quickTEMP Non-Contact Thermometer

For Non-Contact Infrared
Temperature Measurement

quickTEMP is the most affordable hand-held, battery-operated sensor that safely and accurately measures temperature using non-contact infrared technologies.

How the quickTEMP Works

All objects emit measurable infrared energy. The quickTEMP uses   special optics to gather infrared energy from a target surface and focuses this energy onto a custom detector. At that point, the detector will convert the infrared energy into an electrical signal proportionate to the temperature of the target surface. The final outcome is a digital temperature measurement in degrees Fahrenheit or Centigrade.

A quickTEMP Demonstration

It's easy to operate the quickTEMP. Simply point at the desired target, press and hold the "on" button for the temperature to display - no contact is ever needed. The quickTEMP has an initial temperature response time of 1 second and a continous reading to be used for thermal profiling.

Measuring with the quickTEMP

Direct the quickTEMP toward the target area. The total infrared energy emitted into the sensor will be averaged from within the field of view. The sensor's field of view is denoted by a distance-to-spot ratio (D/S). The quickTEMP has a D/S ratio of 3:1 and measures the emitted energy, within the field of view, one-third the size of the working distance (for example, at 3 inches away, your spot size is 1 inch, etc.)
