Product Description

The Triplett PT12 ProTemp non-contact infrared thermometer measures surface temperature from a distance for safe measurement of heating and air conditioning, industrial, electrical, and food-service systems. The user can select whether the temperature is displayed in degrees Fahrenheit (F) or Celsius (C). The thermometer measures temperature from -26 to 572 degrees F and -32 to 300 degrees C, with an accuracy of + or - 5 degrees F from -26 to 32 degrees F (-32 to 0 degrees C), + or - 3 degrees F from 32 to 77 degrees F (0 to 25C), and + or - 4 degrees F or 2 percent (whichever is larger) from 77 to 572 degrees F (25 to 300 degrees C). The thermometer has a 12 to 1 distance-to-spot ratio with user-selectable laser sighting to pinpoint the measurement area. The LCD display is backlit for viewing under low-light conditions. A data-hold function maintains the temperature reading for 20 seconds after the trigger has been released. The PT12 is used to measure the temperature of hot and cold food products, heating and air conditioning units, electrical connections, engine parts, and other surfaces.

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.

Triplett manufactures test equipment for electricians, home security installers, and telecommunications technicians. The company, founded in 1904, is headquartered in Manchester, NH.

Excellent thermometer with backlight ! Has both F and C :) Strongly recommend. It has not let me down once. The laser pointer is very useful too.

Nice little gadget that just works. I got it mostly to take temperatures of foods, but it seems its has it uses in all other types of areas. I spent the day just aiming the thing at various surfaces. I used it to monitor the temperature of my laptop, to determine the where hotspots on it were and to also correlate when it got hot (like what applications spike it up). I also used it to sleuth around and figure out what devices I had on in my house and their location. Found a few things that were 'hidden' around the house that I forgot were plugged in.

I've been using this for a few weeks now and for surprising applications. Just playing with it, I've used this to measure the temperature of the air coming out of my vents to make sure the thermostat is doing its job, I've used it to test the amount of BTUs coming out of the newly replaced burners in my gas grill to make sure they're all giving off correct heat as well as the ceramic stones I've started using, I've used it in the kitchen to make sure I'm tempering correctly or even to check the actual heat levels on my cast iron skillet (which reminds me that I need to get another one of these, one for kitchen work and then keep the other one for around the house duties). Would recommend this one as the accuracy of the temp is pretty spot on compared to others I've used.

I have heard about how I needed one of these to find leaks in my home to insulate but just blew it off . They had them on sale the other day and knowing Triplett makes quality stuff I bit . It arrived with the battery in the grip you need to take off the protective coating and plug in . Then its just point and shoot after reading the instructions . Mine was about 13 degree's low in it's reading from true however it was consistant so that's not a huge problem just a minor mental adjustment . I came to the conclusion by shooting three thermometers and comparing to their readings .

Like others said I found all sorts of uses . Checking the fridge and freezer temps . Checking the thermopane vs single pane windows and those with blinds drawn . Closing the drapes kept the room 2 degrees warmer . We even checked wiring for heat and found a short - no kidding . You would be surprised the things you can apply checking surface temp to even a bad bearing in a motor . The local ghost hunters that wouldn't talk to me before want to borrow it too but alas not unless I can go with one day ! I won't tell them what I paid but I can tell you the regular price is less then this sells for elsewhere . The unit is small , fits in a tool box side drawer easily , has only three buttons one changes from F To C another turns on a back light and the third adjusts the lazor . The 12 to 1 ratio effects the area of measurement this checks a 1 1/2 foot circle at 20 feet . If you want to pin point you get closer . One downside is it has no on and off switch but the trigger and a auto off so make sure when stored nothing pushes against the trigger or better yet disconnect the battery .

I have no way of actually measuring how accurate this device is but it seems pretty close. Repeatability is great (ie, it's consistent). I wish it were a tighter measuring threshold (less than 12:1), but that's something you may be able to find in a different model.

I feel like a little kid playing with this. Found out where a lot of my cold air leaks were coming from - some I knew, some I didn't expect. My kitchen floor gets mighty cold from the unheated basement. A lot of sealing to do to winter-proof my little house.

I also use this in unexpected ways - checking the temp outside, of my car, to see how cold it is - works better than an outside thermometer. Even the temperature of the bath water - LOL. This is a great little product. Gives the temp quickly. You can also use the laser to point to exactly where you want to measure.

Got cold feet? This little gadget will also tell you just how cold!!!
