Need IR thermometer with datalogging capability.

Need IR thermometer with datalogging capability.


I tried to look through omega catalog online, also looked at fluke and couldnt quite find what I needed.

I need an infrared temperature datalogger, but not the handheld kind. It has to be something I can mount with a bracket for continuous monitoring at a set distance. I will be monitoring brake rotor temperature using this device so it can't be the point and shoot type (too big and clumsy wont fit in the wheel well of a car).

It has to be under the 350 dollar range and I need this device in my hands by thursday (I live in southeast US).

It needs to be able to sample at 1-2 sample/sec or better and be able to store at least 30 minutes of data, download it to a computer for later analysis. One channel is fine as long as it can log data and export as CSV or like format.

I found one made by Extech but it had pretty bad reviews and looks difficult to mount(handheld type).

Please help me find this device, I will be forever grateful!!

Thank you
