Hand-held thermometer measures up to 1800degC

Hand-held thermometer measures up to 1800degC The new Convir Thermosight HT handheld infrared thermometer from Calex Electronics offers unprecedented levels of performance for high temperature applications, including those involving metals, concrete, clay and bricks. With a temperature range from 250degC to 1800degC and an accuracy of 0.75precent, the Thermosight HT is ideal for measuring the hottest targets when accuracy is crucial. One of the most important features of the new Thermosight HT is the spectral range at which it operates: 1.45 to 1.7um. These are ideal wavelengths to use for measuring high temperatures as they correspond to the peak energy emission for these temperatures, enabling the HT to provide its very high accuracy. This short wavelength response is also ideal for measuring metals, because at shorter wavelengths their emissivity values increase, helping to reduce the errors to which other infrared units can be prone. The performance levels are very high on all fronts for the new HT model. The response time is a lightning quick 20ms, allowing even the fastest of processes to be measured. The field of view focuses down to a spot size of just 4mm at a distance of 800mm, and has a distance to spot size ratio of 50:1 in the far field, which enables small targets to be measured from a safe distance. This is combined with concentric laser sighting, so users always know exactly where they are aiming.
