Digital thermometer manufacturer Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI) has launched the RayTemp HSE IR industrial thermometer for all types of workplace non-contact temperature measurement, including foodservice environments.
Utilising infrared technology with an easy-to-read LCD display and three-button keypad, RayTemp HSE can analyse Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) and play a key role in workplace infection control plans.
By aiming at the target and pressing the measure button, the thermometer displays the accurate temperature of any workplace surface.
Infrared thermometers can take surface temperatures at a distance, providing accurate temperatures without having to touch the object being measured. The RayTemp HSE incorporates a 1:1 optic ratio (target distance ratio) and a fixed emissivity of 0.95.
Furthermore, each thermometer is housed in a robust ABS case that contains Biomaster Antimicrobial Technology, which should maintaining hygiene by reducing bacterial growth.
Jason Webb, ETI director, said: “RayTemp HSE will assist with infection control thanks to its screening feature. It is a multi-tool capable of doing a variety of different measurements and its temperature screening will help reduce the risk of any virus spreading, with hospitality sectors able to screen customers once they’ve entered to re-assure them it’s safe to be there.
“Additionally, office workers can be given temperature checks when they arrive at work, further reducing the risk of a virus entering the workplace. Using advanced technology for modern day measurement needs, our thermometer not only ensures the temperature is accurate, but it keeps workers and customers safe and supports business continuity.”
The RayTemp can also measure forehead temperature. In this mode, the multi-colour display show’s readings in 2 seconds, implementing a traffic light system that specifies an individual’s general wellness. Green for a healthy temperature and yellow or red indicating whether the person being tested may have a fever.
The thermometer is designed to operate within cold or hot environments if the instrument is allowed to acclimatise for no more than 30 minutes. This is said to improve readings and maintain accurate 2 second results.
