RIGID’s micro IR-100 IR Thermometer

Ultra Sharp Dual Class II Lasers easily illuminate the surface area being measured

Elyria OH, USA — The RIDGID micro IR-100 non-contact infrared thermometer provides simple, quick and accurate surface temperature readings at the push of a button. By squeezing the trigger and pointing the ultra-sharp dual class II lasers to spotlight the surface being measured, the micro IR-100 thermometer provides an immediate temperature measurement on a clear, easy-to-read backlit LCD display.

The rugged ergonomic pistol-style grip allows the user to keep a solid grip on the device in the harshest industrial environments.

The 20-to-1 distance-to-spot ratio allows the user to take more accurate measurements from farther distances. Audible and visual high and low alarm settings alert the user quickly to temperatures outside of the set ranges.

The micro IR-100 thermometer has a large temperature measuring range of -58 ??F to 1472 ??F. The device is also equipped with a tripod mount for repeatable, precise temperature measurements.

Applications include diagnosis of heating and ventilation problems, preventative monitoring of electrical motors and systems, trouble shooting steam traps, and diagnosing fuses and circuit breakers for overheating.
