DHS125XEL Economy Hybrid Infrared Thermometer

DHS125XEL Economy Hybrid Infrared Thermometer


Temperature range is -25° to +1400°F (-32° to +760°C).  Distance to spot ratio is 12:1, and spectral range is 5 to 14 μm.

The Wahl Heat Spy DHS125XEL is a hybrid contact and non-contact thermometer.  Using a K Type thermocouple as a reference, this unit has built in software that determines the emissivity of a target object and automatically adjusts the emissivity of the instrument to the proper setting.  This handheld unit is lightweight and easy to hold; thermocouple plugs in to side of unit.  Distance to spot ration is 12:1; measure temperatures up to 1400°F (760°C) from a comfortable distance.

This model includes advanced features, including:

  • Display thermocouple measurements on screen
  • Max / Min / Average / ΔT calculations
  • Hi & Low alarms - screen changes color
  • Ten points of memory

The DHS125XEL comes with user manual 9V battery, and canvas holster style case with belt loop.

Thermocouple Surface Probe sold separately.

NIST Calibration Available, sold separately.
