The Infrared Thermometer Model CA879 is a non-contact temperature measuring instrument. It provides precision measurement with its laser target feature.

To measure the temperature of an object, simply point the gun at the surface of the object and the temperature will appear on the digital display. The thermometer has an automatic shut-off feature. Shut-off will occur approximately 10 seconds after the trigger is released.

All objects whose temperature is higher than absolute zero (-273.15 K) emit infrared energy. This energy radiates in all directions at the speed of light. When the gun is pointed at an object, the probe's lens senses this energy and focuses it onto an infrared detector comprised of a thermocouple stack. The detector produces a voltage signal proportional to the amount of energy received, and therefore proportional to the object's temperature.

Certain objects emit infrared energy, but also reflect it. Unlike matt surfaces, shiny or highly-polished surfaces tend to reflect energy. This reflection is represented by a factor called emissivity, which may vary from 0.1 for a highly reflective object to 1 for a black object. In the case of the Infrared Thermometer Model CA879, the emissivity is preset at 0.95, the most frequent value, enabling approximately 90% of all applications to be covered.

Features

  • Easy one-hand operation
  • Non-contact infrared sensor
  • Laser guide for precise aim
  • Measures temperature in °F and °C
  • Fixed 0.95 emissivity
  • Auto-HOLD function
  • 2000-count backlit LCD

Applications

  • Electrical troubleshooting
  • Food safety and processing
  • Automotive repair and maintenance
  • Marine maintenance and repairs
  • Test faulty motor winding insulation
  • Test overheated high voltage transformers
  • Test terminals on circuit breaker panels
  • Perform HVAC/R energy audits

Application Note: Detecting elevated body temperatures is often our first line of defense

The purpose of this screening is to differentiate people who are well from those who have a fever. We'll walk you through the correct use of the instruments and how to value the results they provide you with.
