Infrared thermometers are everything you'd expect from the experts in measuring temperature in transformers, motors, pumps, panels, breakers, compressors, duct, steam lines, valves, and vents in hard to reach areas for repair and maintenance.
If you've ever used an infrared thermometer, then you may have been fooled regarding the temperature reading. That's because IR thermometers project a measurement cone at a surface and take the average temperature of the cone at the target. Although most IR thermometers have a laser pointer, a laser is a line, not a cone, and you may think that you're getting temperature at the laser point only. It uses two rotating laser pointers that show you the size of the measurement area. It covers the temperature range from -22 to 1202°F (-30 to 650°C) with a response time less than 300 ms. The meters screen is located in a position and with a viewing angle (15°) that, in many cases, lets you see the display without having to move the thermometer from the measuring point. For most measurements, you simply pull the trigger once you've identified the measurement point.
Temperature is often the first indication of potential problems in electrical and mechanical applications. But how can you easily determine if an electrical panel has a hot spot, a motor is overheating or an HVAC/R system is inefficient? The answer is with an infrared (IR) thermometer. With handheld, non-contact IR thermometers, you can instantly measure equipment temperatures in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. And with early detection of abnormal temperatures comes early correction of problems.
