Types of Infrared Thermometers 

The three groups of thermometers are:

  • Spot infrared: These thermometers take the temperature at a single spot on a large surface. Handheld thermometers fall in this category, and they're the most common.
  • Infrared scanning systems: The thermometer takes a single reading of the area, and it is ideal for measuring the temperature of large surface areas. 
  • Infrared thermal imaging: Best for when you have a surface with uneven temperature. The thermometer records the temperature of different spots in the area and displays the results in a thermogram.

Use the C48 Food Thermometer for Safety Control

The food service and food processing industries utilize this food thermometer as it is designed for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) programs. This versatile thermometer accepts various probes, allowing you to check the temperature of grill surfaces and test air temperatures in ovens and coolers.

The C48 food thermometer can also probe hot and cold foods — checking that food is safe to eat, which allows you to safeguard consumers from foodborne illnesses. You can use this thermometer in the kitchen to easily check whether egg products, meat and poultry are undercooked, as color is not a reliable indicator.
