Take Temperature Measurements Safely with FLIR’s New TG54 & TG56

Thursday, October 15, 2015

Without temperature measurement, professionals in many different industries would have a harder time doing their jobs. Electricians would spend much more time determining whether a breaker is overheating. A car mechanic would have difficulty finding the hottest spot on an engine manifold, and a HVAC contractor might struggle to determine whether hot air is blowing through a vent that should be cold. With the help of two new infrared (IR) thermometers, FLIR is helping to make these everyday tasks that much easier.

Today FLIR launched the new TG54 and TG56 Spot IR Thermometers, which allow professionals to quickly and easily take measurements in places that are out of reach for most IR thermometers. These thermometers let users take non-contact temperature measurements with a distance-to-spot ratio of 24:1 (TG54) and 30:1 (TG56). That means that with a TG56, they can measure a one-inch sized target from up to 30 inches away! A built-in laser and powerful LED worklight help pinpoint the problem area, even in poor lighting conditions.

Both thermometers have a large, color display and a graphical menu structure so the high and low alarms are easy to set and can’t be missed. Every temperature setting is simple to find and select, including emissivity, which has predetermined levels and can be custom adjusted.

The TG54 and TG56 allow users to view their current temperature reading along with their last two readings together on one screen. This makes comparing temperature differences convenient without having to memorize or write them down.

The main differentiating feature between the two products is that the TG56 includes a thermocouple Type K input for added flexibility when taking measurements. Find out more about the TG54 and TG56 and how efficient they are for temperature measurement at www.flir.com/TG54-56.
