Waterproof Infrared Thermometer SK-8950

Sato SK-8950 is a waterproof type Infrared thermometer having the circle laser marker that surrounds the measuring area with red laser.

The Waterproof/dustproof property is IP 54.

The measuring range is -60 to 550°C.

Emissivity is settable with 0.01 steps between 0.10 to 1.00


  • Possible to operate the thermometer with wet hands.
  • Waterproof/dustproof property: JIS C 0920 IP54
  • Without contacting the object, the IR thermometer can quickly detect the surface temperature. So the non-contact type thermometer acheives sanitary and safety measurement
  • The circle laser marker surrounds the measuring area. So you can easily confirm the measureing area
  • Emissivity can be set with 0.01 steps in the range of 0.10 to 1.00.  For the accurate measurement, it is required to set the proper emissivity depending on the object measured.
  • Buzzer sounds when the measured value exceeds the upper and lower values.
  • Various display functions are equipped: MAX (max. temp.), MIN (min. temp.), AVG (average temp.), DIF (difference between max. and min. temperatures)
  • Auto measurement function:  Without holding the trigger down, continuous measurementcan be done.
  • Backlight: You can easily read the measured value in the dark
  • Auto Power-off function
  • When the trigger is released, the display of the measured value is held for one minute and then the power turns off automatically. 
  • This model carrys PSC mark that is comform to the Consumer Product Safety Act.  Laser application product (laser class II)

In SK-8950, the distance and the diameter of measurement area (D:S) is approx. 12:1 
When the distance between SK-8950 and measuring object is 600mm, the diameter of measurement area becomes 50mm diameter circle.

The distance and spot size (The measuring spot is defined on the basis of the area that receives 90% or more of the energy)

Relation of measurement area and the position of circle marker
The laser marker of SK-8950 is a circle type
The circle laser marker and the measurement area are matched when the measurment distance is 2000mm


* Cautions
Do not look into the laser marker or point it at anybody's eyes. Doing so may damage your eyes.

Standard for Safe Use of Laser Products (JIS C6802): "Class II" is defined as follows:

A visible light (of wavelengths in the visible region: 400 nm through 700 nm) with an output level (approx. 1 mW or less) that is normally regarded harmless with respect to humans' physical defense capabilities.
