The TG56 Spot IR (Infrared) Thermometer provides non-contact surface temperature readings so you can quickly and easily take measurements in places that are out of reach. Providing a distance-to-spot ratio of 30:1, the TG56 can measure smaller targets from a safer distance. New mode options give you control to view your current reading and last two temperature readings simultaneously. The TG56 is built with a colour screen that makes it easy to navigate and select settings, plus adds visibility and efficiency to the advanced feature set. The TG56 is your go-to, pocket-sized device for efficient temperature measurement. Includes wrist strap lanyard, quick start guide, general purpose type k thermocouple, user manual (CD) and 3 x AAA batteries.

Best used in the evening or night when the ground is cooled or after a rain. Excellent to pinpoint their warm furry bodies within their final resting place.
Within the first hour, I had identified and eliminated over a dozen moles looking to make my summer miserable. Looking at the cost of this vs. the past year of repellents, useless sonic stakes and other methods, this has proven its worth...and more!
First off, the TG54 is wonderfully compact and sleek in design, with weight distribution right down the center of the device. No tipping forward or backward when holding and using the device. The included additional function of a forward facing LED light is a very convenient for engaging in thermal measurements in poorly lit area, a very nice design touch indeed.
The TG54 actually uses a anti-reflection coated IR lens while run-of-the-mill infrared thermometers of this price class will use plastic Fresnel lens. This give this small unit an absurdly high spot to distance ratio of 24:1 (1 inch circle when 2 feet away from target). This spot to distance ratio is only available in higher end models of other manufacturer costing multiples of the cost of the FLIR TG54. Hitting small measurement areas will never be difficult again. Do note that the spot will not reduce to any smaller than the actual front aperture of the TG54 of 0.75 inch as a rule of thumb (i.e. 0.75 inch spot when 18 inches away from target is the limit, any nearest will still be 0.75 inch spot)
The laser guide on the TG54 is actually calibrated and aligned to be parallel to the optical axis of the IR lens. This means that where the laser touches, you can estimate the optical center of measurement to be about 0.75 inch below the laser dot. Totally takes the guess work out of IR temperature measurements.
The TG54 also features adjustable emissivity settings, allowing measuring highly reflective items (i.e. stainless steel pipes, chrome plated metal items, polished drive shafts, etc.) a breeze. You may want to print out a small emissivity table and attached it to the lanyard point on the TG54 for a convenient guide to the emissivity setting of the material you are measuring.
One small gripe with the unit to date is that there is a significant pause before the unit comes alive when the measure trigger is pulled when the unit is on cold shutdown mode (i.e. screen dark). But when the screen is still on, measurement mode is triggered without delay and measurement update fast enough to allow for you to scan an area quickly to determine the highest temperature observed.
Lastly, the TG54 runs off 3 x AAA batteries which is easy to find and much more long lasting than 9V batteries that most other IR thermometers requires. Substituting the alkaline AAA to typical Ni-MH rechargeable batteries does not detrimentally affect performance.
Overall one of the best pieces of measurement hardware I have acquired to date, will not hesitate to purchase any product from FLIR!
