The IRT-2 is a professional high accuracy infrared thermometer that reads type T thermocouples. Designed for lab, warehouse, quality assurance, HACCP and much more, the IRT-2 now includes a circle laser for more precise targeting of infrared measurements.

  • The IRT-2 has the best accuracy of any handheld infrared thermometer in its class, and includes a full measurement range from -76 to 1022°F. It features adjustable emissivity for virtually all surface types, min/max to record high and lows during use, high and low audible alarms and backlit display for poorly lit areas.

    A unique circle laser pattern makes the IRT-2 a standout in infrared meters. The 8 laser dots show you the diameter of the area being measured. As you move closer or further from the target the laser circle will change diameter. You always know your spot size.

    The IRT-2 Infrared Thermometer includes a thermocouple socket for use with any type T thermocouple probe. A two line display shows infrared and thermocouple measurements simultaneously. Select from dozens of standard industrial or lab grade type T probes. Many optional lab probes are used in lab research with ultra-fast response micro needle tips for very small specimens.

    And, with a 12:1 distance-to-spot ratio, the Industrial Infrared Thermometer allows you to measure small target areas from further away (1 inch spot at 12 inch distance). This keeps the lens cool when measuring hot surface temperatures.

    If you’re a health inspector, food QA professional or laboratory researcher, the IRT-2 is your best choice.
