Offering complete convenience, this handy infrared thermometer infers temperature from a portion of the thermal radiation emitted by the object being measured. Featuring a laser to assist in aiming, this thermometer is the perfect solution for measuring temperatures from a distance, without contact with the object to be measured.
This thermometer is useful for measuring engine temperatures for tuning, or under circumstances where thermocouples or other probe type sensors cannot be easily used. Temperature is a great indicator of fuel combustion, for example lean versus rich nitro tuning can be easily diagnoses using the temperature after a given warm up and idle period.
Some other usage examples include where the object to be measured is moving or out of reach; where the object is surrounded by an electromagnetic field; the object temperature is above the recommended use point of a contact sensor, or contact with a sensor could mar the object to be measured.
