Raytek Minitemp MT6 Infrared Thermometer

Raytek Minitemp MT6, Infrared ThermometerThe portable Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer provides noncontact temperature measurement to automotive professionals.

Diagnose problems faster and more easily with the Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer. Portable IR thermometers have become an indispensable tool for automotive troubleshooting and diagnosis. Spot cooling system faults, identify engine misfires, check for proper A/C performance, verify catalytic converter operation, and much more with your MiniTemp MT6.

The laser point sighting on the Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer helps to direct measurements toward the target, and the large backlit display shows both the current and maximum readings simultaneously. The MiniTemp MT6 has a temperature range of -30 to 500°C (-20 to 932°F) and a preset emissivity of 0.95.

Intended for close range targers, the Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer has a distance to spot ratio of 10:1. The MT6 measures a minimum target area of 1 inch in diameter from a distance of approximately 10 inches, and measuring approximately a 6 inch area from 5 feet away.

With a protective boot for added durability, award winning ergonomic design and Raytek quality and accuracy, the Raytek MiniTemp MT6 infrared thermometer is the perfect introduction to infrared temperature measurements in automotive diagnostics.

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.
