PTC® Instruments: Infrared Thermometers

PTC® has chosen quality products from other manufactures to offer our customers a complete line of temperature measuring instrumentation.

PTC Metrology™ is Accredited by A2LA to ISO/IEC 17025 and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 and offers calibration services for infrared thermometers using a high quality black body temperature source. Temperature is measured with a Hart super thermometer and high temperature standard platinum resistance thermometers (SPRT) giving accurate results to 1000°C.
Certifications will include as received and as returned data, a statement of uncertainty, laboratory conditions, and information on the primary standards. PTC Metrology™ will notify you by email when your instrument is due for recalibration, in accordance with the period of validity that your quality system specifies.

Infrared Thermometer With Laser

15036 ThermoTrace® 8:1 Infrared Thermometer With Laser


  • Fahrenheit (Temperature Range -4° to 626°F)
  • Celcius (Temperature Range -20° to 330°C)
The ThermoTrace Infrared Thermometer with an 8:1 field of view, is full featured and competitively priced. This infrared thermometer is a quality temperature measuring tool, and is engineered with a sleek, compact pocket design weighing only 3.8 ounces (108 grams), about the half the weight of comparable pistol-grip-style infrared thermometers. This infrared thermometer is designed for instant, non-contact surface temperature measurement. The ThermoTrace Infrared Thermometer is N.I.S.T. traceable and is CE marked.

Add N.I.S.T. 3 point infrared certification available Black Body 23 to 500C (CERTIRBB400C $225.00)

Waterproof Infrared Thermometer

15006 ThermoTrace® 15:1 Waterproof Infrared Thermometer With Laser


  • Fahrenheit (Temperature Range F 32° to 932°)
  • Celcius (Temperature Range C 0° to 500°)
The ThermoTrace Waterproof Infrared Thermometer is ideal in many environments because of its sturdy, waterproof construction. Use this infrared thermometer to quickly check surface temperatures of products in hard to reach areas, inside refrigerated cases or other cold storage areas, or check food at salad bars and hot buffets. The infrared thermometers can safely measure extremely hot surfaces, moving objects, or odd shapes. Using infrared thermometer reduces threat of contamination of food products or sterile mediums in biological or clean room applications.

ThermoTrace Waterproof Infrared Thermometer features include a highly focused 15:1 field of view, plus two measuring modes: normal and continuous. Alarm limits can be set for high and low temperature readings, and a memory function holds up to 99 points of temperature data. These features make it a popular quality assurance tool.

Emissivity/ Reflectivity

Emissivity ratio is the rate of energy emitted from an objects surface condition, primarily by how reflective that surface is. Dark or painted surfaces and most organic things (wood, water, plastics, food, ceramics, etc.) reflect very little while shiny or oxidized metallic surfaces do reflect the infrared from surrounding objects.

Every object radiates invisible infrared light based on it's temperature. Through a set of optics and a sensing element, the Infrared Thermometer detects this amount of radiant energy and instantaneously displays the corresponding temperature. The revolutionary method of instantaneous and non contact temperature measurement, harnessed in a compact unit of advanced electronic technology, is truly the "next generation" thermometer.
