Food Inspector IR Gun has unique features

Food Inspector Infrared Thermometer FI-40L
Among IR thermometers, our Food Inspector model has some special features that set it apart.

It has one of the narrowest beam (16:1) of any commercial unit now in use in the food industry.  This allows reading at greater distances.  You can easily get a good reading of a refrigerated display case from a ten foot distance.

This instrument has the lowest “thermal shock” rating of any unit now in the industry: 7 seconds.  This is important when going from refrigeration measurement to steam tables and cooking.  Some units do not stabilize for minutes.  The food inspector saves valuable time.

This is a new standard for professional temperature measurement in perishable warehouses, distribution centers and food service businesses, where it is used to conduct rapid surveys of both refrigeration and cooking temperatures.  It is a very accurate unit, and is simple in operation with a minimum of buttons to push–just aim and read.
