The IRT0421 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer with Laser is designed to accurately measure temperature from a distance. Simply pull the trigger and aim the pistol grip thermometer at an object using the laser indicator and the unit will provide an accurate temperature measurement in less than a second. The IRT0421 has an advanced highly accurate infrared sensor with a Distance to Spot Ratio of 12 to 1. It uses two AAA batteries instead of the 9-volt battery commonly found in less capable units. With its low voltage application-specific integrated circuit, battery life is increased by up to 60%.

This infrared thermometer provides accurate readings over a broad range of temperatures, from -76 to 932 degrees Fahrenheit (-60 to 500 degrees Celsius). It displays both the current temperature and maximum temperature on the bright backlit LCD display. Advanced ergonomic design and rugged construction for industrial environments, the IRT0421 comes with a nylon holster for easy storage and transportation. This non-contact infrared thermometer has been designed for a broad range of uses including automotive diagnostics, HVAC service, electrical troubleshooting, cooking and food preparation, and hobbies.

Thermometer accuracy and emissivity Most people don’t seem to realize that the accuracy of this thermometer (all infrared temperature sensors) is very dependent on a property of every material called “emissivity”. In general, you will get a more accurate reading when the material has a high emissivity. Materials with low emissivity will reflect infrared light. If the material has a *very* low emissivity, such as with aluminum foil, then the device will be reading the temperature of the objects that are in the foil’s reflection – such as the kitchen, the oven interior surface, and even yourself. Luckily, most of the surfaces associated with foods being cooked have a high emissivity (water, flesh, oil, plant matter, etc), so the device will be fairly accurate with those. But there’s another thing to consider for cooking applications – this device still is only measuring the surface temperature. With foods like meats, you are still going to want to use a temperature probe so that you can measure the inside…

Good product –Great price I bought it because of the low price & was surprised to find it works just as well as more expensive Fluke thermometers I’ve used in the past. It works quickly, has a good distance to spot ratio and it’s priced just right. I’ve used it for everything from spot temp checks of computer equipment to checking my freezer & my ceiling insulation coverage. I would buy the same one again if it were lost or broken.
