PCE-IR 1600 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer
High-temperature infrared (IR) pyrometer gun measures temperatures up to 1600ºC / 2912°F

PCE-IR 1600 is a high-temperature non-contact infrared (IR) thermometer gun or pyrometer ideal for use in steel, metal and ceramic mold casting and other high-temperature industrial applications. Thanks to an impressive optical resolution of 300:1, the PCE-IR 1600 pyrometer can measure the temperature of very small objects. In addition, the pyrometer's emissivity can be adjusted according to the surface of the material to be measured.


The pyrometer's internal memory stores up to 2000 measurement protocols. The device includes a USB port, data cable and Windows-compatible software for quick and easy data transfer to a PC for further analysis.
