For those who need the best infrared thermometer you might want to consider the Lasergrip 630 in a contemporary black finish with blue-gray console. This temperature gun has the highest maximum temperature that can be measured by any device as far as this list is concerned at 1076oF. If you’re thinking of measuring just how hot your car’s engine can turn out after a grueling ride in the mountains, then this one’s for you.
The distance-to-spot ratio is also way higher than the conventional 12:1 at 16:1. This means you get to measure the exact temperature of a scorching hot surface without ever getting close to it and without ever sacrificing the accuracy of the temperature readings. One can also easily adjust the emissivity settings to compensate for the heat naturally emitted by various surfaces so you’ll obtain the correct temperature reading.
