Description: ThermoHawk 200:


Q3 Innovations makes environmental sensors, DOT/NHTSA/FDA-approved breathalyzers, UV level indicators & recently introduced a New product series called the ThermoHAWK touchless, compact thermometer. Website: www.q3i.com


For you Cheap Hams, they are Toll Free: 888-399-1687.


This unit is the Ultimate Hammy Radio GADGET! You can measure just about any surface temperature in the shack and in your rigs… and… “you can literally stick it in your ear” as the saying goes and read your body temperature. Of course this is Not a medically certified unit. Measure your coffee cup temp. so you don’t burn your tongue… the uses are endless.


ThermoHAWK 200 is a touchless thermometer that allows you to instantly check the surface temperature of almost any object. Employing thermopile technology, the ThermoHAWK series measures the intensity of incident radiation, which is typically visible or infrared light. This device is extremely compact in size, does not require calibration, and takes only a fraction of a second to measure temperature… did I say it is Quick?


Reusuable Package Includes:
· ThermoHAWK 200
· 2 x L1154 button batteries
· Owners manual


ThermoHAWK 200 is stylish & durable. Aluminum body can take abuse while using on included keychain/keyring or in a pocket with it’s included end cap… did I say Handy?


Infrared sensor is protected by a pop off style cap. The inner plastic lining of the cap is rugged & feels snug, sealing the sensor to keep out dust, water, even pesky pocket lint. The battery butt end is made like a Mini-MagLite… did I say Well-Made?


LCD on the ThermoHAWK 200 displays Celsius or Fahrenheit (toggle switch is found opposite display-Use paperclip to Toggles modes) plus Battery Indicator. Simple, attractive, rugged, single button operation. Click for instant infrared sensor measurement. Keep button pressed for real-time temperature changes… did I say this unit is Cool?

Observations:
ThermoHAWK 200 works great. Spot ratio of 1:1 means to take an accurate measurement, position the tip of the unit no further away than the size of the area you wish to measure. If you position unit Further away from point to be measured, temperature reported by unit will be different due to capture area of sensor.


PLUSES:
· Attractive Compact Excellently Manufactured Brushed Metal Finish
· Range: -27F to +230F (Celsius Switchable)
· Fast 1-second measurements
· LCD Easy-Read Display
· Factory-Direct Price @ $34.99
MINUSES:

CONCLUSION:
This pocket-sized, accurate & durable, device optically measures temperatures quickly, efficiently. ThermoHAWK 200 can measure anything within its operating range of –27F to +230F or Celsius readout. ThermoHAWK 200 performs flawlessly. Function & Design are fantastic. A Quality measurement tool for $34.99 Factory Direct.

Super Hammy Radio GADGET!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I must admit I am a Hammy Radio GADGET kinda guy. So when I saw this ThermoHAWK-200 unit on sale, I bought Two of ‘em. I was very impressed with the Re-usable packaging. The Manual is goof-proof. The unit Looks like a million bucks too.

Of course, the fact that the company is a real company and makes all kindsa Gov’t certified stuff and sells Toll-Free factory-direct makes a person feel warm and fuzzy that it is not a Fly-By-Nite operation.

You can’t screw up the battery install IF you just look at the Picture!

The unit comes with a super neat quality Clip AND a Keyring… Or you can just remove all the clips and stuff it in your pocket cuz the LCD Display is Recessed to help against scratching. It Automatically turns itself OFF so you caint fergit.

I turned Both of them ON to convince myself the factory-calibration was no joke. They read within half a degree Fahrenheit… impressive!

The unit uses TWO provided LR-44 batteries you can get at Wally World or Rat Shak… however… since it is Not backlit they most probably will last a long time.

In my personal opinion, aside from the accuracy, the best thing about this unit is the quality of the machined aluminum, easy-reading LCD and the provided chain, clip and ring… And batteries INCLUDED!

Design, manufactured quality, function, size, accuracy, Included Stuff truly Earn this unit the wv4r FIVE-Star rating. 73 es God bless, murf/wv4r.
