Default DV Hardware reviews the ThermoHawk 200 Touchless thermometer

sswilson found the review for this little gadget, and it looks like it might be a great new way to find out which component of your 680i is frying today .

"The ThermoHAWK series are touchless infrared thermometers which allow you to check the temperature of almost any object. They are manufactured by Q3 Innovations, a company specialised in personal safety & monitoring devices. They seem to be pretty keen on the "HAWK" suffix as besides the ThermoHAWK series they also have the AlcoHAWK and UV HAWK series. The first ones are digital breath alcohol screeners and the latter are tools to measure the intensity of UV light.

There are four different versions of the ThermoHAWK. The ThermoHawk 200, ThermoHawk 400 and ThermoHawk 400L. The difference between the 200 and 400 model is the measurement range. The 200 goes to 110C (230F) while the 400 goes all the way up to 220C (428F).

The ThermoHawk 200 and 400 are designed as keychain attachment gadgets - the ThermoHawk 400L has the same specifications as the ThermoHawk 400 but features a flashlight at the end instead of a keychain ring. The 400L is a bit bigger and uses one AAA battery instead of two LR44 batteries. "

Does anyone know the cdn prices for the ThermoHawk and where someone can get one of these gadgets. Preferably in Canada. Nice find by the way.

After a quick search I wasn't able to find any for sale in Canada, but there are all sorts of infra-red thermometers available to the scientific community- There are many available under the name Thermo Haake (german company) which is probably the parent company of these guys. I would guess that these scientific-grade ones are pricier though- the one I looked at was 200 dollars, but looked pretty neat. Here's a link to a Canadian Vendor:

Nice but way outa my budget lol. At least for a thermometer. I was thinking more in the $30-$40 range. Oh well I'll keep looking. What would be the most accurate software temp monitor? Any suggestions? I'm just using Asus probe at the moment.

MBM is a great tool if it supports your board.

Same goes for speedfan if somebody has gone to the trouble of doing a good user config for it.

Yeah, I could see spending $50-$60 on one if I could find it, but $200 would be a bit much unless I really had a use for it.

I'm sure the one listed in the review is much cheaper than the labratory-grade one that I mentioned- the sensitivity and temperature range and build quality is much higher on the $200 'thermo haake' than on the 'thermo hawk'.

If I had to guess , I would say it was under 50
