The FTK takes between 5 and 15 minutes to heat and stabilise at the desired temperature  depending on the model), and uses a clear LED to show when it has reached that temperature: green when the FTK is warming up, orange when the FTK is ready for operation and red when the FTK is above the calibration temperature.
The FTK can be used with any infrared temperature sensor that is able to measure  between 35ºC and 150ºC and can focus on a target area less than Ø 50.8 mm.

The FTK provides a quick and accurate way to check the calibration of infrared temperature sensors.
It is designed to provide fast calibration checks anywhere they are needed, from the factory to the workshop or laboratory.
  1. For the sensor being checked, ensure it can measure a spot no larger than 50.8 mm at the desired measurement distance.
  2. Place the FTK in the same ambient temperature conditions as the sensor and switch on the power.
  3. For best results, the FTK should be mounted in a calibration room, and the sensors brought to it for checking. In this case, allow the sensors to acclimatise to the ambient conditions of the calibration room for at least 20 minutes before measuring.
  4. Allow the FTK temperature to stabilise for 5 to 15 minutes after power on, depending on the model. Higher-temperature models require a longer stabilisation period.
  5. Measure the temperature.

Dimensions (mm)

The FTK is supplied with a mains power adapter and either a UK, Europe, USA, or Australia plug (please specify on your order).


Adjustable ball and socket mounting block.

The FTK is priced from £969. Contact Calex for a quotation.
