    FLIR TG56 Spot IR Thermometer 30:1 with Thermocouple

    PLEASE NOTE: Not all infrared thermometers are suitable for accurately measuring body temperature or detecting fevers (such as those commonly associated with COVID-19 or Influenza).

    For applications such as these we recommend the 8836M Non-Contact Forehead Ir Thermometer or Extech IR200.

    If in doubt please contact our Sales Department at 0113 248 9966.


    Like its little brother the TG54, the FLIR TG56 Spot IR Thermometer’s main advantage over other infrared thermometers is its impressive distance to spot ratio which allows the user to remotely measure the temperature of an out-of-reach object. In the case of the TG56, this ratio is 30:1 which means that the user can take readings from inaccessible objects as well as staying at a safe distance from extremely hot surfaces. Lasers highlight the exact location of the reading for increased accuracy. The readings are precise to 0.1℃ and accurate to 1℃ / 1% whilst the measurement range goes from -30℃ to +650℃.

    In addition to the infrared sensor, the TG56 comes with a general purpose Type K thermocouple for taking invasive measurements and performing more detailed inspections. The user-friendly interface is clearly displayed on a colour LCD screen and the user has the choice of 4 pre-set emissivity settings as well as a custom option. Furthermore, the current reading can be displayed simultaneously alongside the two most recent measurements at the push of a button. A bright work light is included for working in darkness whilst audio and visual alarms can be set to sound when temperatures fall outside set parameters.

    The TG56 is a small, lightweight device with an 8 hour battery life that is perfect for carrying around and performing multiple inspections through the day. The auto power-off function also helps save the batteries. It’s rugged build-quality means it can be dropped from 3m without permanent damage and the user also benefits from a 5-year warranty for further peace of mind.
