the laser in there is a red laser and that is only so you can point at what you are taking the temp of. if you see above or below the laser you will see a round area (usually) and that portion is what takes the temp.

Default Re: Is this possible to do.

I have a digital thermometer like you are describing.
It doesn't have a diode (no reference dot for where you are measuring the temp).
That is a sensor, not a diode.
Might be able to put it into a controlled environment and make a LPM though*

@ jakeGT, sorry again but if is possible to make a digital infrared thermometer and the only reason was because I saw the inside of the tip of the object and it looks like a diode so I thought maybe some one from here may know how to build one of thus little object. Thanks again.

Well thank you for clearing that up for me, I was only saying, that it looks like a diode, cause from the top it looks like one. But thanks again.

Yeah, no worries bro.
I looked for laser diodes EVERWHERE before I joined LPF ^_^
My local computer stores still call me up whenever they get a buildup of almost any old computer parts.
I bring them coffee and doughnuts for their trouble

Oh that's cool man. Lucky you getting stuff for cheap but changing subject can someone build a digital infrared thermometer, from stuff you could buy online.

Not really worth it, you can get the thermometer for a couple of bucks on fleabay as it is. That probably includes batteries
Pretty hard to beat "made in China" on the prices!.
