This can be advantageous when it’s impractical to insert a probe into the item being measured or if the surface is just out of reach.

Combining the advanced technology of two ETI designed and manufactured products (the RayTemp 2 Plus infrared thermometer and the Thermapen Professional digital probe thermometer), the Thermapen IR offers the convenience of two instruments in one compact unit.
