DeltaTrak, a leader in the manufacture of portable test instruments for a host of industries including food, has launched a family of Pocket ThermoTrace Infrared Thermometers.
The Model 15030 comes with an 8:1 field of view and is marketed by the company as a quality temperature measuring tool, that has a compact pocket design. It weighs 4.5 ounces (127 grams), which is said to be about half the weight of comparable pistol-grip-style infrared thermometers.
Other features include a tight 0.1° resolution, laser targeting of a spot area 125mm in diameter at 1 metre, and a significantly broader temperature range of -40°F to 590°F/ -40°C to 310°C. The company has designed the instrument for instant, non-contact surface temperature measurement, and claims that it provides the safest way to measure hot, hard-to-reach, or moving parts. Its non-contact infrared technology is also said to eliminate potential damage or contamination of products. The ThermoTrace Infrared Thermometer is NIST traceable and is CE marked.
DeltaTrak manufactures portable test instruments and software that monitor and record temperature, humidity, and pH parameters. Products and services are sold worldwide to customers in over 40 countries. The company is headquartered in California, US, where it also has R & D offices and a manufacturing and distribution facility. Electronic assembly operation takes place in Shenzhen, China.
