Cold Zone Infrared (CZ-IR)

Infrared Thermometers and COVID-19 Temperature Screening


  • Best IR for Cold Chain applications
  • Minimal ambient effect for walk-ins
  • Range from -67 to 428°F (-55 to 220°C)
  • 1 second response
  • Adjustable emissivity
  • Max and Min temperature readings
  • High accuracy to ±1.1°F (±0.6°C)

The Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer is a non-contact infrared thermometer that measures surface temperatures in walk-ins, freezers, and cold storage units with confidence. The Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer is not affected by drastic changes in ambient temperature, and allows you to check cold temperatures all day long without waiting for instrument equilibration.

The Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer is perfect for measuring surface temperatures in grocery stores, food processing, food storage, cold chain monitoring, transportation, restaurants, convenient stores, HVAC, inspection, and general purpose industrial. The Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer outperforms other infrared guns at three times the cost in low-temperature applications.

Emissivity is adjustable on the Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer so you can point and measure just about any surface. Check out our emissivity chart for approximating your material.

Each Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer ships with a certificate of conformance stating that we used our NIST-Traceable equipment to check each one. An optional calibration certificate is available with test data. Also included with the Cold Zone Infrared Thermometer is a convenient neck lanyard and installed battery so it's ready to use right out of the package.

*IR accuracy can be affected by the emissivity setting, target spot size, and rapid changes in ambient temperature. Accuracy specification based on ambient temperature of 77°F ±2°F (25°C ±1°C).

**This range describes the ambient or environmental temperature range in which the entire instrument can be used.

Ambient Effect

The CZ-IR is always ready to measure temperature accurately as you move from warm to cold environments.

This graph displays the error found in most IR thermometers when you take them into a cold environment. The competition requires you to allow up to 30 minutes for the IR thermometer to overcome ambient temperature errors.
