DeWalt announced its 12V MAX Lithium Ion Infrared (IR) Thermometer Kit (DCT414S1) as part of its new 12 Volt MAX cordless platform. The IR thermometer is ideal for electricians, plumbers, remodelers and HVAC contractors who are tasked with scanning for temperature changes on the jobsite and locating potential trouble spots.
The IR thermometer is part of the new 12 Volt MAX cordless platform and utilizes the same rechargeable lithium-ion battery that powers the other six 12 Volt MAX tools, so contractors who get into this new DeWalt system will easily be able to add this tool to their arsenal and feel good about not spending too much.
In addition to the patent-pending LED hot (red) and cold (blue) spot indicator to quickly locate temperature changes, the DCT414S1 also provides audio alarms to alert contractors in noisy work conditions. The IR thermometer measures temperatures from negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit to 932 degrees Fahrenheit.
The thermometer records maximum/minimum and average temperatures and features a bright green backlit display for easy-to-read recordings. With adjustable emissivity, the thermometer offers accuracy across a wide range of materials.
The new IR Thermometer Kit (DCT414S1), which includes an infrared thermometer, 12 Volt MAX Lithium Ion battery, a 40 minute charger and a kit box, will be available in the fourth quarter at home centers and industrial distributors. The IR thermometer kit is expected to retail for approximately $149. The tool comes with a three-year limited warranty, one year free service contract and 90-day money back guarantee.
