Superior Spot-Size Performance

The E53’s spot-size ratio allows you to take the most accurate temperature readings on smaller targets, at farther distances.

Features to Help You Troubleshoot

The E53 measures up to 650°C (1200°F), offers 3 spot meters and displays the max/min temperature within an area live, on-screen.

Streamlined Reporting

Customizable work folders, a built-in mic for voice annotation, and report generation features all help the E53 streamline your workday.
