What is Raytek MiniTemp used for?

Use it for spotting costly energy losses around windows and doors, monitoring critical temperatures in kitchen or workshop, or ensuring the environment is comfortable and safe. Just pull the trigger! The MiniTemp thermometer shows the temperature in an instant on its large, backlit display.

How do you calibrate a general infrared thermometer?

Short of using a black body, the next best way to calibrate your infrared thermometer is to use a simple, inexpensive Infrared Comparator Cup. It is best to calibrate your infrared thermometer at more than one temperature (at 41°F [5°C] and 140°F [60°C] for example) and the Infrared Comparator Cup makes it easy.

Which infrared thermometers is best?

Our Top 6 Picks for Best Infrared Thermometer in 2021

  1. Best Overall – ThermoWorks Industrial Infrared Temperature Gun.
  2. Best for cooking – ThermoWorks Thermapen® IR.
  3. Also Great – Fluke 62 MAX Plus Non-contact Infrared Thermometer.
  4. Best Budget – Etekcity 1022D Dual Laser Digital Infrared Temperature Gun.

How does an infrared pyrometer work?

Infrared thermometers employ a lens to focus the infrared light emitting from the object onto a detector known as a thermopile. The thermopile is nothing but thermocouples connected in series or parallel. When the infrared radiation falls on the thermopile surface, it gets absorbed and converts into heat.

What is a digital pyrometer?

A pyrometer is a type of remote-sensing thermometer used to measure the temperature of distant objects. Modern pyrometers or infrared thermometers also measure the temperature of cooler objects, down to room temperature, by detecting their infrared radiation flux.

How do I reset my infrared thermometer?

To reset the unit, remove the batteries, wait 2 minutes and then re-install the batteries.

How do I know if my infrared thermometer is accurate?

The accuracy of an infrared thermometer can be checked using a comparator at any stable temperature. However, to reduce the possibility of a difference in temperature between the inside surface and the base test hole, it is more accurate at 22°C, ambient room temperature.

Can adults use forehead thermometer?

They are easily administered and can be used on infants, children, and adults. Some research indicates that temporal thermometers may be as accurate as rectal thermometers in children, and provide better readings than ear or armpit thermometers can.

Does infrared have radiation?

Infrared radiation (IR), or infrared light, is a type of radiant energy that’s invisible to human eyes but that we can feel as heat. IR is a type of electromagnetic radiation, a continuum of frequencies produced when atoms absorb and then release energy.

Is infrared light safe?

Infrared light is delivered to the site of injury or inflammation at certain wavelengths, promoting cell repair. The key characteristic of infrared light is its ability to penetrate even the deep layers of the skin, providing better pain relief. Also, infrared light is safe, natural, non-invasive, and painless.

Is infrared thermometer a pyrometer?

There are two basic kinds of pyrometers: optical pyrometers, where you look at a heat source through a mini-telescope and make a manual measurement, and electronic, digital pyrometers (also called infrared thermometers) that measure completely automatically.

What is the temperature range of the Raytek minitemp MT6 infrared thermometer?

The Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer has a temperature range of -30 to 500°C (-20 to 932°F) and a preset emissivity of 0.95. Intended for close range targets, the Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer has a distance to spot ratio of 10:1.

What makes the Raytek MT6 model unique?

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.

How does the MT6 work?

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.

What is the minimum target area of the MT6?

The MT6 measures a minimum target area of 1 inch in diameter from a distance of approximately 10 inches and measuring approximately a 6 inch area from 5 feet away.
