BEDFORDSHIRE, United Kingdom - The new PyroPen U from Calex Electronics is a pocket-sized infrared thermometer that conveniently clips into your pocket, just like a pen. It will measure temperatures from -20°C to +500°C with a resolution of 0.1° and provide instantaneous, maximum, minimum and average readings in °C or °F. Adjustable emissivity allows the unit to measure different materials and a built-in laser makes sighting simple.

This new model has a built-in memory for storing up to 100 temperatures, which can be downloaded at a later date using the CalexSoft software and USB cable provided. It can also be left connected to a PC for continuous real time data acquisition and graph plotting. The data is then available to export in a comma separated variable (CSV) format to other programmes as required.

Each unit is supplied in a foam-padded hard case as standard, which helps protect it when not in use and provides a neat way to store the software and interface cable.

The PyroPen U is particularly useful for test, inspection and maintenance applications in industries such as food & beverage, automotive research & manufacture, paper & packaging and HVAC. However, when hooked up to a PC the PyroPen U is also ideal for applications such as machine monitoring, laboratory work, electronics design and R&D.

PyroPen U is RoHS compliant and conform to EN 61326-1:2006 for EMC. It is designed and built by Calex Electronics in the UK, a company with more than 30 years experience of non-contact infra-red temperature measurement.
