The HDS (High Distance to Spot) thermometer is ideal when taking surface temperatures at greater distances than what a normal infrared will allow.

The high-performance hand-held thermometer has a perfect combination of an aerodynamic barrel, ergonomic handling, a large LCD and a colorful control panel.

Features and Benefits:

  • Rugged & ergonomic design that makes it easy to hold and take measurements
  • High distance DS ratio (30:1) that allows for measuring the temperature of an object from a distance — which is ideal for food distribution centers
  • Backlit dual display LCD for easy use in low-light conditions
  • Ultra low power consumption in shutdown mode, enabling you to complete large amounts of work before replacing the batteries
  • Switchable laser sighting with an electronic trigger lock that you can pull to start using the thermometer
  • °F / °C switch makes it ideal for various applications anywhere in the world
  • Temperature data storage that lets you retrieve data when you need it
  • An audible alarm that notifies you when the thermometer takes a reading
  • High-quality hard carrying case that protects the device and makes it portable


  • Has a distance spot ratio of 30:1
  • Measures temperature at a range -25.6°F to 1,400°F (-32°C to 760°C)
  • Is accurate with a measurement error of ±3°F from -4°F to 212°F (±2°C from -20°C to 100°C)
  • Has a high resolution: 0.1°F (0.1°C)

Types of Infrared Thermometers

There are three groups of thermometers with different functionalities:

  • Spot infrared: Measures the temperature of a small portion of a surface
  • Infrared thermal imaging: Divides a surface into small portions and measures the temperature of each spot
  • Infrared scanning systems: Measures the temperature of a large surface 

How to Use the HDS Infrared Thermometer

The thermometer has a control panel with an on and off switch. To use it, switch on the device — then determine whether you want to use °F or °C and set your preference. When you're ready, hold the thermometer 30 inches from your targeted surface and save the reading when the alarm rings.  

The thermometer buttons are labeled to show you which one changes temperature, switches on the laser and turns the backlight on and off. It uses AAA batteries that you can replace when you see a low power notification on the display. 

Where to Use the High Distance Thermometer

The thermometer is ideal for industrial applications where you don't want to touch the surface of the item. For example, you can use it in a food distribution center to record the temperature of produce without making contact with the food. These thermometers also work great for caterers and restaurants.
