AUGUST 1--Raytek Corporation (Santa Cruz, CA; www.raytek.com/phototemp), a leader in infrared thermometry, has introduced its PhotoTemp MX6--an integrated infrared thermometer and digital camera. PhotoTemp lets you take noncontact temperature measurements while documenting them with digital photographs. Designed for plant-maintenance professionals to photograph, share, and store critical measurement results, PhotoTemp provides fast, easy, and accurate documentation, verification, and troubleshooting.
The PhotoTemp MX6 accurately shows the temperature measurement area with its True Spot coaxial laser sighting system and highlights it in a picture in the context of nearby objects. Temperature, location, and date/time data are superimposed on the PhotoTemp images when viewed on a computer or in reports. Up to 100 temperature measurements and photographs along an inspection route can be taken and stored in the PhotoTemp MX6 and later downloaded into a PC for analysis and reporting using Datatemp MX software, included with the unit.
