Extech Instruments, a major supplier of test and measurement equipment for the industrial marketplace, announces its new 42515 Wide Range InfraRed Thermometer with Type K input. Storing up to 20 readings and capable of measuring both non-contact and contact temperature, the Wide-Range IR Thermometer is ideal for various industrial applications including automotive/transportation, HVAC/R, inks/laminates/coatings, plant maintenance and repair, electrical contracting and food services. Extech’s 42515 IR Thermometer delivers a wide temperature range for InfraRed measurements from -58 to 1472°F (-50 to 800°C) as well as the Type K thermocouple measurements from -58 to 2498°F (-50 to 1370°C). Emissivity is manually adjustable from 0.1 to 1.00 and features automatic adjustment for temperatures of 212°F or higher. The 42515 also features a large, bright, backlit LCD display for easy-to-read measurements and programming parameters, such as highest, lowest, average and MAX minus MIN values. Also included is an adjustable high/low alarm to alert the user visually and audibly when temperature exceeds programmed limits. The Wide-Range IR Thermometer is perfectly suited for measuring the surface temperature of objects that are difficult to reach or unsafe to touch, and is thus an ideal solution for scanning for hot spots on motors, electrical panels, circuits and other equipment. Other advantages of the Wide Range IR Thermometer include a laser pointer for better aim and accuracy, auto-hold that activates when the measurement trigger is released, and switches built into the handle that allow for easy °C/°F display selection, auto power off and alarm on/off control. Extech’s 42515 IR Thermometer comes complete with a carrying case, type K thermocouple sensor (-4 to 482°F/-20 to 250°C) and 9V battery.
