Raytek 3i Series Infrared Thermometer

Raytek 3i Series, Infrared ThermometerThe handheld Raytek 3i Series of infrared thermometers provides noncontact temperature measurement.

Advanced applications and processes need specialized tools like the Raytek 3i Series of infrared thermometers. The Raytek 3i Series' infrared thermometers measure surface temperature in places other thermometers cannot. With a choice of spectral responses, temperature ranges, laser sighting options, and on-board data logging capabilities, these Raytek infrared thermometers meet the individual requirements of demanding users.

Overcome the limitations of contact thermometers in manufacturing plants with Raytek 3i Series infrared thermometers. For the most accurate readings in hot environments, these non-contact infrared thermometers compensate for the energy reflected by the background around the target. Reflected background energy compensation allows for accurate measurement even when the area measured is reflecting energy from nearby objects with higher temperatures; for example, inside a furnace. Varying spectral responses, laser-sighting systems, and distance-to-measurement spot ratios ensure the Raytek 3i infrared thermometer's temperature measurements are precise.

Infrared Temperature Measurement - Technology Explained
Infrared thermometers measure temperature from a distance by detecting the amount of thermal electromagnetic radiation emitted from the object being measured. This allows users to accurately measure surface temperatures in hazardous, hard-to-reach places, or other situations in which non-contact temperature measurement is desirable. Infrared thermometer technology is useful in a wide range of applications – including industrial, laboratory, food service, fire fighting, hobby, and home use.

While the technology is relatively simple, the myriad of names given to these devices can be confusing. “Laser Thermometers” makes reference to the laser that helps aim the thermometer. “IR Sensors” and “IR Thermometers” make use of a common abbreviation for “infrared”. “Non-Contact Thermometers” is descriptive of the device’s ability to measure temperature from a distance. “Radiation Pyrometers” is a scientific/technical term for these devices.
