Infrared thermometers are temperature sensing devices that use electromagnetic radiation to make non-contact surface temperature readings. Temperature is often the first indication of potential problems in electrical and mechanical applications. With handheld, non-contact IR thermometers, you can instantly measure equipment temperatures in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. With early detection of abnormal temperatures comes early correction of problems.
They are especially useful for applications in which quick spot temperature readings are desired or where conventional temperature sensors cannot be easily used.
  • Optical resolution or distance-to-spot
  • Spectral range
  • Laser sighting
  • Wide temperature ranges to choose from
  • Emissivity
  • Multiple laser point options


Infrared thermometers use a lens to focus infrared energy emitted from an object onto a detector called a thermopile. The detector then converts that energy into an electrical signal which, after compensating for the ambient temperature, is displayed in units of temperature. Filtering and signal processing amplifies and stabilizes the signal for more accurate and linear readings.
