The new TG54-2 is a 20:1 spot IR thermometer can provide non-contact temperature readings with a distance-to-spot ratio of 20:1

Teledyne FLIR, part of Teledyne Technologies, has released two new spot IR thermometers: the FLIR TG54-2 and FLIR TG56-2.

Built on the foundation of FLIR’s TG54 and TG56 models, the FLIR TG54-2 and FLIR TG56-2 provide professionals in utility, building electricians, and industrial mechanics with advanced tools to perform accurate inspections and detect hazards before any contact is made.

The new TG54-2 is a 20:1 spot IR thermometer can provide non-contact temperature readings with a distance-to-spot ratio of 20:1, allowing users to measure smaller targets from a safer distance. Equipped with infrared technology, Class II laser sighting, and the ability to measure up to a maximum IR temperature of 850 °C (1562 °F), the TG54-2 ensures pinpoint precision. Built to endure a 3 m (9.8 ft) drop and carrying an IP65 rating, it's ready for even the most demanding applications.

FLIR TG54-2 20:1 Spot IR Thermometer:

  • Easily perform temperature measurement at safe distances
  • Accurately target objects at long distances with a 20:1 distance to spot ratio
  • Quickly adjust settings, set high/low alarms to efficiently perform inspections
  • Equipped with Class II laser sighting for focused measurements
  • Maximum IR temperature of 850 °C (1562 °F) for accurate measurements of high temperature targets.
  • Store up to 99 measurement points that can be quickly referenced for comparison and trending
  • Built-in LED worklights to illuminate dimly lit areas for faster and safer inspections
  • IP65 rating to meet the demands of harsh environments
  • 3m (9.8 ft) drop tested protecting the longevity of the tool

For those dealing with higher temperature readings, the FLIR TG56-2 measures IR temperature up to 1300 °C (2372 °F) and includes a Type K thermocouple for contact temperature measurements. The TG56-2 is also designed to offer non-contact temperature measurements from an even safer distance, thanks to its infrared technology, 30:1 distance-to-spot ratio and Class II laser sighting. The TG56-2's color display screen is designed for easy viewing of current and reference temperature readings simultaneously.

FLIR TG56-2 30:1 Spot IR Thermometer with Type K Thermocouple:

  • Easily perform temperature measurement at safe distances
  • Accurately target objects at long distances with a 30:1 distance to spot ratio
  • Quickly adjust settings, set high/low alarms to efficiently perform inspections
  • Equipped with Class II laser sighting for focused measurements
  • Maximum IR temperature of 1300 °C (2372 °F) for accurate measurements of high temperature targets.
  • Store up to 99 measurement points that can be quickly referenced for comparison and trending
  • Type K Thermocouple to capture contact temperature measurements
  • IP20 rating for proper operation in common industrial environments
  • Ergonomic ‘Single Hand’ design for simplified measurements and menu access

Whether you choose our TG54-2 or TG56-2, both models are designed to be trusted tools for professionals who require reliable, accurate, safe temperature measurements in their everyday work.
