The OS-MINIUSB is a miniature infrared sensor that measures the surface temperature of a solid or liquid without contact. It can measure non-metal surfaces between -20 and 1000°C (-4 and 1832°F), with a response time of just 125 ms.
Materials including paper, thick plastics, rubber, food and organic materials, as well as painted metals and most dirty, rusty or oily surfaces, are measured accurately, safely and cleanly.
A choice of optics is available to measure small or large targets at distances ranging from a few millimeters up to tens of meters.
The OS-MINIUSB has a rugged stainless steel housing, sealed to IP65, and is built to withstand ambient temperatures of up to 75°C (167°F).
Compact The sensor is just 45 mm (1.77") long (plus cable gland), so it can fit into very small spaces. The USB interface is built into the sensor, so there is no need for additional bulky interface modules.
Benchtop and Laboratory With the precision and robustness of our industrial pyrometers, and the plug-and-play convenience of USB, the OS-MiniUSB is the ideal fixed mount IR temperature sensor for testing and experimentation.
Education The OS-MINIUSB is ideal for teaching science concepts such as emissivity, reflectivity, thermal conductivity, energy transfer, insulation and internal energy.

This is a great productOur lab purchased two of these thermometers at 20:1. They are very easy to install and great for monitoring surface temperatures. The only real downside for our purchases was the 6 week lead time.
The associated free software (OmegaConfig 1.08) is functional but a little clunky. Being able to switch between a digital temperature value and a graph while recording is handy, but the axes of the graph constantly autoscale, and it would be nice to be able to set these manually. The sensor logs all data automatically, so there's no separate save step necessary. This does mean parsing through a long log (.csv) file later, but there are handy divisions inserted in the file any time recording is stopped and restarted.
