DexTemp™ 1000 Non-Contact Infrared Temperature Monitor

The Dexter Research Center’s DexTemp™ 1000 is a small, cost-effective, calibrated, non-contact alerting thermometer designed to monitor an object’s temperature using infrared technology. The tool can operate in combination with a Windows® based computer. The computer’s USB port powers the tool. The DexTemp™ 1000 is based on Dexter’s expertise in infrared thermopile technology.

The software offers real-time temperature plots, data logging on the computer and high or low temperature variations via SMS text and email alerts. The user can set the temperature alert limits.

The DexTemp™ is programmed to alert the user anytime if something goes off track, regardless of the location of user, by utilizing globally enabled networking, SMS mobile messaging, and email to guarantee notification. Likewise, text/email notification is sent when temperature returns to pre-determined limits. The alerts can be both audible and visual alarms on computer.

The tool is capable of monitoring the temperature of equipment, such as process controls, A/C, HVAC, server rooms, livestock, refrigerated goods, wine cellars, freezers, perishable products or others likely to be affected by temperature that is critical to the overall operation.

There are no subscriptions, no ongoing fees and no required service plans. The onscreen graphing allows full logging of all data along with onscreen graphing.
