    I don't use it for single temperature readings due to potential inaccuracy. I use it more for differential temperature readings. I think mine is Raytek or something like that.

    Good little unit for ballpark temp readings.

    This one also good for ballpark measurements ,, also can have a K-Type Thermocouple plugged in.
