The Extech Dual Laser InfraRed Thermometer indicates ideal measuring distance when two laser points converge to a 1" target spot.
The Extech Dual Laser InfraRed Thermometer features a fast 100mS response with highest accuracy at a point where the dual lasers converge. The fast response is ideal for quick checks of multiple spots in a process or for catching spikes in temperature. The high 50:1 distance to target ratio measures smaller surface areas at greater distances.
A type K thermocouple probe input ranges from -58 to 2498°F (.50 to 1370°C). The white backlit multifunction LCD displays a bargraph for analysis of data points. The adjustable high/low set points with audible alarm alerts users when the temperature exceeds the programmed set points. Also included is a tripod mount for continous readings, and software to connect to a PC via USB port.

Rivers are a vital cooling source for power plants, but high-temperature water returned to rivers from the plants may detrimentally heat rivers and change aquatic ecosystems, according to a recent study. Scientists from the University of New Hampshire and the City College of New York gathered federal data on power plants and river systems and linked up river flow and heat transfer models to figure out just how hot rivers get in the northeastern U.S. They found that about one third of heat generated in thermoelectric power plants in the Northeast is drained into rivers via used cooling water. Just more than a third of the total heat generated at plants in the Northeast is converted directly into electricity for consumer use.Read More
A pair of lonesome data buoys bobbing off Michigan’s storm-whipped Lake Superior shore were suddenly the stars of the state this fall when they captured the largest waves ever measured on the Great Lakes. The buoys, near Granite Island and Munising, each recorded 28.8-foot significant wave heights during a storm that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage along the coast. The record wave height exceeded the previous 27.6-foot record set by a Michigan Tech buoy near Houghton, Mich., in 2012. To give some perspective on the rarity of these types of events, waves at the record-capturing buoys only climbed above 12 feet four times throughout 2015 and 2016.Read More
Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.Read More
