The Fluke 62 Mini Infrared Thermometer will allow you to read temperatures from -20 to 932 degrees Fahrenheit — while keeping at a safe distance. Great for motor maintenance, electrical, heating, and many other uses, the Fluke 62 stores the maximum temperature so you don’t have to write it down, and the built-in laser shows you what you’re shooting at.

Fluke is well-known and respected for very high-quality electronic testing products, so $90 for the Fluke 62 and a nylon belt holster seems like a good deal.

    You seem to have lost many of the recent comments that had been posted. Maybe it the terrible automatic refresh that you have on your otherwise great site – hint hint.
    Nonetheless, I commented before that we had started out with a Raytek (a Fluke Comapany – with Fluke being a Danaher company) ST25 – which was aimed at the auto mechanic market. It was a nice tool – but had a set emissivity (0.95 – that’s found on many lower-end IR thermometers). It is fine if you point at a dull black body of flat paint – but worthless to check the temp of aluminum plate or copper heating pipe. We switched over to Raytek ST80’s (now being sold as Fluke 68) and bought one high-end MX4 (now Fluke 574) – you can set emissivity on these and get accurate results for varying materials.
    We use a table of emisivities like that provided on this site:

    These are great tools in the restoration business. Point them at a water-damaged section of drywall or wood while it’s still damp, and you can tell exactly how much material is damaged. The damaged section will read colder than the undamaged section.

    A good application!
    And a lot cheaper than buying a $20,000 FLIR thermal imaging camera
