Infrared-LC

Infrared-LCThe Infrared-LC™ is a cost effective infrared thermometer unit that incorporates selectable emissivity. This unit is a solid performer in a variety of applications.  Adjustable emissivity means that this unit can be used with a broader range of targets, including heat producing machinery, HVAC equipment, ovens, as well as the regular range of food product applications, especially deep frozen foods.  

Like much more expensive models, the Infrared-LC™ has laser sighting.  The targeting is a 10:1 ratio cone, giving very precise targeting with the single dot laser target indication.

Food Inspector FI-40L 

The FI-40L is the new standard for professional temperature measurement in perishable warehouses, distribution centers and food service businesses, where it is used to conduct rapid surveys of both refrigeration and cooking temperatures.  

It is a very accurate unit, and is simple in operation with a minimum of buttons to push--just aim and read. It has the narrowest beam (16:1) of any commercial unit now in use in the food industry.  This allows reading at greater distances.  Its rapid compensation time (7 seconds maximum) allows quicker transition from cooking/steam table measurements to refrigeration measurements. 

This is an excellent choice for a commercial kitchen or food processing plant where hot liquids need checking. Calibrated specifically for use in food safety and quality usage with 0.97 Fixed Emissivity (perfect for food applications)

Compact IR Thermometer

Most of us are familiar with the standard "gun" style IR thermometers.  Some manufacturers have from time to time brought out smaller inexpensive IR units designed for pocket storage, but most of these have been pretty inaccurate or have not been sufficiently durable for daily use. That has changed. 
Our new AQA 1720 is all metal construction, and is a solid performer.  We see these becoming a standard tool for temperature measurement in the food industries as more people begin to acknowledge their quality and usability. 
 

  • All metal construction for durability 
  • Range -27 to 428F (-33 to 220C) 
  • Accuracy 2% of reading or 2C  0.1 resolution for accurate readings 
  • Selectable F/C 1:1 
  • Distance Ratio: 1:1 (no need for laser)
  • LCD display 
  • Low battery indication 
  • Automatic power OFF after 15 sec 
  • Response Time (90%) 1 second 
  • Dimensions 3.25 x 0.5 inches  W
  • ave Length Response 5-14μm 
  • Weight (with battery) 1.4oz (45 grams) 
  • Batteries 2 LR44  (included) 
  • Battery Life 180hr (typical)

ThermaTwin™ Dual Function Infrared / Thermocouple  



Here is a breakthrough that the food industry has been waiting for.  Most managers appreciate the speed and efficiency of non-contact temperature surveillance using IR thermometers, but realize that cross calibration is necessary for reliable data.  

IR thermometers take only the "skin" temperature, but that temperature always has a predicable relationship with the core temperature.  To get good calibration on an IR survey, you have to take along a digital thermometer with a penetration probe and "cross index" the probe data with the IR scan data.  It can be really cumbersome and time consuming.
 

Now you can do both within one instrument...the ThermaTwin™ is a combined laser sighted IR thermometer and high accuracy thermocouple thermometer.  Both tools are in one package.   

Unit range is -76F to +932F (-60C to + 500C).


  • Operating Range: +32F to +122F (0 to +50C)  Accuracy: +/-1.8F (1.0C)

DualTemp 2 IR / Probe Thermometer

We have tested several of these combo IR and integral probe units.  This is the most accurate and rugged of the group, and the manufacturer stands behind the product with excellent warranty performance.  This unit is a bit more robust than the Dual Range Pocket IR (above) and has a few more good features.  It is also NSF certified for use in regulated programs.

The Platinum RTD probe is very stable and will not need periodic recalibration.  The case is IP65 which makes cleaning an easy job...just clean in detergent and hot water with no instrument damage.

AQA 1721 Long Distance Dual Range 
Here is a breakthrough that the food industry has been waiting for.  Most managers appreciate the speed and efficiency of non-contact temperature surveillance using IR thermometers, but realize that cross calibration is necessary for reliable data.  IR thermometers take only the "skin" temperature, but that temperature always has a predicable relationship with the core temperature.  

To get good calibration on an IR survey, you have to take along a digital thermometer with a penetration probe and "cross index" the probe data with the IR scan data.  It can be really cumbersome and time consuming.
 

Now you can do both within one instrument...the long distance dual function unit is a combined laser sighted IR thermometer and high accuracy thermocouple thermometer.  Both tools are in one package. 
 

Plus, with the 16:1 ratio, you can scan a target from across a room and get a tight target reading.  To facilitate long distance spot reading, the laser dot is extra bright.

AQA 1515 Food Unit with Upward Display

This is the instrument that you have been waiting for if you have to take a lot of temperature measurements in open cases, cooking situations, etc. with a limited amount of time. It has been specifically designed for the food industry, especially for steam table and cooking temperature applications. 

Avoid cross contamination, hit moving targets or targets too hot to physically probe.  You can save time because of the unique "one-handed" operation
 

Only weighs half a pound. This is the same instrument used by health inspectors. Best used at 4 foot range or less--not a long distance unit.
 

It uses the 8-14m spectral range that cuts through steam to get a good reading!
 

The AQA1515 is the only IR unit with a built in lanyard loop (carry it around your neck to keep hands free).
 
  • Hold Function (7 seconds) 
  • F or C display switch 
  • Range: -25-400 F (-30 - 200C)  
  • 1C (2 F) accuracy  [at HACCP critical range (32-150 F (0 - 60C)]  
  • 0.5 second response time 
  • 4:1 distance ratio is ideal for closer reading
