Since 1910, General Tools has grown to become the recognized industry leader for specialty hand tools and instruments. The new IRT206 Heat Seeker is a Gun Style Thermometer used for obtaining accurate temperatures instantly without having to contact the object being measured. It works by capturing and measuring the invisible infrared energy naturally emitted from all objects. It offers an easy and safe method to instantly measure surface temperatures of objects which are difficult or unsafe to contact. The Heat Seeker has a rugged, ergonomic design and features a backlit LCD display with built-in laser sighting. The IRT206 has a measurement range of -4 Deg to 608 Degrees F (0 to 320C) and utilizes a switchable on/off laser pointer for target location.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good diagnostic tool This infrared thermometer is testing accurate with its readings. Planning on using it this winter to test newly replaced windows vs. older window's heat transfer. Also plan on using it to detect cold air leaks on doors and windows. My 'value' rating may improve based on these findings. October 14, 2014
