Test products: Klein Tools introduces a multi-function 12:1 Dual-Laser Infrared Thermometer (Cat. No. IR5) at an opening price point for professional-grade IR thermometers. The IR5 features dual-lasers that use a tight 12:1 distance-to-spot ratio for accurate measuring of temperatures between -22°F and 752°F. It also offers several calculation modes for a wide range of temperature measurement applications.
“Dual-laser targeting technology makes it easier to visualize the area being measured by an IR thermometer, resulting in more accurate measurement performance versus a single laser,” said Sean O’Flaherty, director of product management, “As an added value, Klein Tools is able to offer this dual-laser functionality at a price point that is in line with an IR thermometer that uses a single laser.”
The IR5 is compact with a soft-touch, overmolded housing for comfort, and can withstand drops of more than six feet onto concrete or steel.
