AUGUST 30--Raytek Corporation (Santa Cruz, CA; www.raytek.com/phototemp) has introduced the PhotoTempMX6--an integrated infrared thermometer and digital camera. PhotoTemp lets the user 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.

The PhotoTemp MX6 leverages the features of earlier MX series products, including the 16-point True Spot coaxial laser, an accurate sighting system found in the infrared thermometer. In addition, it features a backlit display with 30 preset emissivity values, a built-in flash for low-light conditions, a focus setting to get the best results in long-distance or close-focus situations, and it stores up to 100 photographs for downloading.
