® IR is said to be a lightweight, easy-to-use infrared thermometer that requires users to just point at a surface and push a single button, says the company. The unit returns the temperature in ?F or ?C on the LCD screen. A hold feature displays the temperature for 7 sec to allow time for logging, the company says. Temperature range is from 0? to 500?F (-18? to 260?C) with accuracy and repeatability of ±2%. A laser-sighting model emits a bright red laser spot for easy verification of the measurement location, says the manufacturer.
