Portable Infrared Thermometer
The new SKF TKTL 40 portable infrared thermometer enables safe and efficient measurement of machine temperature at a distance. The device is the only infrared thermometer in its class with the capability to take photos and videos showing the temperatures measured, allowing maintenance technicians and other operators to ascertain surface temperatures of equipment with greater ease and safety and enabling readings to be reviewed and shared. The detection of abnormal or high temperatures ultimately can help prevent problems and potential unplanned machinery downtime associated with potential lubricant or bearing damage. The SKF TKTL 40 is easy to use by simply aiming and pulling the trigger.
The thermometer performs with a distance-to-spot ratio of 50:1 for accurate surface temperature readings of very small areas, even at long measuring distances. Two laser points indicate the targeted area for a measurement and the temperature is then shown on the display. In addition – where direct contact temperature measurement may be applicable – the TKTL 40 is supplied with a K-type probe connection for use independently or in tandem with the infrared technique. Features of the unit include a backlit display, dual laser sighting, the K-type probe connection (for direct contact temperature measurement), and a bright LED illuminator for visibility even in poorly lit environments. A data logging function can be engaged to track temperature changes over time. Users can select high or low alarm levels with audible warning signals as safeguards. A user-selectable auto shut-off feature optimizes the rechargeable battery life to promote extended service intervals.
