The Supco PIT1 pocket infrared thermometer is for measuring temperature in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning applications, including refrigeration and heating systems, supply and return registers, circuit breaker panels, motors and bearings, transformers, and ducts. It measures temperature from -33 to 220 degrees C (-27 to 428 degrees F) with an accuracy of + or - 2 degrees C (4 degrees F). The infrared sensor measures temperature from a distance for applications involving hard-to-reach, moving, hot, or electrified equipment. The thermometer has a 1:1 distance-to-spot ratio, which means the measurement field measures approximately 1 foot in diameter when the target is 1 foot away. It also has an adjustable emissivity setting to help improve measurement accuracy on a range of surface types. The LCD screen displays current temperature and highest or lowest temperature reading for the session. The thermometer can fit in a shirt pocket for hands-free carrying. It operates on one CR2032 battery (included) and has an automatic shut-off feature to conserve battery life.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Digital infrared thermometers measure the temperature of surfaces from a distance. They may measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or both. Infrared (IR) thermometers work by focusing the infrared radiation emitted by a surface onto a detector called a thermopile. The thermopile turns the heat into electricity, which is measured and converted to a temperature reading. The reading is then displayed on an LCD display. IR thermometers are used to measure temperature when an object is fragile, as in ear thermometers, or dangerous to be near, as in the case of industrial equipment.
Supco manufactures test instruments and replacement parts for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems. The company, founded in 1945, is headquartered in Allenwood, NJ.
