See what you’ve been missing.

Get a fresh look at automotive troubleshooting with a revolutionary new tool category that empowers you to go right to the hot or cold spots with blended visual and thermal heat map images.

With the VT02 Visual IR Thermometer, you can perform inspections significantly faster than with traditional IR thermometers and see what you are measuring.

Follow a few simple steps that will help ensure a more accurate reading in these top 10 applications:

  • Have direct access to the target you are measuring. Disassembly may be required around your target.
  • When you’ve found a potential issue using the blended heat map, move closer to take a center point temperature measurement. The exclusive Near/Far feature in the VT02 allows you to get as close as six inches with thermal heat map images that are accurately aligned.
  • Establish baseline temperatures in your most common applications so that an unusual reading can help you predict that something may be wrong.
  • Understand temperature characteristics such as emissivity which can influence your readings.
