NEW: DexTempTM 1000 Infrared Thermometer

Powered through PC USB Port

DexTempTM 1000

Dexter, MI, USA  —  The Dexter Research Center DexTempTM 1000 is a small economical calibrated non-contact alerting thermometer for monitoring the temperature of objects using infrared technology.

The DexTempTM 1000 works in conjunction with a Windows® based computer and is powered via the computer’s USB port. The easy to install software, features real-time temperature plots, over and under temperature SMS text and Email alerts, and data logging on your computer.

The user can set over temperature and under temperature alert limits that notify by SMS text and email when an alert threshold has been met or exceeded, as well as notification on your computer.

The DexTempTM 1000 is based on Dexter’s leadership in infrared thermopile technology, and supports easy set-up for measuring temperature without contact with an object.

Not designed for applications involving personal health, public safety, or other applications more suited to complex and robust technology where high reliability is critical.

Dexter Research Center, Inc. was founded by Robert Toth, Ph.D in 1977. As the leading thin film and materials expert who introduced low-cost high-performance infrared sensing to the world, Bob believes:

  • No other infrared strategy outperforms a thermopile as an affordable sensor, and
  • There is no substitute for collaboration as a means to optimize infrared sensor and detector performance, packaging, reliability and durability, and at the heart of your temperature sensor, motion sensor, smoke detector or motion detector, the detector itself should be optimzed to the task and not demand a work-around to make it perform.
