Infrared thermometer and digital camera

The PhotoTemp MX6 combines the features of an infrared thermometer and digital camera in one device. The unit uses a coaxial laser sighting system to highlight the area under measurement and is capable of taking as many as 100 temperature measurements. Measurements and digital photographs can be stored in the camera and later uploaded to a PC for analysis and reporting using the company’s software. It features a backlit display with 30 pre-set emissivity values, a built-in flash for low-light conditions, and a focus setting that adjusts to both long-distance and close-focus situations.
