The imaging thermometer is designed for easy, accurate temperature measurements of various surfaces and to find trouble spots. Built for professionals, the tools were built to be used for locating overloaded circuits or wiring issues, duct temperatures, finding leaks around doors and windows and diagnosing equipment issues.
“The DeWalt innovation team recognized the need for a tool that combines the compact size and value of the existing 12 Volt MAX IR thermometer with the high functionality of a traditional thermal camera,” said Christine Potter, director of marketing with DeWalt. “With the launch of the new imaging thermometer, we’re excited to offer an innovative jobsite solution that measures temperature, reports results in an easy-to-read display and clearly pinpoints trouble spots at a price point more accessible to contractors.”
The imaging thermometer measures from 14 to 480 degrees Fahrenheit and uses a 2.2-inch color screen to switch between all-thermal, all-visual and blended-image display. The thermal images use a color range to show temperatures and the visual images are photos of the actual surface.
Users can capture, save and transfer images using the micro SD card. The imaging thermometer also features report-writing software to assist with analyzing trouble spots. By using non-contact temperature measurement, the tool is designed to be used accurately over distances and in many materials.
“The number of tool reviews on our site are sure to grow with the release of this imaging thermometer,” says Stephen Glaesman, CEO with ToolSelect, “We’re especially interested to see what our members think of the toggle feature, letting them see the temperatures against the actual surface.”
