Reliability Direct offers a wide selection of Professional Infrared Thermometers from several manufactures including, Ecom, Extech, Raytek, RDI, SKF and TPI. They are also sometimes called IR Thermometers, Infrared Temperature Guns or Laser Thermometers as many use a laser for targeting. Infrared Thermometers are portable battery powered hand held instruments that provide a non-contact temperature measurement by measuring the infrared energy emitted by the target. The distance to spot ratio (D:S) determines the target size measured as a ratio to the distance the device is held from the target. If a Infrared thermometer has a D:S of 12:1 then at 12" measuring distance the measurement will be the average of a spot 1" in diameter.
