Product Description

Portable IR thermometers have become indispensable tools for automotive troubleshooting and diagnostics. Quick non-contact temperature measurements make it easy to spot cooling system faults, identify engine misfires, check for proper A/C performance, verify catalytic converter operation and much more. The laser point sighting on the MT6 unit helps to direct measurements toward the target and the large backlit display shows both the current and maximum readings simultaneously. With a protective boot for added durability, award winning ergonomic design and Raytek quality and accuracy, the MT6 model is the perfect introduction to infrared temperature measurements in automotive diagnostics. Accuracy is +/-1 degree C (2 degrees F) from 10 degrees C to 30 degrees C (50 degrees F to 86 degrees F), +/- 1.5% of reading or +/- 1.5 degrees C (3 degrees F) whichever is greater over the balance of the range. Emissivity: preset at 0.95. Response time: <500msec. Distance to spot ratio: 10:1 calculated at 80% energy. Runs on a 9V Alkeline battery (included). Includes protective boot and storage pouch. (assumes standard and stable measurement conditions)

Great value, very accurate and well made.
Richard M. Needleman
The ability to take a temperature reading instantly of pretty much anything without touching it is awesome.
L. Harris
I would purchase more of this brand and model based on the quality of the units we have already received.

The ability to take a temperature reading instantly of pretty much anything without touching it is awesome. Some people will purchase this for professional use, but I got it because I believe knowledge is power, and because I just like to know stuff. ;-) All too often we make decisions based on assumptions that aren't valid, and I'd rather know the facts. For example, I installed extra insulation (R-19 fiberglass bats) over parts of my attic and wondered how much difference it really made. It took me about a minute to take several temperature readings by pointing my MT6 at different locations on my ceiling, and it looks like the areas with extra insulation were about 2F cooler today (92 outside) than those without. No guessing, no assumptions, no hoping I'll be able to detect a difference in my power bill. Very cool.

It seemed to work on everything I tried, including the water in my pool (the laser looked especially cool shining underwater ;-). Check the temperature of your roof, food, drinks, your freezer. Compare the effect of paint color on the exterior temperature of your house. I've had it less than a day and I've already found uses for it I didn't anticipate before I got it.

This device appears to be the same thing as the Fluke 62 Mini Infrared Thermometer with the exception of color and this one selling for a lot less. Both have the following accuracy:

10C to 30C (50 F to 86 F): 1C (2F)

Outside 10 C to 30 C (50F to 86F): 1.5C (3F) or 1.5% of reading, whichever is greater.

The thermometer does not work on shiny surfaces as, for example, pots and baking trays and the manufacturer does not disclose that in the description. Point it at a pot with boiling water and you will get readings of 85, 125, 90, 110, all within a few seconds. If you call the manufacturer, they will explain that the reason is that the emissivity of the surface is fixed at 0.95. So forget about measuring the temperature of your pressure cooker, espresso machine, etc. It is good for relatively matte surfaces.

I bought this as a kitchen thermometer. I am on a quest to make perfect pancakes and could never keep my griddle at the perfect pancake temperature (360 F). I made the best batch of pancakes in my life after using this thermometer to adjust the surface temperature just so. And this morning, I made the best omelet I've ever cooked (at 325 F).

I chose this model as it claims to have better accuracy than comparably priced competitors (1.5%, or 1.5C (3F) whichever is greater). This might not be good enough for medical applications, but for cooking, car repair, or home heating uses it's pretty good. Also, it claims a narrower beam than other products with a 10:1 distance to radius ratio, allowing more accurate scans at a distance. And, supposedly, one standard 9V battery will last 12 hours of use, which given that a single scan is typically 5 seconds might as well be for a lifetime.

I've been quite happy with this product. I like the scan feature, where you can scan over an area keeping track of the hottest temperature. It's also nice that the optics are well shielded deep inside the device, making it unlikely I'll get fingerprints on them, and allowing me to stuff it in my pocket if needed. And, I like the laser guide, which my son uses to play Buzz Lightyear (I'm very careful to not let him point it at his or my eyes).

I'm so happy with this product, I'm thinking of giving them out as Christmas gifts this year.

Good value for the price. I purchased two Raytek MT6 for an industrial setting in December 2010. The units we received came with the storage bag and a 9v battery included. We changed the batteries as a manner of company reliability policy- the battery included with each unit provided did work. Units have serial numbers inside the battery area which is helpful for tracking inventory and reliability for quality system requirements. One item to note is to follow the instructions for the laser pointer as the gun does not read at the laser dot itself but at a specified area below the laser dot depending on distance from surface.

One of the two units did have a minor issue with the laser being slightly off center but I removed the top rubber-like surround to the temperature reading head, opened the case, repositioned the laser to point toward the correct orientation, used hot glue to lock the laser base down, closed the case back up, and the laser pointed to the correct point. Since it was an easily correctable issue, I still gave five stars due to the technical value versus cost. Other purchasers may not have the mechanical competence to fix the same type of issue.

As mentioned in other reviews, the Raytek MT6 unit appears to be the same as the Fluke 62 Mini Infrared Thermometer except the Fluke color is yellow instead of Raytek black. We have both models and brands of units in our factory. The Raytek and Fluke instruction sheets are virtually the same. The Raytek instructions are targeted more towards the home or mechanic user with examples of looking at engine temperatures or heat / air conditioning vents versus the Fluke instructions showing more industrial applications being looked at for temperatures.
