How accurate is the Temperature measurement using the FLIR Thermal Camera?

Under typical conditions, temperature measurements have a tolerance of up to 5°C or 5% (typically 3°C or 3%). When high temperature mode is enabled (for temperatures between 120°C and 400°C) the accuracy is slightly reduced.

The accuracy of the temperature indicated by the Cat S61 can be affected by a number of external and environmental factors. The most influencial factor is the emissivity (glossy or matte nature) of the object being observed and the distance to the object. Other influences may be weather conditions or proximity to other hot or cold objects that may be reflecting off the targeted object.
