Digitron launches trio of infrared ‘aim, shoot’ thermometers

18 November 2011

Digitron Instrumentation has launched three new handheld infrared thermometers which provide fast, easy and safe ways to measure surface temperatures

The IR Gun-380, IR Gun-1100 and IR Pebble are the latest devices from the Torquay-based company which is a supplier of digital instrumentation for temperature and pressure measurement to the manufacturing and catering industries.

The entry-level thermometers, which use convenient ‘aim and shoot’ technology to instantly check surface temperatures, have been designed for use in various sectors, including food production, catering, industrial facilities and laboratories.

Andy Macpherson, general manager for Digitron, said: “Our trio of new infrared thermometers are designed to provide a fast and cost effective way of taking surface temperature readings with the minimum of fuss.

“The thermometers safely measure hot food surfaces, eliminating the need to touch food and reducing the risk of cross contamination. They can also be used to measure hazardous or hard-to-reach surfaces without damaging the object and with minimum risk to the user.”

The IR Gun-380, which can measure temperatures from -50°C to 380°C/-58°F to 716°F, is compact and can scan current surface temperature in less than a second.

The device also boasts a large, easy to read display and unlike traditional contact temperature measuring where readings can take a few minutes it can provide two readings per second.

The IR Gun-1100 is similar in construction to the IR Gun 380, however has a much wider temperature measurement specification from -50°C to 1100°C/-58°F to 2012°F. In addition to this, the product features adjustable emissivity which supports a broader range of targets, including heat producing machinery and frozen products with different surfaces which in turn improves the overall accuracy of the product.

Similarly, the IR Pebble makes taking surface temperatures affordable and portable. The device is a pocket-sized version of the IR Gun-380 and has a smaller temperature range.

The device, which fits neatly into the palm of your hand, includes features such as a ‘hold mode’ for freezing and recording the temperature and a large LCD screen for easy to read measurements. Additional features include an auto switch off which saves battery life and it also comes complete with a convenient neck lanyard for safe transportation and use.

Digitron is part of Elektron Technology plc and continues to invest in developing new handheld and bespoke temperature monitoring devices which can now be purchased directly online for the first time.
