InfraRed Thermometer Probe ..
Well I have many K-type probes and nothing as IR probe, and I suggested to CEM, to offer to me one sample of those too for a review.



The pricing of it, is at about 50$ and it is available also in Germany a re branded, for 50 EUR.

What advantages does it offer over a standalone infrared thermometer?

While the accuracy seems a bit lower than my Fluke (cheapest one they make), it's also about half the price. It would also allow for easy data logging of temps through your DMM or using min/max/avg or hold functions. My Fluke gives you a max reading, but it shuts off automatically about 10 seconds after you release the trigger, so you don't have them for very long.

I dont know about that Petro. It has a decent spot size but I cant see it being very useful having a fixed emissivity combined with its low accuracy. I see this being a tool to tell if it 'hot or not'. Granted, this can be useful in many areas.

The first practical that I can think:
a) anti-stealing!!  ( its just a probe and not a fancy complete device )
b) It is more compact in size, so to have it in your tool box.
c) You can keep the safety distance compared with K-type probes.
