Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI) has launched the non-contact wireless BlueTherm infrared thermometer probe.
This can measure surface temperatures of liquids, semi-solids and granular materials. The data can then be transmitted wirelessly via a secure connection to mobile phones and tablets by aiming the thermometer at the desired device and pressing a button on the handle.
The unit will securely transmit temperature data up to a maximum of 20metres (line of sight). It is compatible with Android, Windows CE mobile, iOS or Bluetooth wireless devices.
The BlueTherm IR measures temperature between -49.9°C to 249.9°C with a 0.1°C resolution. It has a distance to target ratio of 5:1, therefore the unit should be positioned as close to the target as possible without the need of touching the surface.
The probe is designed to eliminate the need for wires and connectors which often cause many traditional probes to break or fail.
Each unit incorporates a heavy duty ribbed, polypropylene handle with built-in red and blue LED. The flashing blue LED indicates Bluetooth comms transfer, the red LED indicates on/off and power status.
The probe is supplied with basic ‘app’ software. Optional accessories include a protective silicone boot. The BlueTherm IR is priced at £115 (android) or £125 (iOS) plus VAT.
