The Thomas 4470 infrared thermometer with laser pointer is for measuring surface temperature in a range of commercial and industrial applications. The thermometer measures temperature from -60 to 500 degrees C (-76 to 932 degrees F), with an accuracy of + or - 2 degrees C or 2% of the reading. The infrared sensor measures surface temperature at a distance for applications involving hard-to-reach, moving, hot, or electrified equipment. It has an 11:1 distance-to-spot ratio, which means the measurement field measures approximately 11 feet in diameter when the target is 1 foot away. A built-in laser pointer helps improve aiming accuracy when taking infrared measurements. The operator can choose to display readings in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. The thermometer operates on one 9V battery (included). An individually numbered certificate indicating traceability to standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is included from an International Standards Organization (ISO) 17025 accredited calibration laboratory.
|Temperature measurement range||-60 to 500 degrees C (-76 to 932 degrees F)|
|Accuracy||+ or - 2 degree C or 2% of reading|
|Resolution||0.1 degree C from -9.99 to 199.9 degrees C, 1 degree C otherwise|

*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.
