About Digital Thermometers
Designed for use with thermocouples, digital thermometers require direct contact with a surface in order to measure temperature. They're generally more accurate than infrared thermometers, which measure temperature at a distance without the need to make contact.
As each thermocouple is different, the overall measurement range and capabilities of the digital thermometer depends upon which thermocouples can be used with it. Most of these instruments are compatible with common types of thermocouples such as K or J, but many others are also compatible with different thermocouple types such as T, E, N, R and S.
If you need to measure temperature at a distance and don't believe it'll be safe to measure temperature using one of these tools, we'd highly recommend using an IR thermometer instead. If the application is safe, use a digital thermometer to ensure you get the extra level of accuracy you need when making measurements.
