Milwaukee Tool says its four new infrared temp-guns feature the clearest screens and fastest scanning in their categories.
“Today, the majority of units in this category simply meet performance expectations such as distance-to-spot ratio and temperature range, and are not built to withstand the durability demands of the jobsite,” says Ben Cabot, product manager. “We will take the expectations for this category to the next level, delivering premium features in the form of readability of the display, ease at which users can leverage built-in functionality, and a quality construction/rugged design that is fit for today’s jobsite.”
Delivering readability both indoors and outdoors, each of the new units feature a premium LCD screen for the clearest readings possible. A simplified keypad and interface makes taking measurements easier than ever, and with a simple hi/low alert set up, users are able to quickly troubleshoot problems. With a fully bumpered nose, shielded LCD and over-molding for increased durability and grip, the new infrared temp-guns are impact resistant and able to survive drops of up to 1.8m (6ft.).
The most compact of the four, the alkaline 10:1 Infrared Temp-Gun (2267-20) has a temperature range of -30 to 400°C (-22 to 752°F) and a 10 to 1 distance-to-spot ratio to provide a safe and accurate way to measure surface temperature for a wide variety of applications.
Within the most popular 12:1 category, Milwaukee will offer both an alkaline (2268-20) and 12V (2278-20) unit with a temperature range of -30 to 550°C (-22 to 1,022°F.) The 12V unit will be an extension of the Milwaukee M12 line that now offers over 70 solutions on one battery platform.
For long range measurement needs, the 30:1 Infrared/Contact Temp-Gun (2269-20) will also be available with an infrared range of -40 to 800°C (-40 to 1,472°F) and a contact range of -40 to 550°C (-40 to 1,022°F.) With the ability to log 99 measurements, users are able to reference prior measurements and track equipment performance closely.
